BBC Radio’s Children’s Hour author Carol Odell creates ‘The Noisy Noise’

iBook Review by Jessica Valentine (

“The Noisy Noise” by Carol Odell
With technology continuing to develop non-stop and our children evolving ever so quickly with that technology no explanation is needed when my 5 year old, Sophie, quickly figures out how to use this ibook, “Noisy Noise” by Carol Odell.  The thing she likes the most is selecting an object and hearing the corresponding sound.  With the use of audio learning, tactile learning and visual learning this book is the perfect tool for my little girl who is learning how to read.

It was easy to download from our itunes and my daughter enjoyed touching the screen.  “Do it again!”  she said after hearing the noises.

The only thing I wish is that this book was just a bit longer.  However, it was the perfect introduction of ‘sight’ words that my daughter is learning at her school.

“Noisy Noise” is written by the British writer Carol Odell who began writing for the BBC Radio’s Children’s Hour when she was only a teenager herself.  After moving to Australia Carol has written more than 25 children’s books, plus television scripts for Playschool and Skippy, and for six years she was writer/presenter for the Books and Writing segment of a weekly television arts program for teenagers.

Those with an iPad can use the search box in the iBookstore to search for “noisy noise” and purchase it for only £3.49.
