Roar!: A Noisy Counting Book Reviews

    Summary: A lion cub's roar frightens away other colorful animals, from one red monkey to eight brown gazelles, that he wants to come play with him--until he encounters nine other lion cubs. Not crazy about this book because it is awkward in its flow. I wish the word ROAR was used as the animal sound instead of as a verb. I wanted to really roar when I said the word (it is in caps) but it didn't fit right in the sentence. I would want to encourage the kids to roar with me with this book but it just doesn't work with the way the text is. I would use this with a story time if I was stuck finding a book for a theme. "ROARS the little lion cub. Who will play with me?1 red monkey rushes up a tree. Friendly little lion cub feels a little sad. Plods down the pathway - pad, pad, pad. He ROARS by the lake, "Will you walk with me today?2 pink flamingos flap and fly away." Story Time themes: counting, safari animals, lions, colors Animals counted: red monkey, pink flamingo, orange warthogs, blue lizards, gray hippos, green crocodiles, black rhinos, brown gazelles,

    Text: 3 starsIllustrations: 4 starsCounting picture book tells the story of a lion cub looking for animal friends on the African plains. Rhyming text counts forward from 1 to 10. Also incorporates a different color for each number and animal. Meter feels off in some places. I find it difficult to believe that a herd of hippos, a herd of rhinos, and especially a clump of alligators, are afraid of a baby lion. Lovely illustrations.

    This roaringly fun counting book is great for preschool or toddler storytimes.

    This would be a great book for children who are fans of Disney's "The Lion King". It follows the story of a young lion who just wants to have a friend or two to play with, while also teaching kids how to count.

    Roar! A Noisy Counting Book follows a little noisy lion cub as he looks for someone to play with him on the busy African savannah. Each time he comes upon a group of possible playmates, they quickly make themselves scarce once they hear his noisy roars. Each time he meets a group of animals their numbers go up, until he finally finds a group of 9 lion cubs roaring like him, and he makes ten. Various African animals are introduced in this book and the illustrations of each are slightly cartoonish and animated looking while still remaining descriptively lifelike. The story itself has a bouncy, rhyming flow that works well read-aloud and will appeal to young audiences. Children will enjoy roaring with the lion cub and find the humor in each group of animals running away as the clueless little lion looks on. With its repetitive and predictable “roaring” it works well for audience participation when read-aloud and would make a fun and entertaining storytime pick for older toddlers and preschoolers.

    This story is about a little lion cub who is just looking for someone to play with him. As he goes around asking all the animals they all run away from him because he is a lion and he is roaring. The story is written in a poem style so as you go through it everything is rhyming. It also has to do with counting. As the lion is trying to make friends we count how many animals there are. I feel this story is a fun way for young readers to learn how to count. The problem I saw with this story is that it can be construed that you aren't supposed to play with people who aren't like you. I get its all just animals running around and in nature you don't often see predator and prey being friends but a child might take it that they can't hangout with someone because they are different.

    My five-year-old son picked this book out from our local library last week. The illustrations are adorable. Um, that's about it. My son loves numbers and counting books. He lost interest by the 3. I read the 4 verse and then skipped to nine, but it was too late. He didn't really care by then. ROAR is such a great title, but it is used in the text in a way that makes it awkward for the reader to roar. That might have helped regain a kid's attention. Books in rhyme are really hard to write well. Books in rhyme are really hard to read out loud if they are not written well.

    Rabbit loves any book that has "noisy" in the title; this book was waiting for us at my parent's house in FL when we went for a visit earlier this month(my folks found it at their local library). ROAR was a great hit! The sweet story about a lion cub looking for playmates is punctuated by plenty of opportunities to be noisy, counting form one to ten. The illustrations are wonderful and include many of our favorite animals(ie: flamingos, crocodiles, monkeys, hippos, and of course lions!). We might have to look for this book to include in our permanent collection!

    Counting 2 This book is good for teaching about feelings while learning to count. I liked how many animals this book showed. I could talk about hierarchy in the animal kingdom. I liked when be found more lions at the end.Interest LevelGrades K - 2Reading LevelGrade level Equivalent: 2.2Lexile® Measure: Not AvailableDRA: 20Guided Reading: LType of Book: Counting and Number BookNominationBuckaroo Book Award Nominee (Wyoming, 2003)

    Roar is a great take on the counting book format. Here a little lion cub searches for playmates that are all frightened by his roar until he comes across a pride of nine other cubs. The illustrations are excellent, the text is simple enough, and the story gives more to entertain than many counting books.

    This is a simple counting book that would entertain children that enjoy animals. Unfortunately, parts of it are a bit wordy, and I had trouble suspending disbelief that certain animal groups would be scared of a lion cub, unless his mom and dad were close by. The pictures were cute and realistic. Some of the rhyme scheme is forced, but kids might not notice that.

    This book would be a great introduction to counting in Kindergarten! It a simple counting book that has a cute spin on it and relates to animals. This could also be a great book for learning new vocabulary!

    I love this book! The way the author wrote the book, each page rhymes and has a "beat" to it. It flows together very well. I also think that the illustrations are cute and colorful! This is a good book for working with children on counting rote!

    Good for counting and more. Used it to practice our Spanish animal names and colors and counting too. It's fun for the kids to roar like the little lion cub, and funny for the parents. Why are those animals running away? :)

    This fun book has the opportunity to use growly voices, rhyming, and counting all at the same time! Will little lion cub ever find someone to play with? He's certainly going to keep trying until he does! Berry liked all the ROARING in this book, and I enjoyed the rhymes!

    This is an awesome storytime book, but if you want the kids to help you with the "ROARing," it's really important to have good control over the group. I've used with great success before, but today the kids were not up to the roaring.

    This is the type of counting book that is easy to forget its a counting book. The lion cub keeps scaring away potential friends by roaring. Review of savanna animals.

    This is a cute counting book that I use early in the kindergarten year for math. It is a good book for young children to "read" on their own too. I would suggest this book for preschoolers mostly.

    This book has nice colorful pictures. It could be used for young children (pre-k - 1st grade) to help them count and identify animals.

    This is one of our very favorite counting books. I will give a warning though: by the time I'm doing "reading" this book, my throat hurts from all the "roaring".

    I must admit, I picked this one up because it was about a lion. But it turned out to be pretty darn adorable.
