There are many
kinds of quiet:

Quiet can be delicate.
Quiet can be
thundering!
Quiet can be sweet,
and cozy,
and can most
definitely help you fall asleep.

With kid-centric descriptions
and irresistible artwork, this gentle picture book explores all the
different quiets that can fill a child’s days from morning to night.

Why we love it~
Beautiful use of language, an amazing collection of instances of quiet -
a seemingly simple book that gives you much to think about -  with
perfect illustrations to match!

Ages 5 & up. Also a great
writing prompt for older children (& adults!)
