CAN YOU HEAR A COO, COO?

Synopsis:

In this stylized, rhyming board book, animal pairs march to a surprise destination...Noah's Ark! The book was created to allow maximum accessibility for both differently-abled and typical readers.

Featuring the work of award-winning illustrator Marc Lumer, CAN YOU HEAR A COO, COO? uses earth tones and subtle textures to boost sensory acceptance. The animal exclamations on each page invite repetition and syllabic learning through rhyme and rhythm--which studies show speak directly to the brain's natural learning style. And they are fun to say! 

This book is a PJ Library selection.

Jamie Kiffel-Alcheh is the author of CAN YOU HEAR A COO-COO? (a PJ Library selection), and the upcoming titles A HOOPOE SAYS "OOP!", LISTEN! IT'S ISRAEL (recipient of PJ Library's Author Award), THE BIGGEST OF ALL, and CONSTRUCTION KITTEN.


Jamie’s specialty is writing for children of all abilities. Many of her books contain rhymes, repetition, and funny noises, which might seem silly, because they are! But they are also the very sounds that pediatric speech therapists and special needs educators have discovered are easiest for the brain to process. And they are fun to say!


Jamie is wild about animals and the natural world, and writes cover stories about them for National Geographic KIDS. Thanks to Nat Geo, Jamie is aware of tardigrades, and suspicious of their planetary origin. As a lyricist, Jamie writes for ad campaigns and films.

She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, composer Daniel Alcheh, her daughter, Abi Eden, and her sleek and magnificent cat, Peeka.
