    1. Kiss The Book Blog, October 2013

      This is such a fun book for little people who are learning their sounds. The illustrations are simple and bright and the repetition of the format keeps little people’s interest … My child loved it and it’s a fun activity read for young people.

    2. Kids Confidential UK, December 2010

      Turns simplicity into something like an art-form, and unlike most board books, this goes the full distance – all one hundred pages of it! … Little ones will adore the bold, barmy illustrations and the opportunity to try out new sounds. Grown-ups may well be reduced to helpless giggles by the cavalcade of daft noises they’re required to make. Everyone’s a winner!

    3. Library Mice, September 2012

      This chunky (over 100 pages!) board book offers a huge selection of noises waiting to be acted out. There is an incredible selection of noises covered in this book, from the predictable baby book ones to more unconventional, and even sometimes surprising, ones. This unusual take on a staple ingredient of a baby’s book diet, teamed my Soledad Bravi’s bold, bright and uncluttered style allows The Noisy Book to stand out from the rest of the offerings in this genre.

    4. Parents in Touch UK, October 2011

      This is a lovely board book with over a hundred pages. You will have great fun reading this to your baby and there are lots of sounds not usually seen in picture books … The bright, clear and simple illustrations and their vivid contrasting backgrounds are perfect for babies and the chunky book is ideal for little hands. A super first book and great fun for reading aloud.

    5. The Weekend Sun, March 2011

      Adults love making sounds to babies. With The Noisy Book they’re given plenty of scope. This sturdy board book has over 100 pages of objects and animal noises to explore. There’s many surprises … Bright, eye-catching illustrations focus on each subject. Great fun.

    6. Scorpio Books Christchurch, January 2011

      Gecko Press is my favourite publisher! I just love their books, particularly The Noisy Book, a board book by Soledad Bravi. It’s the book I pushed most at Christmas.

    7. Around the Bookshops, November 2010

      This must be a first. A board book with over 100 pages! The pictures are bright and bold and many of the noises they depict are predictable but in some the text steps right outside the square. The power socket goes ‘no’, the bottle goes ‘mmmmm’ and the snail? Well naturally the snail doesn’t say anything – he just waves his elegant feelers. An interactive book for very small readers to share with adults.

    8. ‘Books for Christmas Giving 2010’, Storylines, November 2010

      A sturdy board book with over 100 pages of noise! A great book to share – very loudly – with ages 2+.

    9. GuideToAuckland.co.nz, December 2010

      This book will indeed make for a noisy bedtime read. With over 100 pages of bold, standout images for kids to point at, this book is perfect for early learners.

    10. Kids Books NZ, November 2010

      This could easily become a favourite carry-round item for your toddler, and would be a great book to go under the Christmas tree.

    11. Christchurch City Libraries blog, December 2010

      A board book filled with bright, bold illustrations and lots and lots of noises (over 100 pages)… What I like most are the noises you don’t expect, like `The cold goes aachoo,’ `Mummy goes kiss kiss,’ and `The power socket goes NO!’ This is the perfect book to share with babies and toddlers because everyone can enjoy making the noises.

    12. Story Time Books for Kids, November 2010

      Fun to read, and fun for the readee as well. I’ve read it several times already to the seven-month-old in my household, and we both enjoy the experience.

    13. The Source, November 2010

      The Noisy Book lives up to its name. The author’s illustrations are admirably simple, bold and colourful, a pleasing match for the easy to read text on the facing page. The board book format is flexible enough to be welcoming but strong enough to withstand small fingers.

    14. Kirkus Review (US), April 2013

      With a catalog of over 50 animals and objects on 116 thinner-than-normal-but-still-sturdy pages (probably the longest board book on record), this offering gives youngsters plenty to chatter about.

    15. Starred review, Publishers Weekly (US), March 2013

      This celebration of sound is epic in its scope and delightful in its execution… Clever and raucous fun.

    16. ‘Best books for kids 2010’, Dominion Post, December 2010

      The Noisy Book is a sturdy, fat, little board book, just the right size for the tiny fingers of pre-readers. They can also join in the satisfying and quirky noises, ‘The train goes takataka takataka. The spinach goes yuck.’

      My wife and i got really comfortable when Albert managed to carry out his basic research through the ideas he grabbed while using the web site. It’s not at all simplistic to simply happen to be giving for free tips and tricks many others might have been trying to sell. So we consider we need the blog owner to give thanks to for this. Most of the illustrations you have made, the straightforward site navigation, the friendships you will help engender – it is many overwhelming, and it’s facilitating our son in addition to our family imagine that the content is satisfying, and that is highly pressing. Thank you for the whole thing!
