The story talks about the different kind of noises we get to hear in our everyday lives. At school the noise of the children playing, or the sound of fireworks in the sky, the noise while playing cricket on the street, or the sound of a cat fight. The sound of funfair rides or the noise of the people taking the rides and the sound of winning is the sound of clapping, the sound of circus performers whistling. The sound of the dhol (drum) being played at a gathering, or the sound of people making noise in a crowd, the sound of the band playing in a parade or of the music a wedding. Noise in shops, noise in the market, and the sounds of buying and selling, the sounds of the vegetable sellers and cart drivers, the sound of fish at the market and the noise of the customers, the noise of the traffic and the sound of the bus conductor, the noise of the train moving on the rail track, the noise in a factory, the noise in a workshop or the noise of the truck moving in the field. The noise of rain in a storm, the sound of clouds grumbling, lightning striking, the noise of the harsh winds blowing, the sound of the waves of the sea bumping into eachother. In the early morning there’s the sound of crows cawing, the noise in daylight and the noise of snoring at night.
For ages 6 and up.
