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

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.
