y separately published work icon Phonobet Canberra : National Library of Australia , 2023 26019831 2023 single work picture book children's

'Come and meet the Phonobet, old Alpha Betty’s twin,

'The set of all the sounds you use when waggling your chin.

'Phonobet is a modern-day, Australian answer to Dr Seuss’s ABC. This very clever rhyming text takes an onomatopoeic romp through the 44 phonemes of Australian (and British) English, comparing sounds to trees, bees, trains, robots, monkeys, pirates and more. The text aligns with primary-school phonics programs and could be used by educators in this field, but is equally successful as a fun read-aloud book for parents of 4- to 6-year-olds.

'Children will enjoy Kim Drane’s bold, colourful and fun-filled illustrations, which pop on the page.

'So, once you know the Phonobet, I’m certain that you’ll find

'A wacky world of wonder words with sounds of every kind,

'The sounds are yours to say and sing and twist and taste and chew.

'And then, what should you do with them? Well, that’s up to you.' (Publication summary)
