Hannah, the main character in this wonderful children’s story, has very big ears and loves that she can listen to everything in nature. She can hear the grass grow, the wind sing, and the ants march one by one. She can hear birds chirping far away and even hear the trees drinking water. During her numerous adventures, she uses her gift to help trees and animals survive.

This very sweet, well written story is perfect for young children to inspire them to take care of the earth and how to act to make change. The illustrations are so cheerful and fun!

The message in this book is very clear and easily understood by young children. My five year old daughter loves this book and has read it every single day, many times, since we have read it together. She loves how Hannah helps nature so much that she even wanted to run out to give our tree a huge hug after reading this story.

We need more books like this for our youth!

    I do like the idea of this book, it’s always nice when a book doesn’t just entertain but also teaches children something.
