Dr Seuss' Bright and Early Learning Books have been a timeless books that have withstood the test of time and generations of children! I remember reading this as a beginning reader (40 years ago) and now found it once again for my granddaughter! Fun ways of interacting about 'listening' 'toot too... ...more

All they do is say what they hear "I hear this, I hear that" but they could have made it better by saying what they hear and then also saying if it's good, like "my sister makes a lot of noise when she sings" or "I like hearing certain stuff". ...more

Synopsis: "Illus. in full color. A boy and his dog listen to the world around them."

My Review: I picked this book up because we had the Eye Book and Nose book by the same author and Munchkin loves them. This one was a little bit of a let down unfortunately. Even Hubby mentioned it wasn't as good.... ...more

The Ear Book is a great book for nursery aged readers. Ears, and what we use them for, hearing, are emphasized in this story. The story is good for young readers because it helps them identify the function of an ear and also what a sound is. The book has great rhythm, for example "Our ears hear w... ...more

Nice and simple book, but it has great rhymes. More importantly, it has great sounds. Read it with your kids or have them read it to you. ...more

My 29 month only points to parts on her head so I took this out from our library today.
She points to her mouth or nouth as she says, nose *squeeze it and homks*, and eyes.
She'll also point out her feet and touch her head.
She more grabs and pulls on her ears.
She was calling them eww for while we... ...more

The book identifies the part of our body that allows us to hear, our ears. The book tells children that we can hear with our ears different sounds, for example, popcorn makes a pop sound, a flute makes a flute sound, and a bell makes a ding-dong sound. Also, the book has rhyming words, such as sn... ...more
