review 1: This book is about an ordinary girl who goes to sleep and dreams she is a fantastic princess that helps everyone. What really caught my attention is that the words aren't just straight and at the bottom of the page, but slant and swirl all over the pages. It made it more interest...

review 1: What a sweet story! In sparse, rhyming words, a little boy and his family pack up their things, leave good friends behind, and move across country. Glowing, gorgeous illustrations show a progression from total devastation to curiosity and ultimately a new friend. This would be...

review 1: THE QUIET BOOKReview==============As I have stated in other reviews, I tend to avoid books that anthropomorphize animals. While this book contains impressively artistic and detailed illustrations, the colors are dark, and the story is beyond repetitive. For most little ones, I th...

review 1: The Quiet Book is a book about all the different reasons a person might be quiet. This book brings to a persons attention that there is not just a couple reasons to be quiet, that there are actually several, many more than a person would at first think. Each quite described in t...

review 1: “There are many kinds of quiet,” begins this delightful picture book aptly titled The Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood. The muted illustrations of bears, rabbits, moose, owls, and other creatures presented by Renata Liwska deftly add to the sense of “hush” as one reads through all...

review 1: I loved THE QUIET BOOK, and I enjoyed this one, too. I think the art here is spectacular. The expressions on the animals' faces--especially the candy-wrapper one and the lunch tray one, are fabulous and often hysterically funny. Because the characters are making loud noises in th...

review 1: So so so so perfectly conceived and executed that I was giggling with delight on every page. All the way from the cover (I LOVE that the duck is playing the kazoo AND the accordion like some kind of all-star one-duck band) to the perfect ending. If I had a child, The Quiet Book a...

review 1: This is an adorable, laugh out loud book! Perfect for the holidays and fun to read. Cat doesn't talk, but he does hold up signs and show you what he's thinking through his body language. The book is written in a style that has a narrator "talking to" the Cat, so facing pages have...
