This one is a joy to read aloud. Paul Rand and his wife, Ann, wrote this book for their daughter, Catherine, to explain the interplay of sound and color. Rand's distinctive paper-cut illustrations of bold shapes and burts of color beautifully complement Ann's rhythmic text, encouraging children to listen and repeat noises they hear every day: the "blop" of a raindrop, the "wham!" of a shutting door, the whisper of the wind in the trees, and the "crunch crunch" of buttered toast.

Ann Rand (1918--2012) trained as an architect and is the author of several children's books.

Paul Rand (1914--1996) was one of the most influential American graphic designers of the twentieth century.
