Beautiful, full-color illustrations and fun, catchy rhymes encourage children to develop attentive listening skills

Listening is an essential life skill that helps children achieve success at school, follow safety rules and show others that they care about them. In a world filled with distractions, being a “good listener” has become more difficult than ever. The playful rhymes of Yes, I Can Listen! encourage children to appreciate the rewards of attentive listening. With sweet characters, varied type faces, and vivid colors, this picture book introduces a variety of listening scenarios. Each two-page spread let children imagine how they might listen in a number of common situations. Yes, I Can Listen! concludes with a page of suggestions for parents who wish to explore more activities that encourage and develop their children's listening skills.
