What can you hear when you re out for a walk The tap of your shoes, the whirr of the sprinklers, the chug of the bus This classic picture book encourages you to slow down and listen to the noises all around you While the illustrations are a bit dated, the book would still make a great read aloud for a story time about the senses or an introduction to a listening walk of your own
