Much lauded, Deborah Underwood's The Quiet Book is a lovely meditation on quiet, perfect for a reading snuggled with your child before bedtime. Renata Liwska's muted images of bears, porcupines, and even somehow soft-seeming fish provide often humorous context for the kinds of quiet described: "Trying not to hiccup quiet" depicts a rabbit with its paws over its mouth being held upside down in the background while a trio of birds plays an instrumental. All of the predominantly grey, brown & cream illustrations contain subtle surprises (look at that cactus shadow) for the child who wants to enjoy it again in "What flashlight?" quiet.
