Listen To The Children
A collection of conversations to help adults understand children
76 pages, 11cm x 18cm
1996, ReconRe Sdn Bhd
This is a collection of conversations to help adults look at the world from the eyes of a child. Accompanied by cartoon illustrations, it is a heart-warming peek int the innocent and not so innocent minds of children as they try to make sense of the strange adult world that surrounds them.
The author, Lee Bee Teik, has drawn out the humour and cheekiness of the children in each event she records. But the liveliness of the conversations is original to the children themsleves! Listening to them express themselves in the natural surrounding of homes and school will surely remind even the crustiest adult of the forgotten joys of being a child.
Lee Bee Teik hopes her readers will be stirred to re-learn the simple faith of the child in our heavenly Father from this simple book. Furthermore, she prays that the adults reading this book will come to a deeper appreciation of the children under their care, and be encouraged to foster their spiritual and emotional development in an environment of listening acceptance and loving discipline.
