Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Books With Cookies And Milk (5)

The Noisy Noisy Farm

The Noisy Noisy Farm, Stephanie Stansbie, Hardcover

Written by:  Stephanie Stansbie
Illustrated by:  Veronica Vasylenko

A book full of surprise sounds.  One by one the animals on the farm call out to Rooster - MEOW! QUACK! BAAAA! MOO!  But, no doodle-doing at all!  Read why Rooster can not be found and why finally, his wake-up call is louder than ever!

My Grandson loves this story.  He loves hearing the animals as the story is being read to him.
