This playful yet calming book about wonderful forest sounds is the perfect gift for introducing kids to loving—and respecting—the natural world around them.
The forest has lots to say… if you listen.
When a child steps into the forest, her ears are open and her heart is too. She listens carefully and hears marvelous things. She hears the rustling of leaves sharing their secrets. She hears a beetle balancing on a branch. And the more she listens, the more she learns.
I Hear You, Forest is an excellent resource for outdoor education, classroom learning and homeschooling, helping to teach:
- Empathy and connection with all living things
- Mindfulness and appreciation with the world around us
- That the forest is full of magical sounds—you just have to listen!
Book #1 in the Sounds of Nature series! This picture book series about listening to nature explores different ecosystems, including forest, ocean, and mountain soundscapes. It encourages mindfulness, outdoor education, and social-emotional learning, as readers join the characters in using their imaginations to hear the many things nature has to say.
“A whimsical tale of a child who listens hard in enjoying the woods. Every spread features onomatopoeic text that simulates the sounds of trees, leaves, animals, and other living things … A good reminder that a stroll through the woods should provide lots of opportunities to slow down and notice.”
“Reminds us all how the sounds of nature can be restorative to our minds and bodies…..Read this book and head out for a hike. Carmen Mok’s illustrations are both whimsical and realistic, making you wish you were napping on a forest floor right now.”
