Praise for The Quiet Book padded board book…

"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
