Breadcrumbs Best Book: Listen, by Holly M. McGhee + illustrated by Pascal Lemaitre


By Holly M. McGhee, Illustrated by Pascal Lemaitre

(2019) Roaring Brook Press, New York.

“Listen” is a rare gem! I have yet to find a book that better captures the essence of heart-centered being!!! Holly McGhee’s powerful prose coupled with Pascal Lemaitre’s extraordinary illustrations celebrate the child’s innate predisposition to perceive and respond to the world through the lens of the heart!

“Your heart can hear everything, see everything, smell everything,

taste everything, touch everything…”

Listen’s emphasis on mindfulness, heartful perception and interconnectedness make it an absolute must have for your SEL library!
