The Listening Walk

The Listening Walk

by Paul Showers Illustrated by Aliki

On a listening walk with her father, a little girl awakens to the many unexpected sounds of their neighborhood.

"Put on your socks and shoes — and don't forget your ears!

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."
