about

All quiet is not created equal. In this irresistibly charming picture book, many different quiet moments are captured, from the anticipation-heavy 'Top of the roller coaster quiet' to the shocked-into-silence 'First look at your new hairstyle quiet.' The impossibly sweet bears, rabbits, fish, birds, and iguanas are all rendered in soft pencils and colored digitally, and, as in all of the best picture books, the illustrations propel the story far beyond the words. A sure-to-be-a-classic bedtime favorite.Awards: 2011 ALA Notable Children's Book, 2010aÇô2011, New York Times bestseller, 2011 CCBC Choices, 2011 NCTE Notable Children's Trade Book, 2010 New York Times Notable Book, 2010 Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year, 2010 School Library Journal Best Book of the Year

Editorial Reviews

A delightful and enchanting choice for storytime or sharing one-on-one."- School Library Journal, starred review "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 "This treasure of a book-which is appropriately gentle in both its understated text and artwork-catalogues many sorts of quiet that readers will recognize instantly."- Publishers Weekly "This gallery of quietude works for bedtime or calming down while also acknowledging that some quiet moods are less than happy? The final sequence-a nighttime car ride in the snow, peaceful steps to bedtime-makes a comforting end. Soothing and layered."- Kirkus Reviews "Sweet and hypnotizing, but not too simple, Renata Liwska's illustrations give The Quiet Book a sense of magic." - The Huffington Post "
