'The Quiet Book' is a cute picture book for children to read. It shows the different kinds of quite and how there are times when it is ok to be quite. This book would be a good nap time book to read. It encourages being quiet for others and yourself.

Genre: Fiction
Review: This is a good example of a fiction book because it is teaching about how the word quiet has multiple meanings through bears and animals talking and doing human like things.

A nice, short book on being quiet. Cute illustrations and maybe a fun test/ activity to see if children to also be quiet or enact the images they see in the book, quietly.

The quiet book shares all different kind of instances when people are quiet. It is told through the eyes of many young animals. There is "Don't scare the robin quiet." or "Hide-and-seek quiet." and Top of the roller coaster quiet," to name a few. The story ends with "Sound asleep quiet."
This book is very simple and sweet. I think the illustrations are amazing and I love the way the illustrator, Liwska, uses soft colors to highlight the idea of quiet. The way Liwska uses texture is in her drawings really guides the reader in where to look across the page. ( )

The subject matter covers the many types of being quiet. From being in trouble, hanging out with your best friend to going to bed. It's entertaining and amusing especially due to the rather cute illustrations accompanying each subject matter.
