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!

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.

This is a cute book but I apparently had higher hopes :) it's about a bunny in which every time he doesn't listen, something 'unfortunate' happens. While it's a good story, not sure my 4yo fully gets the equation. Or she does and she's just playing me. Cure illustrations.

This is the first Howard B. Wigglebottom book that I have had the opportunity to view. There are currently 10 titles available in this series (#10 is available Jan. 2011) with this playful bunny that helps teach youngsters social skills. The 11th title is tentatively to be released the early part of 2012, Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns About Courage and Overcoming Fears.

Howard B. Wigglebottom is a cute, energetic, little bunny that goes through his day, not listening to anyone, and getting into a heap of trouble. Howard decides one day that he should try very hard to be the best listener he can be. He receives a reward for his efforts from his teacher. The recognition makes him strive even more to be a good listener at school and at home.

I think this is a great book for young children. My daughters enjoyed watching how the events of this little bunny played out through the book and questioned why they happened to Howard - because he wasn't listening. In the back, there is a section with "Today's Lesson: How To Be a Better Listener" and you can print the PDF of this as a poster for free at [...]. There are also many potential discussion questions pertaining to listening for parents or teachers to use with children included in the book.

So adorable! The approach is not what you expect, and the children listen to it just because of the name, Wigglebottom. I work with children as mobile therapist, and the product is great to appeal to the need to evaluate the wiggles and listening!

Helps energetic little one's identify with their need for constant movement. Despite their inability to sit still they need to try their best to be still and listen. Doesn't solve the problem but lets them know they are not alone with the problem.

Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen by Howard Binkow is a terrific book to teach kids the importance of listening. My students thought it was very funny and understood why things were better for Howard when he did listen.

I recommend this book for kids 4-8
