About the Author

Helen Borten: Helen Borten was born in Philadelphia, PA in 1930. She attended the Philadelphia Museum College of Art and produced the main body of her well-loved Children's picture book illustrations in the 1960's.


[...] the connection of the senses does work very well poetically, and this text accompanied by the author's stylized illustrations should limber up even the most sluggish imaginations.
--Kirkus Reviews

"Originally published in 1959, Ms. Borten's beautiful, vintage artwork adds texture to the basics: lines, color, and shape, whether it's by adding swirls to an ocean full of fish or wispy, thin spider webs above the thick bars of a lion's cage. Ms. Borten artwork and evocative text inspires children to see the world around them "as a great big painting, full of lines and shapes and colors, to look at and enjoy". This is a great book to read out loud, then talk about the different sounds and feelings kids associate with them."
--Books for Kids "the book is beautiful, the text is lovely--Borten's technique is to represent sound--or rather the feeling of sound (which is to say, the feeling of the feeling of sound) through language and art."
--Biblioklept "Do You Hear What I Hear? is a lovely introduction to sounds and how they intertwine so readily with emotions. Borten's poetic, appropriately rhythmic text, paired with the playful, energetic, color-soaked illustrations are just perfect for making the abstract nature of music nearly tangible."
--Avid Bookshop
