Enjoy some quiet time with The Quiet Book.

The Quiet Book


Picture Book

Ages 2-5

By Deborah Underwood

Illustrated by Renata Liwska

32 pages

Houghton Mifflin Books for Children



Renata Liwska’s soft, rich drawings are drenched in warm, earthy colors in this simply lovely picture book. Her art is the perfect companion to Deborah Underwood’s straightforward text.

Adorably cuddly animals introduce readers to some of the many kinds of quiet.

There’s coloring in the lines quiet,

lollipop quiet,

top of the roller coaster quiet

and, my favorite, first snowfall quiet.

Identifiable scenarios guide readers and listeners in hearing the quiet in each spread.
