An engaging book that teaches good listening skills Nov. 2 2010
By Z Hayes - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My five-and-a-half year old daughter tends to get easily distracted and does not possess the best listening skills, so after reading some glowing reviews of this book here, I decided to purchase it. I have to say that I was pleased with the contents and my daughter actually learned good listening skills from the story of squirmy bunny, Howard B. Wigglebottom!

The story unfolds in a series of humorous illustrations depicting the distracted Howard, who can't seem to focus on one thing at a time and is always distracted. His antics earn him the displeasure of his teacher, and cause his friends to become annoyed and frustrated. When Howard finds himself all alone, he comes to the realization that he needs to change. When my daughter read the part where Howard is feeling sorry for himself, she became very concerned for Howard, and after we came to the end of the story, she told me, "Mom, Howard learned to listen. So can I!" This book has since become a frequently requested book at bedtime, and my daughter even told me that she thinks reading this book over and over will be good for her listening skills:) It is an engaging book, and the illustrations go a long way to showing young children how important it is to be respectful of others, pay attention, and listen when needed. Highly recommended!

Won't fall on deaf ears March 29 2007
By Amanda Richards - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you have little boys or girls

You'll know at times it's tough

To make them listen when you speak

About manners and stuff

Your kids will love to read about

This naughty little rabbit

Howard was a problem `til

He got the listening habit

Always in trouble when at school

He hadn't any friends

But when he learns to listen - well

You'll love the way it ends

This is a clever, helpful book

To read through with your tot

Especially from three and up

When kids learn such a lot

With guides and lessons at the back

This book meets expectations

A quick and easy learning tool

With super illustrations

Review from Books That Heal Kids March 25 2010
By Books That Heal Kids - Published on
Format: Hardcover
It is very difficult to find engaging and fun books that teach school skills. At least that has been my experience. Howard B Wigglebottom Learns to Listen is perfect for preschool - 1st grade. It is engaging and an excellent tool to teach listening skills. You can have a lot of fun with this book by using ideas from the author's website We Do Listen. I wish there were more books on the market like this to help teach listening to young children. If you are looking for more ways to teach school skills, get this on your bookshelf.

My Son Loved It! April 19 2006
By John Halperin - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book for my 4 year old son and he LOVED it. We can now reference the book when he has trouble listening...."is that how Howard Wigglebottom listens??". A great book for both parents and children. I highly recommend it.

Choosing to listen April 2 2012
By Nanny - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An entertaining book to help children remember the value of good listening. However, for children with ADHD or similar problems, good listening isn't always a choice they can make so this book might make them feel unnecessarily guilty about their short-comings. See my review of 'The Worst Day of My Life Ever!' by Julia Cook.
