Rumble Grumble ... Hush
|Author:||Kate Banks; Simone Shin (Illustrator)|
In a spare, lyrical text, young listeners and readers will follow a little boy through his day, from early morning till bedtime, and watch as what fills his active imagination becomes real. Toys grow to life-size: a tin monkey plays a real drum and fiddle--rat-a-tat, toot --a stuffed lion roars--rumble, grumble--and a dump truck empties its load--BANG But when quiet time comes, and a hush settles over his bedroom, animals nap, and the boy becomes absorbed in other activities, like reading and drawing.
Here is an irresistible read-aloud by a picture-book master that captures all the joy of a child's play, and renders a boy's imagination real.
