Listen

BEEP! WOOF! VROOM!
Isn’t the world a noisy place?
But what if you stop,
close your eyes,
and LISTEN?

Can you hear each sound?
Can you listen past the noise
and hear the quiet, too?

Beautifully illustrated and poignant, this lovely picture book follows a girl through her school day as she listens to sounds across the city: caws of crows, shouts across the playground, and finally, the quiet beating of her heart and whispered good nights. In the tradition of Tomie dePaola’s Quiet and Scott Magoon’s Breathe comes this lyrical, meditative picture book about listening and mindfulness.

Description

"The child pauses and closes their eyes, picturing the car, the scooter, and the other noise sources in vignettes, each one now distinct. At school, listening continues: playground sounds, storytime sounds, 'words of joy... and words that can sting.' A classmate’s feelings are hurt: 'Can you hear what she’s feeling, too? A sob, a sigh, or even silence'.... Snyder offers an introduction to mental focus, a skill whose enhancement may serve readers struggling to filter through a din." — Publishers Weekly
