A lyrical, inspiring picture book that promotes empathy from the creators of the New York Times bestseller Come With Me .
Listen
with your heart.
It is your ears
your eyes
your nose
your mouth
your hands -
Author Holly M. McGhee and illustrator Pascal Lemaitre 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.

Holly M. McGhee is the author of the middle-grade novel Matylda, Bright & Tender, an Amazon, Bank Street, and ABC Best Book of the Year. She divides her time between New York City, where she helps bring books she loves into the world as a literary agent, and Maplewood, New Jersey. Pascal Lemaitreis the illustrator of several books for children, including Do Not Open This Book! and New York Times bestseller Who's Got Game? His wife is the dancer-choreographer Emmanuele Phuon. They live with their daughter, Maelle, in Brussels, Belgium where Pascal is a professor at the National School of Visual Arts of La Cambre.
