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 bursts 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.
