Description



About the Book



The "New York Times" bestseller and bedtime favorite that explores all kinds of "quiets" is now available in a cozy padded board book edition! Full color.



Book Synopsis



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. Awards: 2011 ALA Notable Children's Book, 2010-2011, New York Times bestseller, 2011 CCBC Choices, 2011 NCTE Notable Children's Trade Book, 2010 New York Times Notable Book, 2010 Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year, 2010 School Library Journal Best Book of the Year

This gallery of quietude works for bedtime or calming down while also acknowledging that some quiet moods are less than happy...The final sequence--a nighttime car ride in the snow, peaceful steps to bedtime--makes a comforting end. Soothing and layered.--Kirkus Reviews
