This book, written by a speech-language pathologist and illustrated by artist and speech/language pathologist Jenny Loehr, is a delightfully humorous book that children will beg to have read to them night after night. It is a great book for teaching early literacy because it contains many of the components recommended by early literacy specialists; i.e. dialogue set in bubbles for print awareness, rhyming, colorful pictures, repetition and predictability, counting, and interactive dialogue for language development. It is a good book for introducing all the fairy tales with the count of three. The book has included black/white images for children to color. Purchasers are given permission to copy. A free activity 37 page activity booklet is included on this website. EEK! I Hear a Squeak was 2008 Award Recepient, Children’s Picture Book, Humor.
