Description


This delightful poem with art from renowned illustrator Tomie dePaola is a perfect first book for sharing with young children.

Crickets creak. Mice squeak. Sheep baa. But I SPEAK!

Three children lead us through a menagerie of animals and the sounds they make. Young children won't be able to resist roaring, hooting, and neighing along!
