Another beautifully illustrated book by Alison Jay which has an antique-feel to it, Listen, Listen lets children explore the different seasons through the sounds of birds chirping, bees buzzing, hammocks swaying in the wind and leaves rustling.
It offers not just a story; children can play “I spy” and spot the various objects on each page. For older children, this is a great book to talk about seasonal changes and wildlife.
I like the short rhyming sentences in the book which make it suitable even for babies who are notoriously known for their short attention span. At the same time, this is a keeper for its educational purposes. It also comes in a big, sturdy board book format – perfect for my one year old who’s still into chewing books!
