Listening Time by Elizabeth Verdick


Listening Time by Elizabeth Verdick

Put away the wiggles. Put away the giggles. Listening works better when your body's calm and still. When it's time for young children to listen closely, this book sets the tone. They discover that it's important to open their eyes and ears but to close their mouths ( zip it, lock it, put it in your pocket ) so good listening can begin.
An award-winning author/illustrator team offers a fresh look at the times and transitions all toddlers face daily, giving young children the tools to handle routines with confidence and cooperation.
Part of the Toddler Tools series, Listening Time can be shared before (or during) the desired time, or whenever toddlers need encouragement with routines.


A great book to use at the beginning of the school year when establishing classroom rules . . . one to which teachers should periodically return to remind children of the listening rules. --Andrea Coventry, Montessori educator, Andi's Kids Books Blog
