Description


A lyrical, inspiring picture book that promotes empathy from the creators of the New York Times bestseller Come With Me.

Listen
with your heart.
It is your ears
your eyes
your nose
your mouth
your hands--

Author Holly M. McGhee and illustrator Pascal Lemaître ask you, me, and all of us to inspire empathy by exploring what it means to be connected to everything, including the natural world. Simple and tender, Listen teaches us to engage our senses, to taste, see, and feel in order to engage with the world around us.
