A Noisy Day for Meow Meow
An illustrated book to teach children how to identify different sounds.
Inspired by the author’s cat, A Noisy Day for Meow Meow is about a particularly noisy day in the life of Meow Meow. Through expressive drawings, a funny story told in rhymes that mimic the sounds of everyday objects, it teaches young readers how to identify different sounds around the house.
