The Quiet Book
Deborah Underwood, illustrated by Renata LiwskaHardcover2–5 years AU$19.95
The word 'quiet' is not one you often associate with littlies, but this book is a delightfully child-centred depiction of all the types of quiet experienced throughout a child's day.
A rabbit doing his morning stretches is the "first one awake quiet". Three animal friends who crouch behind a couch are the "right before you yell, 'SURPRISE!' quiet". While a bear and a rabbit playing with the waves at the beach show "Best friends don't need to talk quiet."
The softest pencil-drawn illustrations of bears, rabbits, porcupines, mice, owls, moose, and wombats really make this book - they are so full of expression. Thoughtful, soothing and enchanting this is a really beautiful book to share.
