Joyful Noise

Written to be read aloud by two voices, sometimes alternating, sometimes simultaneous -- here is a recording of irresistible poems that celebrate the insect world, from the short life of the mayfly to the love song of the book louse. Funny, sad, loud and quiet, each of these poems resounds with a booming, boisterous, joyful noise. Winner of the 1989 Newbery Medal.

I Am Pheonix

I Am Phoenix is an exultant celebration of the sounds and essence of the bird world. A companion to Joyful Noise, written to be spoken aloud by two voices and masterfully performed by Lloyd and Twomey, these poems perfectly capture the beauty of birds in their singing, soaring and rejoicing.

Performed by John Bedford and Anne Twomey

Quotes & Awards

  • “As these titles suggest, Fleischman’s poetry collections are designed to be read aloud by more than one person. Hughes and Snively, with some assistance from several other performers, rise to the occasion, giving Fleischman’s words the cheerful musicality the author intended.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Great read aloud poetry, especially for younger students who enjoy rhyme and a bit of nonsense.”

    School Library Journal

  • A Newbery Medal Winner (Joyful Noise)
  • An ALA Notable Book for Children (Joyful Noise)
