About The Book

Lily learns to listen with more than her ears in this fifth picture book in the 7 Habits of Happy Kids series.

On a rainy day, Lily wants to make cookies. But instead of paying attention to the recipe, she tells her dad she knows what she is doing. When Lily’s friends spit out her cookies, she wonders what went wrong!

Featuring the lovable characters of 7 Oaks, this book addresses the fifth habit of happy kids: “Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood.” This story highlights the importance of listening—and how you can listen with your eyes and your heart as well as your ears.
