Can you say it too? Moo! Moo! {What We’re Reading}

Can you say it too? Moo! Moo! Book review

Since turning one Rosalie has a new found love of copying and making animal noises. At the moment she can do a pretty good ‘moooo’ when you ask her ‘what noise does a cow make?’, and she also likes to make the ‘ssss’ sound for snake. We are working on ‘woof, woof’, but it’s not very commanding at present.

So with making animal noises being the thing of the moment, I thought it would be a good idea to indulge her, which is why this week we have been reading Can you say it too? Moo! Moo! by Sebastien Braun.


The illustrations are bright and bold and the flaps are big and inviting.


The animals are all cheekily poking out just a little bit from behind the flaps, making it a fun spotting and guessing game for slightly older ones; but Rosalie is content to just say ‘moo!’.


As well as friendly cow, we’ve got noisy cockerel hiding behind a bucket; hungry horse in the orchard; and woolly sheep in the field!

And who’s that hiding in the barn? It’s jolly pig and…


…her cheeky piglets!

There are more books in the Can you say it too? series, which we will definitely be looking out for at the library.

Sebastien Braun is fast becoming one of my favourite authors/illustrators. He also wrote One Sleepy Night which is a beautiful bedtime read.

What are you reading this week?

Do pop over to see what Carie at Space for the Butterflies is reading with her little ones, and join in with the What We’re Reading linky too if you have a book you’d like to share.

    That looks like a lovely book. Sophie is just at a similar stage of starting to copy the animal noises and it's adorable. Love books like this for helping encourage it.

    Aww that's so sweet – I remember when Elma first started to say moo and it was incredibly cute because like R, everything said moo! The problem comes when you get to giraffe (they're mute!). I love the illustrations in this book too – aren't those piglets just gorgeous!

    What a lovely book. It's so cute when they start making animal noises. Like with R and Elma everything went Moo for ages until Bubs discovered Cock-a-doodle-doooooooooo. 🙂

    Thanks Carie, and you're totally right, everything goes moo at the moment! And heads, shoulders, knees and toes, only has head and ears in it too! Seb Braun illustrations are fantastic x

    She's at a really lovely stage at the moment; I reckon it won't be too long before she cracks the doooooooo in cock-a-doodle-do!! x
