Charlotte likes quiet. But wherever Charlotte goes, she is surrounded by noise, noise, noise—her yipping dog, Otto; the squeaky, creaky swings; the warbling, wailing sirens. Even in the library, children yammer and yell. Where can Charlotte find a quiet place? Sara Woolley’s magnificent watercolors bring Charlotte’s city to life when Otto leads her on a wild chase through the park. There, Charlotte discovers a quiet place where she never would have imagined!

Sometimes children need a break from our noisy, over-stimulating world.Charlotte and the Quiet Place shows how a child learns and practices mindful breathing on her own and experiences the beauty of silence.

Parents, teachers, and caretakers of highly active or sensitive children will find this story especially useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Mindfulness Activities Bought this to read to a Kindergarten class to prepare for our walk to found our own "quiet place." We loved it, both the story itself as well as the illustrations.
