Book Review/Giveaway: Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen. Ends June 12th
Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen by Howard Binkow and Susan F. Cornelison.
About the Book: Imagine how much easier life would be if children listened better. Meet Howard B. Wigglebottom, a curious rabbit who just doesn’t listen. This new illustrated book has been created to help children, ages 3-7, improve their listening skills and pay attention. Educators, parents, and children alike will laugh and learn as Howard B. Wigglebottom learns to listen.
My Review: Last time I talked about Howard B. Wigglebottom he was learning about Sportsmanship. This time Howard is about to learn about Listening.
Howard is always in trouble at school because he doesn’t listen even when told by his teacher during story time to stop bouncing around the room and sit down and be quiet. But Howard doesn’t listen. And because he doesn’t listen Howard was always in trouble. He slipped because he didn’t listen to his friends trying to warn him about the banana peel on the floor. Instead of being still on the playground while playing baseball, Howard would hop around and didn’t keep his eye on the ball.
It all came to a head when in art class; Howard didn’t listen to the teacher about trying to keep the paint on the paper and not on the table. So the teacher asks him to take a time out. While he was doing time out Howard felt so sad, he did not like being alone and in trouble. He made up his mind to be a good listener and received a #1 Listener star.
This is a wonderful and engaging book for children to learn how to become a better listener. The Today’s Lesson at the end of the book teaches children to sit quietly, use both eyes and ears to help with listening, not to interrupt and wait their turn to talk and listening discussion questions. Great illustration which helps tells the story.
I highly recommend this book for every household with children and for classroom teaching.
