Listening-Themed Picture Books for Kids - By Little Bear

What better way to teach kids about listening than with a fun picture book? 

Last year I posted about some great listening books, and I think those same ones are worth repeating since we have so many new friends checking in since 








Oh, no! There's the"Interrupting Chicken" cutting in again! Some chickens never learn!! Sheesh!! Where was I?

I'll repeat some of the books I listed last year since we have so many new friends checking in since then (and some readers might have been distracted by the chicken)!

I think one of the greatest listeners in storybook history is Horton from "Horton Hears a Who!"

(He's also featured in a new book since my last post, "Horton and the Kwuggerbug and more Lost Stories")! 

Here are some others you might like...

"Planting Seeds" and "A Handful of Quiet" by Thich Nhat Hanh...

What great listening books do you love? Share them  and 

                                   Geez!! That chicken just interrupting again! Such foul manners! (Or would that be fowl manners?) Oh, well.

Share your favorite listening-themed picture books here or on my Facebook and Twitter pages! I'll be listening!

Well, I guess that's it for now. I'll just finish by sharing a few photos from last year's International Listening Association convention.

Here's a photo of me with my friend, Marva Shand McIntosh and a photo Marva took of me with my "LISTEN" headband!

That's all for now. Thanks for listening, friends!
