Set of 5
From a clock's tick in the morning to a father's snores at
night, sounds are everywhere. That's what an attentive boy discovers as he
listens his way through a school day. He perceives that sounds can be loud or
soft and low or high. And sometimes, he
notices that things like butterflies and wiggling worms are so quiet, he can't
hear them at all. The point of this gentle book is not to explain how your
sense of hearing works; rather, it aims to sharpen your awareness of all you
can hear ... and all you can learn when you listen.
Quiet as a Butterfly is part of the I Wonder Why series, written to ignite
the curiosity of children while encouraging them to become avid readers. These
books explore the marvels of the sense of hearing, sight, smell and related
phenomena. Included in each volume is a Parent/Teacher Handbook with
coordinating activities. The I Wonder Why
series is written by award-winning science educators.
This book is sold as a set of five.
