Listening in the Early Years. Sharon Garforth, $34.95
The ability to attend, to listen and to look are prerequisites
to all forms of learning. By facilitating children's attention
and listening skills, we are able to give them a better chance

ATTENTION AND LISTENING IN THE EARLY YEARS
is an innovative course designed for groups of children aged 2-4.

think about the words — all vital skills in good listening.
Each session will be a fun and fruitful alternative to traditional
circle-time for early childhood practitioners and speech and language
