Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?
Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?
Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?
by Dr. Seuss

There isn't a sound Mr. Brown can't do, from a hippo's gumchewing to a goldfish's kiss. The noisemakers are graphically illustrated and the "sound effects" are printed in big lettering.

Age: 4 Year-olds | Title: Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?  |  Author: Dr. Seuss  |  Publisher: Random House Children's Books

There isn't a sound Mr. Brown can't do, from a hippo's gumchewing to a goldfish's kiss. The noisemakers are graphically illustrated and the "sound effects" are printed in big lettering.

Fill your house with fun new noises when you read Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? with your little one. The book reads in the traditional rhythm and rhyme found in all Dr. Seuss books, promising a flowing cadence of silly fun. The new sound effect words - some expected and many new - are distinguished in large colorful font so your little one will learn which queue to look for to join in the fun. Every page has more creative characters depicted in the famous Seuss-style and bright contrasting colors. With each page, the sounds build on one another, recapping often, and creating longer and longer Seussical songs; "Eek Eek, Eek Eek, Cock-a-doodle-doo, Hoo Hoo, Hoo Hoo, How about you?"

Have you ever wondered what you little one would sound like imitating a hippopotamus chewing gum? Get ready to find out! You will both learn many new ideas of what familiar sounds could also sound like; did you ever consider that rain goes, "Dibble dibble dibble dopp" or that a horn goes, "Blup blurp blurp"? The more fun you have with the sound effects, the more fun your child will have listening. Hopefully, they will even join in! You can have them practice sounding out the words to figure out the funny sounds all on their own, or perhaps they'll find new ways to express the sound effect words by the final page when everything is thrown together into one large funny-sounding song.

My friend, Nick, told me this is his favorite book - but only when his dad reads it because, "he reads it right." Apparently, Nick's mom and I do not do the sounds correctly, and it is no fun if he has to 'teach' us. I was persistent and tried all kinds of different ways to make the noises until I finally at least made Nick laugh. That's all I was really looking for, so I consider the reading a success...finally.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines.

Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!
In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best - selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.
