Book Overview

Kids will love this noise-filled Bright and Early Book classic from the one and only Dr. Seuss

Mr. Brown is a sound-making wonder He can hoo hoo like an owl and buzz buzz like a bee. It is so much fun to make noises that you hear every day, like moo and ticktock. But stranger sounds are fun to make, too . . . like the pip of a goldfish kiss and the grum grum of a hippo chewing gum. Encouraging...

The book was in good condition. However, the last two pages of the book were torn out. Kind of sad you sell a book for kids with pages ripped out.

The book was in bad shape it was not worth the money

Mis-Labeled book type

Book was ok, but came as a boardbook, not as just a hardcover as advertised and desired. Mis-advertised type. Now I have a CONDENSED version and I wanted the full

Mr. Brown Can Moo Can You?

I order Mr. Brown Can Moo Can You. It stated it was a hard cover so I ordered it. When I received it, it was a board covered book and to small.

Ordered hardcover with paper pages and got a little book with all board pages.

I ordered a hardcover book. I thought it would be like all the other hardcover Dr Seuss books I’ve ordered with paper pages, but this book is small and all the pages are board material like the cover. My grandkids don’t want to be bothered with it and call it a “baby” book. I’m hoping it was an error and they sent me the board book and not the hardcover like I ordered. I’m going to order again and I really hope it’s a hardcover with paper pages inside. Fingers crossed for positive results.

Good book for babies

My baby loved this book because of all the sounds. We exaggerated them when reading too, so that's probably why he was super into it. This is my go-to baby shower book.

What a winner with toddlers!!!

My 1 year and a half grandaughter cannot get enough of this book ( the story is about animal sounds)...her mommy has to literally read this book over and over agsin everynight before bed...:)

Ideal First Dr. Seuss Book for Your Baby!

This book deserves many more than five stars for its great ability to engage your child with books at a very young age! With this head start, you can expect to help nurture a lifelong love of books and reading.Dr. Seuss must have known that children respond more to noises than to words. So this book emphasizes noises. It also provides a wonderful opportunity to act. The facial expressions, gestures, and body movements you make will create a strong impression. Soon your baby will begin to imitate the sounds. Imitating the word syllables and words is seldom far behind. "Oh, the wonderful thingsMr. Brown can do!He can go like a cowHe can go Moo Moo"Sections all start off like that. Then they end with the encouragement to imitate:"Mr. Brown can do it. How about you?"You can point to your child then, and repeat the sound with a nice smile. Here are the animals or objects, and the sounds they make that are in the book:bee -- "Buzz Buzz"cork -- "Pop Pop"horse feet -- "Klopp Klopp Klopp"squeaky shoe -- "Eek Eek"rooster -- "Cock a Doodle Doo"owl -- "Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo"rain -- "Dibble Dibble Dibble Dopp"train -- "Choo Choo Choo Choo"butterfly -- "Whisper Whisper"horn -- "Blurp Blurp Blurp Blurp"big cat drinking -- "Slurp Slurp Slurp Slurp"clock -- "Tick Tock"hand on a door -- "Knock Knock"egg in frying pan -- "Sizzle Sizzle"hippopotamus chewing gum -- "Grum Grum"goldfish kiss -- "Pip!"thunder -- "Boom Boom Boom"lightning -- "Splatt Splatt Splatt"The sounds are repeated as partial and total lists in several places. These repetitions can be made very humorous in your reading and cause gales of baby giggles.Except for the lists, there is a beautiful large illustration to help your baby or child tie the sound to an animal or object. A good way to enhance your baby's enjoyment of the book is to notice what sounds your baby seems to like already. For example, most babies like low, comfort sounds (in the moo moo range). You can add those sounds and your own drawings (or photographs) to go with them. You could have a refrigerator go Hum Hum Hum, or a car go Wrooom Wrooom. Your own ideas will be better than mine, I'm sure. Have a wonderful time being a parent, and be sure to take the time to enjoy the pleasures of books like this one with your baby!

Terrific First Book for parents and baby!

This book is a Seuss classic and is perfect for babies as young as 4 months. The sounds are funny and you can interact with your child who will be fascinated by the noises you make when reading the story. Since the first words for many children are animal sounds, this book helps promote early speech. It makes a wonderful gift and is small enough that your child can "read" it him/herself. Highly recommended!

Great For Infants

I highly recommend this book. I have been reading it to my daughter since she was four months old and she loves it. The sounds and noises fascinate her and she never takes her eyes off the pages every time I read it to her. This is one of the few books that has kept her attention repeatedly. We read it several times a day. It's one of Dr. Seuss's best!


I started reading this book to my baby as a newborn and she is now 8 months old and loves it! I simply have to recite the words ( which I've memorized) and she just lights up. It's a great book for a small child.

Silly and Fun!

I began reading this book to my daughter at 10 months. Now that she's 18 months, she can not only supply all of the sounds ("moo", "buzzz!", "boom-boom-boom!") but she can recite many parts of the book with me. This book is perfect for the toddler who doesn't enjoy sitting still; you'd be surprised how long they want to sit in your lap and read this over and over. Now, whenever she sees a picture of a cow, she yells "MOOOOO!"
