Who’s That Roaring?

Kingfisher. Kingfisher, $5.99 (14p) ISBN 978-0-7534-6970-5
Seven animals show off their sounds in this photographic board book. The titular question is answered on the first spread: “I am a lion. I have sharp teeth and a shaggy mane.” Two photos of the lion appear against a neon green backdrop, and a dotted line points out the aforementioned mane. Bees, sheep, and wolves are also featured, among other creatures; in a particularly fun detail, the animal sounds are shown emanating like trumpet blasts from the animals’ mouths. The crisp photos, bright colors, and basic tidbits should please animal lovers. Simultaneously available: Who’s That Jumping? Ages 2–5. (Apr.)
