Howard is a character any child can relate to. Adult readers will find themselves referring back to him regularly in the course of a day; some will, remember what Howard B. Wigglebottom learned about paying attention! --Committee for Children

This is a great story to teach our kids that it s okay to be different; that they are perfect just the way they are. --Attitude Magazine

This timeless story will help teach self-esteem and self-concept issues to many children. It is a sweet tale about being true to yourself and doing what makes you happy. --National Association of Elementary School Principals

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!

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.

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.

We love Howard B. Wigglebottom! Our 3 1/2 year old son has really tried to be a better listener since reading about Howard, the cute bunny who is able to learn from his mistakes. We can talk about better ways to listen from discussing the excellent artwork, as well.

Format: Hardcover
Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns To Listen by Howard Binkow combines an original and entertaining story with engaging and colorful illustrations from Susan F. Cornelison to provide children 5 through 8 with the tale of Howard Wigglebottom, a young bunny who has poor listening skills. Following Howard through his day at school and the consequences of his continuing failure to listen to his teachers and other authorities, Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns To Listen not only entertains but educates children on what might happen if they decide not to listen, what might happen if they do, and how to best approach good listening. Funny and effective, Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns To Listen is a welcome addition to school and community library picturebook collections, and is especially recommended for all young readers with listening troubles, as well as their parents hoping to find an encouraging and supportive story their children might relate to and learn from.
