Teaching children how to pay attention and follow directions can be frustrating, especially if you're new to the classroom. Use the books in this list as a calming, creative way to stay in control of your class and help children learn these important skills. Students will relate to the boisterous little bunny who just can't sit still, gasp as Big Anthony doesn't follow directions and Strega Nona's pasta pot overflows, and giggle along with a persistent pigeon who really wants to drive the bus—no matter what the driver says! Along the way they'll be learning important lessons about listening and following directions, both in and out of the classroom.
