Doc McStuffins: Loud Louie Book Review

Title: Doc McStuffins: Loud Louie
Author: Sheila Sweeney Higginson
Genre: Picture Book
Reading Level: Ages 3-5
Multicultural: Main character is African American

The book is about Doc McStuffins rediscovering her old toy cell phone and it talking too loudly.  At first it appears to be due to a sticker stuck on the volume button, but even after it is removed the toy has trouble using its indoor voice.  They play a game of telephone to help it learn to whisper and use the appropriate noise level.  The last page also has some additional tips about using your inside voice and being a good listener.

This book tells the same story as the "Loud Louie" episode of the Disney Junior Doc McStuffins TV show.  Kids familiar with the show may enjoy the familiarity.  The picture reading feature that uses images in place of certain words in the sentences also helps make this a good book for introducing Doc McStuffins fans to reading.
