Today's book is In One Ear Out the Other ($16.99). It's a fabulously funny monster book by Michael Dahl, that will amuse parents as much as early readers. The kids and I all loved the colorful, wacky art by Migy.
This silly little monster, Bud, is big fun. He just doesn't listen, like certain someones at so many of our homes. He manages to annoy his family by not helping out when asked. And he struggles in school because the teacher's questions go in one ear and out the other. Then he misses out on good stuff, like a big monster party, by not listening. Check out this brand new 2011 release to see how Bud creatively overcomes his problem. Your little ones will be introduced to better listening habits in a humorous way, and find a new meaning for "put a sock in it". They'll even learn what an idiom is.
In One Ear, Out the Other (Hardcover)
