Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- In this revised edition of the 1961 title, a father and child take a walk together and listen to the sounds around them. The text has been streamlined and updated, and Aliki has completely replaced her previous black-and-white sketches with colorful, lively illustrations of multiethnic people in contemporary settings. The writing is concise and to the point without being choppy, and the overall effect is unhurried and relaxed. Young readers (or listeners) will enjoy the book, both as a story and as a jumping-off point for their own walks. --Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, Buffalo, NY
Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My name is Lizbeth. I am a third grader in Salton City, CA. This book is about a little girl that was walking and then heard noises. She paid attention to the noises. I felt fantastic about this book. I learned that when you're walking, you can hear noises. I loved the part when the little girl splashed water. She is a great girl. I hope you buy it!

When my children were preschool age, they loved this book, and it still brings fond memories and smiles five years later. There is so much entertainment value in the various sounds, like the "zoooooooooom" of the lawnmower or "trring trring" of the bicycle bell. Your children will love hearing your version of these sounds, as well as their own. My girls and I took many "listening walks," inspired by this wonderful book.

A simple idea, to listen. But we forget the magic that there is in "first times". Do you remember the first time you heard a cricket sing? Probably not, but after you read this book, it won't matter - you will feel like every time you hear a cricket, and many other sounds in your world, its your first time again.
An invaluable lesson for children growing up with MTV, the Internet, billboards, and multimedia lessons in school. This book helps you and your child to "unplug" and relax long enough to really hear the world around you.

I have enjoyed reading this book to young children as they join along in reading by making the sounds of the items outside that the little girl hears when she goes on a walk with her dad and dog. The way some of the words are printed on the pages add to the overall enjoyment of reading.

Back in 1985, when I was pregnant with my youngest child, and the two oldest ones where in elementary school during the day, I had time to spend with my four-year-old son. THE LISTENING WALK was one of our favorite books. We were living then on a nine-acre piece of lovely wooded property in Florida and would often take our own "listening walks" in those woods, paying attention to the sounds around us. That original copy of the book has been lost, but I wanted to revisit the theme and the experience with my grandchildren, especially the two youngest, who just turned five years old.

Buy the book, read the book with a child or children you love, and then go take your own listening walks, and do so often. In a world that is often so fast-paced and so loud, it is wonderful to practice listening.

This is a great book in the classroom to help introduce listening and the sense of hearing to students. This is also nice to use at home to help your children think of new was to observe their world.

I ordered The Listening Walk to go along with our PK staff development. We are moving from learning to exploration for our early childhood learners. This is a beautiful story to illustrate the things to do when going on a listening walk.

It was referenced in one of our book study books for this year - A Place for Wonder. In addition there are lots of good connections online of instructional activities to link to The Listening Walk.
