Toot, Toot, Hoot, Hoot Sounds from the Symphony

We rated this book:


This children’s book combines modern technology using QR codes with providing a transition for little readers from board books to picture books with tear-resistant pages. Teaching young children about the different instruments in a symphony without actually taking a baby to the symphony can be a difficult process. This book takes the sounds the baby would hear and turns them into large and colorful words that allow the parents or adults to exclaim out loud and make the process of reading this book enjoyable overall.

There is not as much art as there is in other picture books for a similar age range, as the focus is on the sounds the instruments make. This works better for the read-and-sing-along portion than just reading it out loud, as scanning the QR code makes the process more interactive for both the child and the adult. The art of the instruments and those playing them is not that great, and the final part about the clapping audience feels out of place.
