Description
"There are many kinds of quiet," begins this hushed and thoughtful book for youngsters up to 7, from "first one awake" quiet to "hide and seek" quiet, "swimming underwater" quiet, "first snowfall" quiet, and "before the concert starts" quiet, right up to "bedtime kiss" quiet and "sound asleep" quiet. Deborah Underwood's spare text is evocatively paired with Renata Liwska's earth-toned, almost touchably soft drawings of childlike bunnies, bear cubs, birds, and porcupines, conveying a surprisingly wide and varied range of wordless moments—a perfect "whisper aloud" book for bedtime.

"Children will enjoy talking about the feelings that are shown, and every page tells a different story. The most moving scenes leave space for imagining. 'Best friends don't need to talk,' for example, is illustrated with a blissful scene of togetherness that children will relate to their own lives."—Booklist
