"Roar!" ing Books such as “Roar! – A Noisy Counting Book” by Pamela Duncan Edwards can be fun to read with children. It affords many opportunities to “roar” with the cub, a chance to count, to identify colors, and to rhyme.

The images by illustrator Henry Cole bring the words to life. He has created an adorable cub one can’t help but hope finds a playmate.

Books like this where a child can participate in so many ways, make it easy to re-read in a way that is refreshing to the parent while supporting the child’s desire for repetition.  Add in some singing to add yet another way to share this wonderful book. Here’s how!  

Have fun “roaring”!
