Read full description of the books Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen:“Howard makes up his mind. From that moment on, he will try very hard to be the best listener he can be.”
Howard B. Wigglebottom is always in trouble in school because he doesn’t listen. Throughout the story Howard is in his own world—he does whatever he wants without heeding the warnings of others. One day in timeout (for not listening) Howard is very sad, he realizes that he needs to listen more. So, he does! He tries very hard to listen during the day and it pays off. Howard even gets an award for his stellar listening!
Howard B Wigglebottom is so relatable to children in school. He lives in each one of our children in the classroom. I know he lives in mine! Sometimes, it is so hard for smaller children to listen to directions, warnings, conversations—you name it! I think this book with its fun, watercolor illustrations and accessible language is the perfect text to help students see the importance in listening to others. In the story, Howard not only finds himself in trouble with the teacher, but in situations that could have been avoided—like flying around the classroom on the ceiling fan! Even with this silly instance, I think children can make the connection between listening and safety, learning, fun, etc.
One of the best parts of this book is that there are rules to how to be a better listener at the end of the story. There are also listening discussion questions for teachers to use with students. This book is a perfect resource for teachers to use any time in the year to help students see the importance in listening. It provides the teachers with tools to guide the conversation and even rules that can be posted in the room to help remind students of how to be good listeners. This book could also be used to teach students to be reflective, how to be good citizens, among other things. Another great thing about this book is that it also has a corresponding website to go along with it (www.wedolisten.org). There are other books in the series and even songs to match. Overall, I think this book is a great resource for teachers in the lower grades (elementary) to help with positive classroom management and creating a positive classroom culture of listeners!
