Product Details

Praise

Thought-provoking . . . An accessible addition to libraries that may function as a springboard for a discussion on positive communication and the importance of listening.”—School LIbrary Journal

“Like Ludwig and Barton’s previous picture book, The Invisible Boy (2013), which concerns a quiet child, this book has a purpose. It deals with a recognizable problem, offers some points to discuss, and delivers its message lightly.” —Booklist

“Sympathetic and most of all, hopeful.”—Publishers Weekly

“The ending reflects real life in that Owen still has bouts of talkativeness, though now he does also listen for others’ input. . . . Similarly talkative youngsters struggling with social interactions may want to schedule their own laryngitis days.” —Kirkus Reviews

 “This delightful story shows the beauty and benefits of tuning in and listening to others in compassionate, caring ways—something we definitely need more of in our chatter-filled world!” —Dr. Michele Borba, bestselling author of UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World
