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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Great book to discuss peace with kids. It explains various types of quiet . Would recommend for youngsters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Irresistible The author and illustrator have done a perfect job of portraying vignettes of 'quiet moments' that everyone can relate to. A wonderful nighttime story with magical, soft illustrations.

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"
