The Sounds Around Town

 

The Sounds Around Town

Follow a baby throughout the day, listening to all the sounds of life in the city. The colorful spreads are adorned with sound words to try out, and the rhyming text uses repetition for easy learning.
Ages 1 to 7 years
Written By: Maria Carluccio

The day has just begun, and there are all kinds of sounds to listen to: the drip drip of the coffee maker
the beep beep of taxis, the coo coo of pigeons and lots more throughout the day.


What kind of sounds can you hear around town?




Maria Carluccio has studied art all over the world and has also taught drawing and illustration at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. She comes from a creative background - her mother was an artist and her father was a lawyer and writer.


Maria finds her inspiration in everything around her, from the knick-knacks she collects in flea markets to scraps of interesting paper she finds on the streets. She lives in New York with her husband, their daughter, and their dog and cat. This is her second project for Barefoot, following Skip through the Seasons (2004)
