Shared with us by Howard Binkow of We Do Listen
Since 2005, the We Do Listen Foundation has helped millions of children and families to learn several important social, emotional life lessons.
To help families during this ongoing virtual learning time, all Wigglebottom and Wonder Kitty animated books, songs, interactive lessons, discussion suggestions, posters, educational activities and author visits may now be viewed and most downloaded for free at www.wedolisten.org. All stories, songs and educational activities include listening or being present as major or minor themes.
