Praise for Shout! Shout It Out!

“Denise Fleming turns up children's volume…What is there to shout about? Pages feature bright illustrations of what children this age do know: letters, numbers, colors, animals. This isn't about SAT coaching. It's about being happy sharing your knowledge.” --Chicago Tribune

"Learning to read has never been more fun or easier. ‘READ! Read it again!’ will surely be the refrain heard anywhere this book is shared.” --BookPage

“Fleming’s signature style—brightly colored mixed-media artwork—is well suited to the exuberant text…this is sure to become a staple for concept themed story hours.”--Booklist

“Filled with vibrant colors and patterns, Fleming’s illustrations are peopled with a multicultural cast of rosy-cheeked, wide-eyed preschoolers with huge mouths open wide to shout. Created by pulp painting, which is a method of making paper by pouring colored fibers through stencils, here complemented by paper collage and a variety of drawing media, the artwork begs return examination.”--Kirkus Reviews

“Grownups, get your earplugs ready; story time is about to get loud.”--Horn Book Magazine

“This book will help give confidence to reticent children and add liveliness to storytimes. It makes a great companion to Fleming’s The Everything Book (Holt, 2000) and will be requested time and again.”--School Library Journal

“Fleming brings a new dimension to her signature pulp-painting technique, using swatches of patterned paper collage and marker accents on her figures...Children just learning their colors, animals, and ABCs will be invigorated, and those who have already mastered these basics will still enjoy the top-of-their-lungs review—as well as Mouse's asides along the way.”--Publishers Weekly
