The Quiet Book

By Deborah Underwood, illustrated by Renata Liwska

The Quiet Book is a restful story that lulls in repetition, as the child is guided through all the kinds of quiet that exist in the world. It’s a lovely way to get children thinking about the peace and space of silence, and the many ways that silence can permeate situations of significance and ordinary moments.

The climax of the book, of course, are the episodes of quiet that we feel during the lead-up to bedtime, and allow a child to continue the story as he or she falls asleep, into the final quiet of a restful sleep. Accompanied by unique animal-based illustrations, this story contains the elements of the classic, while retaining an individual approach to the usual bedtime story fare.
