In the fall, pumpkins are everywhere – in the garden, in the supermarkets, and on doorsteps. But did you know how they grow from a tiny yellow seed to a big orange pumpkin?

The book begins with children enjoying all the sounds around them. The book then shifts to discuss how a person forms sounds in their throat, with a helpful diagram on page 12. The book then goes on explaining how our ears pick up sounds from vibrations. Different sounds can alert different messages both for humans and animals. The book uses the howler monkey as a example for an animal that uses sound to keep predators away. The book also explains how bats use high pitch frequencies to move in the dark, even though they cannot see. We learn how sound waves travel through solid ground, air, and water. A mother whale also uses sound waves to to locate her baby in the ocean. This is very similar to how humans use sonar in submarines. The book goes into explaining how sounds are measured in decimals and gives many examples. The book concludes with explaining how we should be sure to protect our ears from loud, hard noises.
This book contains a lot of information on sound. I learned some new facts from reading this book, and I know students could benefit from this too. This book could be used as a supplement in a science lesson on sound waves, or could also be integrated in a music lesson discussing pitch and vibrations. As a bonus, I also enjoyed the fun and informative illustrations.
