I loved The Quiet Book, and I find this one equally delightful for some of the same reasons but also for different ones. Young readers will quickly be able to identify the good and the bad kinds of loud as the animals go about their day. This title would be quite useful as a writing mentor text focusing on all the different levels and kinds of loudness or even some other concept. Those pencil and digitally colored illustrations are wonderful too--with the wide-eyed bunny on the last page, trying to sleep amid the cricket's clamor. My favorite page, though, was the "candy wrapper loud" when the audience members glare at the noise made by a crackling candy wrapper in the quiet cinema. Just reading each page will evoke creative responses for an effective writing lesson. The message may be subtle, but it's clearly found on the book's pages.
