Read full description of the books:
Clang! Clang! Beep! Beep!: Listen to the City by Robert Burleigh, illustrated by Beppe Giacobbe shows many sounds a child might encounter in a busy city.
Giacobbe's illustrations are made by drawing and painting with a digital pen on a computer tablet and then layering the solid colors with textures. The colorful images include hand lettered sounds. My favorite images are trash cans, subway, ice cream selling, and wrecking ball.
I strongly disliked the illustration of barge drifting. It appears that the barge has broken away from its tug. Having grown up near the Mississippi River, that means trouble. The barge could hit and damage a dock, bridge, boat or hit something and spill its cargo, polluting the river - all bad outcomes. Barges should be pushed, not drift off!
I generally enjoyed this noisy city book. Children should enjoy interacting with the story by making the sounds. The short text should appeal to young listeners and readers. "Strutting" and "short-cutting" seem a tad forced for a rhyme, as well as possibly being unfamiliar to the target audience. The color combinations are interesting. While the ending is soothing, big cities are rarely completely quiet at night. Kids who like this may enjoy Everthing Goes: On Land. 3.5 star rating.
For ages 3.5 to 6, rhymes, sounds, cities, transportation, city-urban-life, noises, onomatopeia, emergent-reader, and fans of Robert Burleigh and Beppe Giacobbe.

Read information about the authorOver the past 35 years, I have published poems, reviews, essays, many filmstrips and videos, and more than 40 children's picture books.
Born and raised in Chicago, I graduated from DePauw University (Greencastle, Indiana) and later received an MA in humanities from the University of Chicago. I've published books for children since the early 1990s. My books - including numerous unpublished ones! - run a broad gamut, from stories geared for pre-schoolers to survival stories and biographies aimed at seven to eleven-year-olds. My work is wide-ranging because, basically, I'm a generalist by experience - and inclination!
In addition to writing, I paint regularly under the art name Burleigh Kronquist and have shown work in one-person and group shows in Chicago, New York, and elsewhere around the country.
