The old expression, “things are they way they are meant to be” stands true for Animal Sound Mix-up. Chaos would certainly ensue if animals suddenly made different noises than what they always have. Could you imagine the looks on humans faces if this happened? Eyes would bulge and jaws would drop when encountering:

“What if you were at the park and a nearby horse began to bark?”

Amazingly so, chaos does not ensue in animal language, because by the grace of God each animal has their own unique and special voice.

Children’s author, Connie Arnold takes the reader on a fun and thought provoking adventure of “what if” through Animal Sound Mix-up, which will surely have child and adult laughing out loud.
