Title: The Sounds Around Town
Author: Maria Carluccio
Summary(from indiebound.org): What do you hear when you walk outside? This story follows a baby through his day in the city, focusing on the many sounds that he hears, from birdsong in the morning to the hubbub of traffic on the streets and the sounds and smells of the market and cafe.
Accompanying Discussion: Ask students to name some of the sounds that they hear each day, including very loud sounds, and quieter sounds that they have to listen carefully to hear.
Accompanying Activities: Ask students to draw pictures of some of the things and people that make sounds that they hear at school. More great activities here!
