March is Listening Awareness Month! What better way to teach kids about listening than with a fun picture book? The Listeners Unite Bookshop has a whole section on listening books for kids and families with lots of great listening-themed picture books! (:3
Click here to find some great children's books about listening! This bookstore has classsics, from "Horton Hears a Who!" and "Free to Be You and Me" to "Planting Seeds" and "A Handful of Quiet" by Thich Nhat Hanh and "The Interrupting Chicken"! (You'll also find some great books about listening to kids in that same section!)
You can find lots of picture books about listening in my store, too. Hey! Is that "The Interrupting Chicken" again?? Why does that book keep popping up? It pops up even when I'm searching for other things! Sheesh!! That chicken drives me crazy!!! (:3
Hmmm... Now where was I?
Well, I guess that's it for now. I'll just finish by sharing a few photos from last year'sInternational Listening Association convention. Here I am with my friend, Marva Shand McIntoshand here's a photo Marva took of me with my "LISTEN" headband!
Marva started "I Love to Listen Day," another special time to celebrate listening. (I Love to Listen Day is on May 16!)
That's all for now. Thanks for listening! You guys are the BEST!
