What a great teaching tool!
I'm a counselor for an elementary building where I read this book to both my preschool and kindergarten classes during our Listening Unit. They love Howard B. Wigglebottom! The illustrations are great and the stories are easy to relate. All 3 of the Wigglebottom books are worth purchasing!

Howard is always in trouble at school because he doesn’t listen even when told by his teacher during story time to stop bouncing around the room and sit down and be quiet. But Howard doesn’t listen. And because he doesn’t listen Howard was always in trouble. He slipped because he didn’t listen to his friends trying to warn him about the banana peel on the floor. Instead of being still on the playground while playing baseball, Howard would hop around and didn’t keep his eye on the ball.
It all came to a head when in art class; Howard didn’t listen to the teacher about trying to keep the paint on the paper and not on the table. So the teacher asks him to take a time out. While he was doing time out Howard felt so sad, he did not like being alone and in trouble. He made up his mind to be a good listener and received a #1 Listener star.
This is a wonderful and engaging book for children to learn how to become a better listener. The Today’s Lesson at the end of the book teaches children to sit quietly, use both eyes and ears to help with listening, not to interrupt and wait their turn to talk and listening discussion questions. Great illustration which helps tells the story.
I highly recommend this book for every household with children and for classroom teaching.

Highly Recommend for First Graders
I'm a first grade teacher and we read this book several times a year. It gets to the point towards the end of the year they have it memorized. They absolutely love Howard! There is repetition on every page "But Howard doesn't listen" and "Howard is really listening" which makes it interactive for students. They love it. I'm going to purchase other Howard B. Wigglebottom books to add to my collection.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
