Lacey Walker loves to talk. She talks all day, and sometimes all night. But when she loses her voice, Lacey learns the importance of listening.
"When Lacey's incessant chatter is halted by laryngitis, the little owl experiences the benefits of her silence. Homework gets done, she realizes that her buddy tells great jokes, and she actually hears a movie. After her health returns, Lacey still talks a lot, but 'listens sometimes,' a realistic conclusion." -- Gay Lynn Van Vleck, School Library Journal
