This delightful board book teaches children about vocal volume in an entertaining and easy way. Roary loves to use his outside roar to communicate with Mommy and Daddy. However, he cannot use the same voice to communicate with the baby. Toddlers must teach Roary how to use a quiet inside voice to say good night to the baby, and in turn, learn about vocal volume themselves.

What I loved: Toddlers will giggle as Roary surprises his parents with his loud, outside roar, and then enjoy teaching Roary how to use a quiet, inside voice to speak to the baby. This book is highly interactive, asking the toddler to show Roary how to use a quiet voice, and full of fun as, oops, Roary roars too loud. The word-to-picture ratio is just perfect, and the pages turn quickly at a pace appropriate for the toddler audience. The pictures suit the text perfectly, and the multi-panel pages are loads of fun with many images to follow along with Roary’s story.

What left me wanting more: As in many children’s books, the parents are portrayed in typical gender roles (Daddy is reading a newspaper while Mommy is preparing/bringing lemonade to Roary). I would love to see more books where these roles are reversed or both parents can be, in this case, serving food or relaxing.

Final verdict: This highly enjoyable book is loads of fun for toddlers who are learning to control the volume of their voice. With giggles and teachable moments plus great images, this book is fun for younger and older toddlers (1-5 years). Be prepared to read this one over and over again with your young one!
