Oink, Moo, Neigh

C has been learning and practicing his animal noises lately.  He will copy almost any noise we make, and does a decent job.  He has mastered:

Roar - and can I say, he couldn't be more adorable when he roars!
Ooo-Ooo Aaa-Aaa

and is working steadfastly on
Gurgle (fish sound)
and more!

We've had lots of great animal books to help us out along the way.  Even though most of them do not specifically emphasize animal sounds, we add them in!

Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Eric Carle
My First Word Bath Book has a really great animal page with vibrant pictures
Shark in the Dark  by Ben Cort- a great rhmying book, and we do roar for the shark, and gurgles for the fish.
Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina - lots of monkeys!
Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? by Dr. Suess 
The Farmyard Tales series has lots of different animals too. 

Also, Sandra Boynton has some really fantastic books.
Moo, Baa, La La La
Doggies!  - Lots of woof, bark, arf-arf, and a nice long howl too!
And my new favorite, a gift from Aunt B, is called Perfect Pigs, and you can download the song from her website!  Highly recommended!
