The Quiet Book
Title: The Quiet Book
Author: Deborah Underwood
Amazon Best Books of the Month, April 2010: Give Goodnight Moon and Goodnight Gorilla the night off and pick up this new bedtime classic. This pitch-perfect picture book by Deborah Underwood and illustrator Renata Liwska will quell the pre-bedtime crazies. With the softest of opening salvos—”There are many kinds of quiet”—the story reflects all the different peaceful moments during the day, like “Coloring in the lines quiet,” “Hide and seek quiet,” and of course “Bedtime kiss quiet.” The repetitive pattern of the text paired with softly colored illustrations of adorable stuffed animals is better than a lullaby. —Lauren Nemroff
There are many kinds of quiet:
Quiet can be thundering!
Quiet can be sweet,and cozy,and can most definitely help you fall asleep. With kid-centric descriptions and irresistible artwork, this gentle picture book explores all the different quiets that can fill a child’s days from morning to night.
