“Who would have thought there are so many kinds of quiet: some pleasing (coloring in the lines quiet), some not so pleasing (jelly side down quiet), some thoughtful (first snowfall quiet) and some just wonderful (best friends don't need to talk quiet). Deborah Underwood's text and Renata Liwska's pictures perfectly capture the wide array of a child's experiences that don't involve words. This book begs to be read quietly.”
— Beth Puffer, Bank Street Bookstore, New York, NY

Description


The "New York Times "bestseller 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.
