The Quiet Book padded board book is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
TheNew York Timesbestseller is now available in a cozy padded board book edition! 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. Soft covers, rounded corners, and sturdy board book pages make this new classic the perfect bedtime companion.

Reviews

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
