About So Loud!:

So Loud book cover. An illustration of a girl having upside down with her hands above her head reaching towards the title which is in bold in a speech bubble near the tips of her hair. She is wearing long black sleeves and a yellow vest with stars and a yellow bow in her black hair. Her skin is light pink.

A fun and touching debut that explores the power of finding your voice.

Rudābeh (Rudy for short) loves to talk, sing, jump and shout. There's just one problem: the adults in her life are always telling her that she is SO LOUD. When her grandmother (Māmān Bozorg) visits from Iran for the first time, Rudy worries that she might be too loud for her. But as she tries to be quieter, Rudy starts to feel less and less like herself. Listening closely to the many sounds in her world--from husky howls and streetcar chimes to Māmān Bozorg's roaring sneezes--Rudy tries to figure out the full range of her own voice, discovering along the way the joy in being loud.

With exuberant illustrations by Shiva Delsooz, this charming story will resonate with readers who love to make noise and are still learning where and when to take up space.
