The Listening Walk

We're going on a listening walk. Shhhhh. Do not talk. Do not hurry. Get ready to fill your ears with a world of wonderful and surprising sounds!

As this little girl and her father go on their silent walk, they discover all sorts of sounds: buses, bees, woodpeckers, lawn mowers, and so much more. Along the way, she develops a new appreciation for all the activity of both the human and animal members of her community in the spring. Paul Showers' quiet, contemplative story has now been updated with full-color illustrations by Aliki that capture a diverse, welcoming neighborhood for the little girl to explore. It's sure to inspire a new generation to go on their own listening walks!

Description

"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.... Young readers (or listeners) will enjoy the book, both as a story and as a jumping-off point for their own walks." — School Library Journal
