Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely! My nieces and nephews loved (and still love) this Quiet Book. As an adult, I can relate to all the types of quiet that are listed in this story. The author is correct in capturing all of them, including 'drawing on the wall' quiet! Nice soft cover, easy reading and whimsical illustrations. Should be a hit with young and old.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A really nice read As adults we like the beautiful artwork and the simple text. Our 18 month old son likes making the sounds of all of the animals in the book. We bought it because of a line something like "Thinking of a reason you drew on the wall quiet." We had just been at a friends house where the son had drew all over the freshly painted wall.

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 "
