Summary
All quiet is not created equal. In this irresistibly charming picture book, many different quiet moments are captured, from the anticipation-heavy "Top of the roller coaster quiet" to the shocked-into-silence "First look at your new hairstyle quiet." The impossibly sweet bears, rabbits, fish, birds, and iguanas are all rendered in soft pencils and colored digitally, and, as in all of the best picture books, the illustrations propel the story far beyond the words. A sure-to-be-a-classic bedtime favorite
Summary
A winsome group of young animals demonstrate the many different types of quiet. It includes anxious ("sleeping sister quiet"), excited ("right before you yell 'SURPRISE!' quiet"), guilty ("thinking of a good reason you were drawing on the walls quiet") or deeply contented ("best friends don't need to talk quiet"). -- Description by Rebecca Honeycutt
