Yum Yuck! A Foldout Book of People Sounds

By Julia Durango and Linda Sue Park

Illustrated by Sue Ramá

Charlesbridge Publishing

Hurray! Yupi! It's time to celebrate language!
What sounds do people make to show their feelings? And how are these sounds expressed in different languages? Look at the faces for a hint, sound out the foreign words, then lift the page for the English word.

“This original offering is a delightful addition to the canon of multicultural picture books and a fun read-aloud guessing game.” ~ School Library Journal
