Crunch and Crack, Oink and Whack!: An Onomatopoeia Story

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Pablo Pino. On Onomatopoeia Day, Ms. Garcia's students search for examples of, well, onomatopoeia. Outside they notice baa, moo, and other animal sounds; in a workshop they hear mechanical noises like clink and buzz, and so on. The rhyming story's rhythm is jarringly uneven, but the colorful, jam-packed illustrations show onomatopoeia hunters fully engaged, with butterfly nets and magnifying glasses in hand. Reading list.
