Animal Sound Mix-up is a fun, rhyming picture book that explores different animal sounds and why animals make the sounds they do.

Inspirational Poetry of Connie Arnold
Children's Books and Poems
Guardian Angel Publishing

Mixed up animals sound, rhyming verses and colorful, lively illustrations combine to make a humorous book for young children to have fun while they are learning.


What if a mouse began to roar,
would it seem stronger than before?
Or if an elephant gave a squeak
might it seem to be quite weak?

Lighthearted but Meaningful
Wouldnít it be confusing if you heard a donkey say bow-wow? Would you scratch your head if a monkey said moo? How about some squawking pigs? Seen any of those lately? In this silly, rhyming story, Connie Arnold asks readers what it would be like if all the animal sounds got mixed up.

I like books that can be zany, but still have an excellent message. Animal Sound Mix-up is definitely one of those books. While itís light-hearted, by the time the reader gets to the end, they realize Godís hand in creation is quite evident. Animals speak the way they do because He made them each to speak in their own unique way. Itís a nice message. A different take on the power of the Creator than Iíve seen before.

Arnoldís rhymes are perfectly matched by the lovely artwork of Kit Grady. All types of animals come alive with Gradyís colorful images. Any of these illustrations would make lovely murals for a childís room. I only wish she didnít live so far away from me. :)

Animal Sound Mix-up is a fun book with a great message. Christian homes with youngsters will enjoy this book.

Adorable, Unusual
Animal Sound Mix-UP is so adorable! The Author, Connie Arnold has a terrific vision seeing animals speak in an unusual mix-up way. For instance Connie writes {ďWhat if when you went to the Zoo all the Monkeys were to mooĒ}. That would be so funny to hear a Monkey Moo!

After I read this adorable book, I read it to my son, he giggled so hard! We both kept giggling. Thatís what you want to read to your children, a light hearted rhyming story that getís your child laughing and thinking how unusual it would be if the animal sounds were mixed up.

This book is a must read and should be in stores, libraries, schools and in your home!

I rank Animal Sound Mix-UP a 5!

Giggles and Belly Laughs
Imagine if animals got confused and exchanged voices with each other. Thatís just what happens in the picture book, Animal Sound Mix-Up. Silliness abounds as a mouse roars, a donkey barks, and monkeys moo. I liked the bookís easy-to-read, rhyming text explaining the muddled mumblings of the various critters. The charming illustrations complement the words, showing animals with happy expressive faces.

I recommend this book for children age 2 and up, although parents, grandparents and teachers will appreciate it, too. Animal Sound Mix-Up is just the right length to read during childrenís church, but would work for Sunday school or a preschool class, too. Toward the end, the book provides a simple way to help children understand Godís perfect design.

Get ready for giggles and belly laughs as you enjoy the absurdity of animals uttering the wrong sounds. Donít be surprised if kids ask to read this one again and again.
