Teaching children how to pay attention and follow directions isn't always easy. Use the books in this list to help children learn these important skills—all while building their literacy foundation. This can be especially helpful for students entering kindergarten

Students will giggle along with oh-so-relatable stories like How Do Dinosaurs Show Good Manners? and Dog on a Frog?. Along the way, they'll learn important lessons about listening, being respectful, and following directions in and out of the classroom.
