Until the new teacher came to the school, then to find that the teacher was a drama/music teacher recognising the talents that Lily has. The teacher uses the negativity of Lily being loud and used that to bring out the best in her. The flow of the story is full of tones and pace that it is a book that I look forward to reading this book many times in my classes to come. An awesome story line and an exciting little book that I think many children will enjoy this greatly in the future.

    Lily Hippo was way too loud! Finally when a new teacher comes to her school she finds a place to use her loudness. This could be a good book to use when talking about loudness and when there is a time for it. Also would be good to relate text to self.

    This book was really funny! The Hippo was being too loud and everyone was saying she was too loud. when she was in school also thought she was loud. The best part of the story was when she went to the play and did her best, everyone LOVED it!

Miss Loopiola Allows Lily t o be loud in the class, and Lily loves it. Miss Loopiola loves her being loud to and she gets a lead part in a play, and everyone loves it. I believe that the plot of the story was good in this book. There was a sequence of events that occurred throughout the book. The story started off with a problem, which was Lily being too loud, and ending with a solution of her being able to be loud and everyone loved it. The main character lily played the roll of self verses others in the conflict in the story. The age range for this book is from nursery, to primary. Nursery ages can enjoy the book as it is being read to them. I believe this book is also relatable to children. I also say primary because this is a good starter book for children learning to read. The artistic elements of the story are very age appropriate and good for this style of writing. The story is has few words and many pictures in sequential order. In this book it also allows the children to use their imagination, showing pictures with no words. This book also has lots of lines that create the shapes and separation of characters and objects, but not showing much texture story also consists of different colors, but the colors are dual and not very bright. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to start reading to their children early and also those with beginning readers. The book was very entertaining and relatable for me. I would give this book a 4 star rating. I gave it a four star rating and not a five because I believe that it could use more bright colors like the colors on the cover.

    Summary - This story is about a lively elephant named Lily. Lily is different than everyone else. She is very loud and is constantly being told by her family and friends to be quiet. She often gets in trouble for her loudness. That all changed though when Miss Loopiola showed up. This new teacher at Lily’s school embraced Lily’s loudness and encourage her to use it by joining the school play. Everyone constantly telling Lily to be quiet almost changed who she was. All it took for Lily to embrace Summary - This story is about a lively elephant named Lily. Lily is different than everyone else. She is very loud and is constantly being told by her family and friends to be quiet. She often gets in trouble for her loudness. That all changed though when Miss Loopiola showed up. This new teacher at Lily’s school embraced Lily’s loudness and encourage her to use it by joining the school play. Everyone constantly telling Lily to be quiet almost changed who she was. All it took for Lily to embrace who she was, was on person believing in her and accepting her for all she was. Theme - Everyone is different and every person has their own talents. There’s nothing wrong with being different and there is always a way you can use your talents to express yourself. You can't change who you are to please someone else. Rating - 5 out of 5 stars Personal Response - I was always the tallest when I was young and I felt like an outcast like Lily. I soon used my height to play volleyball and help win many games. This story really helps to express to children that it is okay to be different and there is always a purpose for their gifts. Why I recommend this book - I loved this book because it had few words but great illustrations. The illustrations really showed Lily’s emotions of sadness and then acceptance. This book is a great way to get children to understand the concept of uniqueness. This book could also be a great tool to use when talking about bullying. Lily was different and often people are made fun of for that. This book showed her overcoming her shame and embracing herself which every child should learn to do.

    This is a story of a hippo, Lily, who does everything very loudly. Her loudness wakes the baby and gets her friends in trouble at school.

People around her are upset, until a new teacher comes to Lily’s school and ask her to be in a school play where she can use her special talent. This is a great book for teaching quiet and loud voices. The text is simple enough for the kids to understand and the content is rich with teaching opportunities. While reading the book, the teacher can talk about others’ feelings and perspectives-how people feel about loud voices, and consequences of actions—what will happen if we speak too loud sometimes. Most importantly, the discussion about loud voices is not biased. It doesn’t label loud voice as an all time inappropriate thing to do, but tells the kids that whether to use loud voices depends on the specific situation. There are places and times that we’ll need loud voices. While reading the book, teacher might use extremely quiet and loud voices to show the kids the strong contract of these two words. They can also add quiet and loud toys/materials for children with special needs to manipulate and have a better understanding of loud and quiet. This book might be put on a bookshelf for literacy-loud and quiet, social-emotional-understanding others’ feelings, music, and social studies.

Her new teacher introduces her and talks to her about the play that will be coming up and immediately that is something that interests Lily. She is very grateful for this new teacher to explain and have her let loose. I really like this book because it really shows and tells how even though when animals and people are loud that they can still be liked and loved and that there is a place for everyone. It really makes me think of those who got left out in my class from high school. It just makes me take a step back and realize what kind of person I really want to be.

    No matter how hard she tries to be quiet, poor Lily Hippo is too loud. She wakes her baby sister, prevents her dad from thinking, and "makes more noise than a heard of elephants" according to her big brother. Even her best friends complain she is too loud. However, Lily's tendency to be loud is embraced by all when she performs in the school play.

This book is great for teaching a number of different concepts: 1) what it means to be loud, 2) there is a time and a place for certain behaviors, and 3) how can we respond when someone around us is behaving inappropriately? Children can take turns acting out what it means to be loud and quiet, and can talk about appropriate contexts for being quiet and loud. Children who are not yet able to discuss these topics may participate by identifying and/or labeling the different animals in the story.

    I love the concept of this book. Lily is loud and is always being told to quiet down, until she finds her calling. The moral behind this story is that even though something a person is good at may be a hindrance to some people, it can be a pleasure to others. Lily had the knack for drama and once she found something she did well her self-esteem began to rise. This book would be good to get children to relate the book to an experience in their life. The illustrations in this book are colorful and I love the concept of this book. Lily is loud and is always being told to quiet down, until she finds her calling.

    Too loud Lily is a good book for a teacher with the awkward kid in class. Maybe they can't sit still or do anything gracefully. It's also good for the other students to read to learn patience and acceptence. Everyone has his or her own set of talents and skills, and they don't always look alike. Sometimes they don't even look inviting. However, as teachers we must decide how to put those students' strenghts into action. I would read this to K-2.

    Lily is a fun-loving, little pig who loses a lot of her spunk when she is constantly told to quiet down. Lily soon finds a niche in her school's drama program that allows her to be as loud as she wants. This story would be a great tool to use when teaching children the appropriate times and places for certain behaviors, e.g., using our outside voices. Lily teaches us all that everyone has a place in this world, no matter how loud or quiet they might be!

    This book was a good read because at the beginning of the story everyone told Lily she was too loud. Lily always tried to be more quiet to please everyone but she could never do so. Lily's friends and family always told her she was too loud. She got a new teacher that let her be as loud as she could be and she loved her. She loved her new teacher because she let her be loud and some times she said she still was not loud enough.

    This book is about a hippo who loves to be loud. She goes through many troubles throughout her homelife and school because she is always loud. However, things all changed and turned around for Lily when she entered into the school play. I liked this book because it shows kids to accept who you are and to honor the talents you have.

    This is cute story about a Hippo named Lily who couldn't find her place because she was so loud. She finally found her calling in acting and found a place to belong. This is a great book to show children how we all have different talents and characteristics, but we are all one in the same. This story would be cute for a younger crowd of children.

    Some cute pictures and the story is alright, but I'm not sure what we were supposed to get out of it: There is a time and a place to be loud? Weaknesses can be strengths in the right circumstances? Teachers are more supportive than family? Or maybe it's JUST a story that loud kids can relate to--you'd think I'd be able to relate then--it just didn't strike any resonate chords.

    Lily is too loud. That is what she has always been told. Then Lily gets a new teacher who embraces her loudness. Lily is fortunate that someone understands her. This story teaches students in first or second grade to be who they are. They should not be afraid to incorporate who they are in their everyday activities and Lily reminds readers of that.

    Lily is just too loud! In this story about a hippo who cannot seem to keep quiet, Lily starts out feeling like she does not fit in. After meeting the equally loud drama teacher who encourages Lily to be louder and louder on stage, Lily finds something that she is good at doing, without having to be quiet. A great book that will reach out to children who don't feel accepted. Lily is just too loud!

    This book is good for those children who need an outlet. Some children just need some direction and encouragement. Lily will help show children that they can do great things too.
