CanyouGrowlBookcoverReview by Mary Edinger Shive

“Can You Growl Like a Bear” by John Butler is truly beautiful book that brings animals to life on the pages in an artistic and imaginatively fun way.

The book itself is large in size and has wonderful colors and drawings that interested my two-year-old son. This book was so interactive; he loved to make the animal sounds that were depicted in the illustrations.

We have used this book as a platform to discuss animals and their locations and habitats, the fact that the text is simple allows him to use his imagination and make up stories about the animals and what they are doing in day to day life.

This is a wonderful book that allows the imagination to take hold and expand. Great book to jump start the love of animals. This would be a great book for children ages 2 and up that enjoy interactive books about animals.
