Knowing how to listen is essential to learning, growing, and getting along with others. This gentle, encouraging book introduces and explains what listening means, why it’s important, and how to listen well. Realistic examples and inviting full-color illustrations bring the concepts to life. The focus throughout is on the positive results of being a good listener. In both English and Spanish, this book also includes a special section for adults, with ways to reinforce the skills being taught, questions to invite lively discussion, and listening games to play.
