Man, Dr. Seuss sure did write a lot of children’s books!  Luckily, I was able to read so many of his books when I was little and they were always such a joy to read through!  But when I was little, some of his books managed to make it to these obscure little videos that I used to watch a lot and one of those books that I had watched on these videos was “Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?”  I still cannot believe that I have not written a review for this book yet, but now I am!

“Oh, the wonderful things Mr. Brown can do!”

Mr. Brown can make sounds out of anything.  Like he can sound like a cow by going, “MOO! MOO!” And he can also sound like a bee by going “BUZZ! BUZZ”

Can you make various sounds like Mr. Brown can?

Oh man!  I just loved how Dr. Seuss is able to make a book about sounds be so creative and fun to read!  When I read this book as a child, I always had fun repeating the various sounds that Mr. Brown made, such as making buzzing sounds like a bee, making popping noises like a cork, making sounds like “DIBBLE DIBBLE DOPP DOPP” to represent the sound of rain falling and making noises like thunder and lightning.  Dr. Seuss’ artwork is as creative as ever as Mr. Brown is mostly clad in a brown outfit which goes well with his name.  I also loved seeing his facial expressions whenever he was making sounds, like having his eyes squint whenever he is making sounds that are hard to do, like a hippopotamus chew gum!

Overall, “Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?” is a fantastic book for anyone who loves reading about sounds and loves reading Dr. Seuss books in general!  I would recommend this book to children ages three and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.
