“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.”
