So how do we kerplink-kerplank or make onomatopoeia a part of our children’s lives?
Read onomatopoeia books
Children enjoy hearing stories that have a lot of sounds, that’s why Dr. Seuss books are such big hits. With “Mr. Brown Can Moo”, you can moo, bzzz, bam bam bam. In The Little Golden Book “I Can Fly,” you can pop, pop, pop like a rabbit and crunch crunch crunch as you eat your lunch.
Our other favorites are Jonathan London’s Froggy books, in which Froggy goes flop, flop, flop as he walks, and bumps his head with a, well, bump!
