Non Fiction Book Review: Sounds of the Wild

Sounds of the Wild by Moira Butterfield

Sounds of the Wild

5 out of 5 stars

You can explore island habitats around the world, and learn all about the amazing creatures that live there. This book has 9 sounds of animals, birds, and even whales that live on (or near) the islands of Sumatra, the Galapagos, the Azores, and other islands.

Each page has a jungle, beach, or ocean scene with several interesting animals and a paragraph giving information about each one. They hunt and fish. They fight for territory, and hide their young. They are noted for their extreme size, fast speed, or clever skills. I love that the book features many endangered animals, raising awareness about preserving these precious and rare creatures.

Then you can press the area indicated on the page to hear sounds from those animals. It really brings the page to life and sounds like a zoo! I really like that this book has an on/off switch on the back so that you can save the battery.

I love the bright illustrations, and the strong colors really draw your attention. At the end of the book there is a map of the world, showing where each of the islands is located, and a list of animals that are currently under threat of extinction.

I recommend this book for readers aged 5-11.
