I’ve come across a very interesting line of books that promotes effective listening, communication, and and overall sense of inner peace for children. They are put out by a non-profit organization called We Do Listen, and they star a funny bunny named Howard B. Wigglebottom. In each story, Howard learns some very important lessons, and in the process helps your kids learn them, as well!
We have been reading Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen. The title is pretty self-explanatory! What I especially like about this book is that at the end of the story, there is a review section that goes over some basic strategies for developing your listening skills. There is also a section at the end that gives parents questions that can be asked along with every page in the book. That really helps expand the opportunities for learning and discussion! I thought that was a great idea and was really pleased to see it.
We Do Listenhas a wonderful assortment of books for various life lessons. They also have animated versions of their books that are ABSOLUTELY FREE on their website! And they have songs and other activities. Truly, this website is an excellent resource for parents and kids, and I want to strongly encourage you to check it out!
Buy it!: Howard B. Wigglebottom books are available at HUGE discounts right now. The book we reviewed is marked down to $6.00, and you can purchase all 10 of their books for just $50.00. What a steal!!!
