This is a fun and humorous board book to read aloud. The protagonist is a baby who describes various activities as either quiet and loud, such as thinking (quiet) and singing (loud). The illustrations are simple with bright colors and each page a different background color. You can do a lot with this book--act out the various quiet and loud activities, ask the child to guess which is quiet, or which is loud, or even talk about the colors and illustrations.

The brightly colored pages of this board book feature simple repetitive text with bold illustrations outlined in black. The pattern of this book is as follows: on one page is something that is quiet, on the adjacent page is something that is loud. The text explains this. For example: "slippers are quiet" while "mommy's shoes are loud." The pictures include a toddler in a diaper participating in quiet and loud activities. This book can be read out loud during baby story time, although librarians might want to skip the page set featuring libraries as quiet places as libraries tend to be louder than they had been traditionally. This book and two similar books by Patricelli are excellent picks if you are working on the concept of contrast with a baby. Recommended ages: 0-2. ( )
