Here’s humorous proof of just how fun it is to observe with your ears. A whimsical introduction to pitch and volume, this full-colour, illustrated story book practically begs young scientists to read aloud. And why not? It’s the best way to compare the differences among a telephone’s high ring, a cow’s low moo, a fire truck’s loud clang and a flying string band’s plinkety plink plunk. Sounds Are High, Sounds Are Low is ideal for beginning readers and hilarious practice for future sound effects pros.

Sounds Are High, Sounds Are Low is part of the I Wonder Why book series, written to ignite the curiosity of children in years F–6 while encouraging them to become avid readers.

The I Wonder Why series is a set of science books created specifically for young learners who are in their first years of school. The content for each book was chosen to be appropriate for youngsters who are beginning to construct knowledge of the world around them. These youngsters ask questions. They want to know about things. They are more curious than they will be when they are a decade older. Research shows that science is students’ favourite subject when they enter school for the first time.

These books explore the marvels of light, colour, machines, sound and other phenomena related to physical science. Included in each volume is a Parent/Teacher Handbook with coordinating activities. The I Wonder Why series is written by an award-winning science educator. After completing a science activity, rereading or referring back to the book and talking about connections with the activity can be a deepening experience that stabilises the learning as a long-term memory.
