- The text is simple and presented in rhyme to add interest. In addition to narration that makes the key points, the characters words and thoughts are often presented in speech and thought bubbles. The thought bubbles are especially useful for helping children understand what the characters are feeling.
- The facial expressions of the characters are also very clear and will add to opportunities to discuss how each character is feeling when Lucy is not listening.
- Toward the end of the story there is a cartoon list of each body part so you can talk about what it means to listen with your eyes (looking at the person who is talking) or with your feet (sitting or standing quietly).
- The book shows Lucy being successful in the end and how everyone feels when she is listening - So Good!
- At the end of the book there is a list of suggested activities to supplement the story, and two visuals that can be used in the activities.
Soon they'll be releasing "Whole Body Listening Larry at School!" which will be a great tool for teachers!
