Format: Hardcover
Howard B. Wigglebottom Listens to His Heart is a children's picturebook that embodies several invaluable messages for young people. When young rabbit Howard B. Wigglebottom is mocked by his peers for dancing, he decides he will never dance again. But when he confides his sadness to his grandfather, his grandfather reminds him that he comes from a long line of Wigglebottoms who love to dance. Howard's grandfather teaches him that he should dance because it's fun and he loves it first and foremost! A list of suggestions for lessons or reflection and the end of the book go over the central themes of feeling something one's heart, the value of confiding in a trusted older person, issues that can affect self-esteem, the value of trying something different for the fun of it, and the benefit of connecting with one's roots and family legacy. Perhaps the most important message is to "Be proud of who you are!" Highly recommended for public library collections as well as for children's bookshelves.

Format: Hardcover
Howard really loved to dance
He'd shimmy and he'd jiggle
Every time he got the chance
He's do his little wiggle

But one day the kids at school
Made jokes as children will
Ashamed of being made a fool
He felt his ego chill

He wanted to be debonair
He wanted to belong
Alas, alack, to his despair
Things kept on going wrong

This book shows that even though
Things may not look too bright
A friend can be the one to show
You how to make things right

Do your best, hold your head high
Be proud, at least you've tried
In time you'll find the reason why
You feel so good inside

This is a follow up to the book Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen, and deals with an issue that affects every child at one time or another. Told in simple language with beautiful illustrations, this is a must read for any child experiencing a period of self-doubt. Recommended for ages 7 and up.

Shared this book with children at our local school and they fell in love with Howard B. Wigglebottom. They were quite taken with the message the book conveys. Lots of discussion followed.

Thanks, Howard B.

This book is an excellent classroom resource for discussing who you are and not trying to be anyone else. It's a great way to define "unique" and not "copycat".

I shared this story with several classrooms of 1st graders. My children enjoyed the colorful animal friends. And, of course, "Wigglebottom" evoked chuckles! During follow up discussion, the children shared their feelings about fitting in and standing out! We then shared the joy of being different and each having special talents. The children enjoyed remembering their grandparents as well. A good lesson/story for K-2. I enjoyed it as much as the children.
