About the Author

Deceased. ESTHER WILKIN (1902-1985) wrote several Little Golden Books for her sister Eloise Wilkin to illustrate.

Deceased. ELOISE WILKIN (1904-1987) is one of the most beloved and prolific Golden Books illustrators. To many, her work embodies "that Little Golden Book feeling" as well as a certain, and seemingly simpler, time in America. Wilkin's loving depiction of the natural world, and her paintings of cherubic, chubby children, helped make Golden Books an icon. Her Little Golden Books My Little Golden Book About God and Prayers for Children have never been out of print.

I learned to read with this book. I have a PhD now. Your results may vary, but this book is a delightfully drawn and lighthearted romp for ages 1-3. The words have a melodic quality and the images are reminiscent of watercolour paintings.

This is such a wonderful book, and I'm only hoping I can find it for my daughter, as it's out of print. This was my favorite book when I was little, and the melodic prose is as as memorable as the beautiful illustrations by Eloise Wilkin. Here it is thirty years later and I can still quote the beginning: "These are the things that baby hears when he listens hard with his little ears." A wonderful book for bedtime.

I had this book when my girls were little. I gave my copy to my 34 year old daughter when she had her 1st daughter. Now I have 4 grandchildren and wanted another copy to keep at my home. The children love the simple rhymes. I do too! Highly recommended.

"TICK-TOCK, TICK-TOCK, that's the sound of baby's clock..." Baby Listens is the favorite in our house these days with my 11-month old little one. He wants me to read this book 3 and 4 times in a row as he smiles and moves to the sounds of the rhyming, melodic text. Sound words like BUZZ, SNAP, JINGLE and CREAK come to life in the story and illustrations of Baby's world. "These are the sounds that Baby hears, when he listens hard with his little ears." Love it!

This is one of my daughter's favorite books. It is really simple - it just talks about lots of different sounds that a child might hear, like a clock or a train or a car etc. It has a nice sing-song rhythm and the pictures are more realistic looking people than many other books feature. It is great size book to bring along for travel as well. We love this book so much that we have bought as a gift for others.

Baby absolutely loves this book, as do I. (She goes crazy over the baby.) The illustrations are beautiful and inimitable, and the text is simple, timeless and charming. Pushes all the nostalgia buttons for mom and dad, while being relevant and captivating to baby. The only thing is, baby loves it so much that she has eaten most of the edges off the pages, because they are extremely thin paper, which can easily dissolve and rip. For some reason, I recall the pages being more sturdy, even laminated, when I was young--but this could be my imagination. I love the affordability of these editions, but it would be great if Little Golden Books could make them in the form of board books, so that they could survive the baby destruction zone...because Baby not only Listens, but puts everything in her mouth! That way, this classic beauty could last for years to come. Otherwise, I highly recommend. They just don't make books like this anymore. And I am so glad that Little Golden Books brought them back.

Sweet book. Refers to baby as a "he". Is a lot like the bow wow meow book, but just refers to baby as a boy. Fits perfectly since my daughter and son will each have a "what sound does this make" kinda book

The illustrations in this book take me right back to my childhood – I'm so glad that I am able to find many of the same books that my parents read to me when I was little to now read to my children. The book is adorable – the illustrations are sweet – my four-month-old baby girl loves the pictures – can't go wrong with this book!
