Listening Larry is back, and he’s learned a few things about neurodiversity.
It’s true that when we listen, we often use each ear. But listening is more than receiving what we hear!
Listen, Learn, and Grow is a delightful rhyming story that explores the many ways kids can use their whole body as a listening tool. And here’s a hint: Listening looks different for everyone!
Readers will join Larry and his friend Lori in their classroom as they discover that listening is more than just “hearing” with their ears. It’s about using their eyes, ears, mouth, hands, feet, body, brain, and heart to help them remain regulated, focused, and engaged so they can be successful learners at school.
As a bonus, Listen, Learn, and Grow also includes a variety of activities that educators and parents can use at home, in the classroom, and in the community to encourage whole body listening throughout the day.
