4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy the sounds of silence with your children., 25 April 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Listening Walk (Paperback)
A simple idea, to listen. But we forget the magic that there is in "first times". Do you remember the first time you heard a cricket sing? Probably not, but after you read this book, it won't matter - you will feel like every time you hear a cricket, and many other sounds in your world, its your first time again.
An invaluable lesson for children growing up with MTV, the Internet, billboards, and multimedia lessons in school. This book helps you and your child to "unplug" and relax long enough to really hear the world around you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, 9 May 2009

This review is from: The Listening Walk (Paperback)
My son is now addicted to this book - it's a bedtime favourite! He's just over 3 and a half, so really enjoys joining in - he does most of the sounds; the dog's claws on the ground as he walks; the lady's highheels getting quicker to catch the bus; the jet zooming; the different lawn sprinklers, etc. It's a lovely, unusual book that focuses on the things in life we don't normally notice in this busy world. I particularly like the end where the author suggests the reader listens to what they can hear when they put the book down - perfect for winding down at bedtime. It's inspired us to go on our own 'Listening Walk' this summer. The only sightly annoying this is it's American, i.e. sidewalk, sneakers, etc, so these needed translating but that's the only thing!

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great children's book of identifying sounds.., 25 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Listening Walk (Paperback)
I have enjoyed reading this book to young children as they join along in reading by making the sounds of the items outside that the little girl hears when she goes on a walk with her dad and dog. The way some of the words are printed on the pages add to the overall enjoyment of reading.

This is a fantastic book for the early years to introduce them to one of their 5 senses. It can prepare them for an outing where they can use their sense of hearing in full.

A lovely book to read to little ones, there is much more than walking when you go for a walk, there is looking and listening
