Hello Readers,

Back again, with something a little different today. This is a post about a children’s book which my sister, Ruth, has written and illustrated by herself, so if reading about children’s books is not your thing, turn off now! But if it is, or you are looking for something a little different for your own children/ grandchildren/ nieces/ nephews/ godchildren/ pupils etc then read on!

Who Makes That Noise? is a brilliant, fun book suitable for all children up to the age of 4. I think the “coloured version” of the book (read on to see what I mean) is really fantastic…bold and colourful…and the children are engaged from the outset, trying to guess “Who Makes That Noise?”, as well as imitating animal noises and playing along. Here’s a couple of pages as an example:

The book is 32 pages long and my daughter (who’s currently 5) thought is was great. It’s something I would have definitely considered buying for her when she was younger.

BUT wait! There is MORE! There is also a unique opportunity for children to make this book truly their own as there is also a Colouring Zoo….that is, a black and white edition of Who Makes That Noise? featuring the same illustrated animals and characters for children to colour in. Just imagine…not being told off for writing in your story books. Yeah! The Colouring Zoo could be bought as a standalone book, or as a follow-on to the coloured version.

Who Makes That Noise? will by available in print from next month (June 2014) from online retailers, including your countries Amazon and Barnes and Nobles site. It should also be available from your local book store – you can always ask them to order it for you if they don’t stock it.

In the UK you can also order directly from The Goldman Press.

I think it’s a great concept, and it would be a fun, educational gift to give to any little boy or girl. My sister has worked so hard to make this happen – and it shows! I really hope you will support a talented, independent author.

Until soon….

About sewmanju

I love to shop, but I also love to sew my own clothes, and am currently on a mission to improve my (fairly basic) dressmaking skills. I confess to going into shops and being outraged at the prices of some (not very well made) garments (is it an age thing?) and think "huh, I could make some thing at least as good as that for less" (is it something to do with coming from the Indian subcontinent?) So this blog details my sewing endeavours, both good and bad....I love to nosey through other people's sewing projects....now everyone can get to see mine.

    So cute. Is it available in the USA? Love the coloring book option.

      Hi Beth. Yes both options will be available in the USA from next month, but the colouring zoo will be called an activity book, and will only be available from Amazon.

      Who Makes That Noise will also be available on Kindle.

      Hope you manage to get what you want and enjoy!

    So lovely…I love the idea of having the kiddies colour in their own too. Congrats to your sister, wish her every success with it.
