Too Much Noise (Sandpiper Books) Reviews
A classic. Bought this about 10-15 years ago.
What a funny, silly picture book! I've read this to K-2 classes and they get the point: We complain until we see life could be worse. And that is the lesson the "wise man" of the village teaches "old man" Peter. But HOW he "trickily" teaches this is the fun of the story.
I read this book to my daughter when she was a toddler. It became the book she always asked me to read to her at nap time. We both enjoyed its humor and problem-solving for tykes. The message to appreciate what you have was communicated easily to little minds in this story. Our copy was lost in a house fire and we talked about how we missed the book from time to time as her children grew up. This Christmas I was able to find a copy and gave it to her as a gift. She was so surprised and happy with this reminder of some pleasant times we shared when she was small enough to climb on my lap. Her youngest child is 4 years old and perfect for this book, although much younger and much older children will also enjoy the story.
Excellent book! One of my all time favorites. Only enhanced by an animated reader!
I bought this book for my mother. It was her favorite book as a child. She still has the copy she owned when she was little. Her copy's cover was missing and the pages were brown with age (signs of a well loved children's book). The story is so cute with a simple message; appreciate what you have. The illustrations are simple but descriptive and the expressions on the character's faces are spot on. My children (7 & 4) love this book as well. They enjoy all the animal sounds and like to look for all the animals as Peter's room fills up. This book has been a part of our family's library for 3 generations now and will continue to be a staple of our children's reading for years to come.
Get your 'reading aloud' skills honed up for the sound effects and prepare for multi-generational amusemen. We had this book in soft cover when our four children were little but finding it again, I can say for certain that the most fun you've ever had is easily found when reading this to grandchildren.
One of my very favorite books when growing up. Should be in every kids young library.
This is a good "fun" book . . . .keeps the interest of our very busy 3 1/2 year old grandson . . .makes him think as we read it about the "noises" made by different things and animals. . . . and how once each is added, the noise increases ~ but also as they are taken away, the noise decreases. In addition, it shows that sometimes what you had before you wished for something else,was actually good and what you wanted all along.
