Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Slim Goodbody states that active listening aids in improving schoolwork, getting along with friends, and making family meals more interesting. After that introduction, it seems odd that the reference to listening in school is slight and there are no references to talking with family members. Most of the discussion and examples focus on participating in courteous conversations with friends. The hearing process and the parts of the ear are described, followed by a section about the differences between hearing and listening. Other topics include suggestions for focusing, clearing mind clutter, gaining awareness of body language, using friendly phrases, reflecting, taking turns talking, and listening when angry. Readers are reminded that people only remember about 25% of what they hear. The conclusion reminds readers that each person has one mouth and two ears, so they should listen twice as much as they talk. Colorful photographs aid in understanding. This book could be a useful reference tool for adults working with young children. Part of "Slim Goodbody's Life Skills 101" series, this book includes a table of contents, a glossary, a list of resources, and an index. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
