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!

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.
I recommend this book for kids 4-8
