We Do Listen - Animated Online Stories and Lessons for Children

The We Do Listen Foundation offers free animated stories, games, and lessons for children. The books and their corresponding lessons are designed to help young children learn about things like how to be a good listener, what to do about bullies, and good sportsmanship. All of the books feature the character Howard B. Wigglebottom.

The We Do Listen Foundation's games are a mix of matching activities, spelling games, and pattern recognition games.

Children can create their own Howard B. Wigglebottom stories on the We Do Listen Foundation's website. The foundation provides online tools and templates for writing and coloring their stories. You will also find templates that you can print out and have students color offline too.

Applications for Education
Reading or watching the Howard B. Wigglebottom stories could be a fun way for students to learn about proper school behavior. Creating their own stories could be a good way for students to express what they think are proper social interactions in school.
