I am very touched by the book. The drawings are beautiful and capture the emotions succinctly for children to be heard and attended to. 

- Juliana Toh

My children and I find the drawings very nice and the writing easy to understand. I also find the list of questions simple and useful to explore and have a conversation around the illustrations. 

- Elijah Sim

As adults, even the best of us may lack the awareness to understand and articulate our own emotions, much less to help children communicate theirs. This book could help parents and educators facilitate this important conversation with children

- Robyn Tan

“I Hear You" might appear disarmingly simple and straightforward at first glance. However, slowing down like the beautifully illustrated snails, it is a must-read for all parents, caregivers and educators. To learn or relearn the importance of slowing down and hearing the children’s hearts. And hopefully, as they grow their voice, they will one day be able to say to us, “Thank you for hearing me.”
