    Update:
    This is a $1.99 Kindle special today -- I have no idea where the book is now -- I 'think' my older daughter still has it. Honestly -- dozens and dozens of times --we read this book --acted out the poems together........... It was a BIG TIME FAVORITE BOOK in our house when my kids still lived at home. I haven't thought of this book since the 'last' time (years ago too) --when a Goodreads friend brought it up.
    Although a great Kindle deal -- The hardcopy is LOVELY!! (small) --but lovely!! Great to read with your kids!!!


    Another Goodreads friend just posted having read this book....
    She got me excited.

    I read this book dozens and dozens of times --around 20 years ago (a favorite in our house with my daughters and I)

    As a literacy Coach, I am constantly being told about and asked for resources that will address specific components of reading.

    It saddens and frustrates me when awesome books like this one are overlooked while dry/mundane/BORING fluency programs are being passed around and sucked up like pixie sticks at a pre-schoolers birthday party.

    These poems are soooooo cool and interesting and fun. You can not help but to sound great as a readers when performing them with a parner. One of my favorite moments this year was when 2 girls with limited English skills latched onto this book and begged to read it to their classmates before each class session.

    My son asked to read with me, he said remember when I was first learning to read and you would read a page and then I would read a page? and I happened to pick up this book from the library! I love to select award winning books if I don't have any books requested to pick up. We read line beside line and loved this book! what a brilliant idea, the poetry is so beautiful and several I have gone back to read again, you will never see bugs the same again! Great homeschool read for any age, my son is 9 in 4th grade!

    Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices, is a Newbery Medal winning collection of poems written by Paul Fleischman. This whimsical compilation of verses that are designed to be read to two readers simultaneously, tells about the characteristics and activities of several interesting insects. The illustrations by Eric Beddows are beautiful pencil drawings that present the various characters soaring, spinning, and creeping amongst the pages.

    I rated the book with 4 stars because it was a delightful change of pace from the average collection of poetry. The author's creative use of figurative language takes the reader into the world of creeping and crawling creatures through his alliteration, metaphors, similies, and onomatopoeia. In his poetic description of fireflies, he appeals to the reader's sense of sight with words such as flicking, flashing, glimmering, and gleaming. In his poem entitled Whirligig Beetles he appeals to the kinesthetic nature with words such as whirling, weaving, wheeling, and swirling. One of my favorite poems tells the of the cicada's life with these words, whining, whirring, booming, boisterous, joyful noise! I can just hear them now!!

    Paul Fleischman’s poems about the (extra)ordinary lives of various insects throughout the seasons (beginning with spring) are funny, smart, playful, evocative, AND informational. Bonus points: these poems are meant to be read by two voices simultaneously, so grab a friend and enjoy! If the poems are read as intended, you can literally hear the joyful cacophony of the buzzing, chirping grass field.

    Eric Beddows’s humorous and detailed black-and-white pencil illustrations are equally lovely and engaging:

    Paul Fliechman's book Joyful Noise is a collection of poems meant to be read by two voices. The collection of poems focuses on the theme of insects such as digger wasps, honey bees, and fireflies. Each poem is describes the life of the particular insect through creative rhythm. I enjoyed this book. Although I read it in my head, using my imagination to predict how the author envisioned the two voices to read the poems, I found each poem lively. If performed appropriately, I can almost guarantee readers and listeners amusement. This book does not contain poems in the traditional sense, it bring poetry to life, and captivated the readers and listeners. In addition to its creative nature, this book is full of fun and knowledgeable insight. I learned so much about common insects I never knew before, and had fun learning it. I would read this book to my students in a heartbeat. It is an excellent book to make science, nature or any other related topic upbeat and fun. Each poem contains at least one detailed black and white picture of the insect described. Each poem made my imagination run wild, I feel it would be unfair to NOT read this book to my classroom.

    I haven't read these poems since I was in college, and I love them! I am in awe at the cleverness of Fleischman, to write for two voices. You can practically hear both voices in your head as you read them. I also listened to them on CD and that was a great thing, as well. This is some good poetry!
