The Quiet Book

Underwood, Deborah.2010. The Quiet Book. Ill. by Renata Liwska. Boston: Houghton Mifflin.

Shhhh... How many kinds of quiet are there?
Coloring in the lines quiet, thinking of a good reason you were drawing on the wall quiet, hide-and-seek quiet, last one to get picked up from school quiet,
 and many more.

Each page features its own mood and special kind of quiet, accompanied by digitally colored, pencil drawings in soft and comforting shades. Expressive woodland creatures convey the many shades of quiet - their eyes closed, contrite, wide-eyed, tearful, pensive or contemplative. The Quiet Book is a small and gentle book waiting for small and gentle hands.
