this book was very unique, the theme of the book is quiet. the author thought of all the different kinds of quiet and put them into a book, I love the idea. Teachers can read this book to students and then use the different kinds of quiet talked about in the book to encourage quiet times. For example a teacher may say "Okay class lets practice, first one awake quiet!"

29 months - the illustrations are cute and some parts are humorous but some of the quiet moments seemed like a bit of a stretch. We preferred "Quiet Loud" for this topic. ( )

When I was a little kid I had a book called "Martin's Quiet Book" that my Auntie Anne made for me out of a quilt and you could match shapes with snaps and braid a girl's braid and put facial features on a clown and such. It was the best book ever and in comparison this volume of different types of quiet, while tweely inventive, isn't really in the same league. ( )

Sometimes the characters' expression (facial and body language) didn't help illustrate the text. And it would have been nice if each character had its own personality - they were just generically cute, imo. What does kind of quiet is 'jelly side down quiet,' anyway? ( )

This was a cute and relate-able book for children as it tells of all the types of quiet they may see in their days. Some are funny and some are sad, but they all are illustrated to be simple not drawing in too much emotion to be to sad. I think this would be a great book for children to see that what they go through is common. Also, a teacher or parent could utilize this by speaking quietly and reading it before nap time or bedtime as the book ends with "Sound asleep quiet". Not too much adventure happens, but from reading it I felt a sense of calm and I think children will feel that too with an adults soothing voice reading it showing neutral and simple pictures.
