Listen with you heart. It is your ears, your eyes, your nose, your mouth, your hands. Author Holly M. McGhee and illustrator Pascal Lemîatre ask you, me, and all of us to inspire empathy by exploring what it means to be connected to everything, including the natural world. Simple and tender, Listen teaches us to engage our senses, to taste, see, and feel in order to engage with the world around us.
