As promised, the Book of the Month club has begun. The book for September 2007 is Listen, Listen by Phillis Gershator, illustrated by Alison Jay.
Listen, Listen is a stunning journey through the seasons, exploring the sites and sounds of a quiet countryside throughout the year. Alison Jay’s illustrations lend a simple beauty to this tale.
This is just the right book to read along with your toddler or preschooler, who will delight in helping make the sounds of the season (“shhh, shhh” or “buzz, buzz”) and identifying some of the creatures they meet along the way. Early readers will find the simple and rhythmic text fun to read and older kids can use the poetic language as a springboard for writing of their own.
Listen, Listen is recommended for independent readers ages 4–9, or for reading together. The hardcover version is 32pp and retails for $16.99*. It is eligible for the Book of the Month discount in September, October and November, 2007.
