By Claire Llewellyn. Illustrated by Mike Gordon. Joe has experienced the downfalls of not listening—for example, when he got left behind on his school fieldtrip. He also knows that he hates not being listened to, like when he really needs to tell someone about his terrible day. These days, Joe does his best to pay attention when people are talking to him. Playful pictures illustrate the dilemmas Joe finds himself in when he doesn’t listen, and the way things work out for the better when he does. The book concludes with a note for parents and teachers. Grades K–2. 7" x 8". Barron’s. 32 pages. ©2001.
