The Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood, illustrated by Renata Liwska
Underwood and Liwska sweetly portray dozens of ways to luxuriate in the joys of quietude. “Lollipop quiet,” “coloring in the lines quiet,” “first snowball quiet,” and “what flashlight? quiet” are just a few of the child-centered situations author and artist offer. Softly composted animal characters (looking like lovable stuffed toys) add to the delight of sharing this soothing book.
