This Quiet Lady is a picture book that cleverly conveys “The Beginning” at the end, as the child in the story views pictures of her mother from her mom’s childhood to the birth of herself. The pictures allow a reader to simultaneously experience the past and the present on opposite pages. The use of sepia colors gives the book a genuine feel for the power of photographs as they vividly come to life in the colorful portraits on the adjacent page. School-age readers between the ages of 5–9 will find the most interest in this engaging story.
