Every turn of the page reveals a new kind of quiet in this contemplative picture book. From “First look at your new hairstyle quiet” to “Coloring in the lines quiet,” Deborah Underwood’s simple text triggers thoughtful reflection and opportunities for discussion and sharing. Situations that are sometimes humorous and sometimes poignant offer universal understanding and appeal. Renata Liwska’s illustrations range from simple animal characters on white backgrounds to full-page scenes. Her soft and muted hues are a perfect match for the mood of this charmingly understated book. (Ages 3–7)
