The Quiet Book by DEborah Underwood

Underwood, Deborah The Quiet Book, ill by Renata Liwska, 30 pgs. Houghton Mifflin. 2010 $12.95. Content G.  PICTURE BOOK.  The Quiet Book illustrates different kinds of quiet; excited kinds of quiet like right before yelling, surprise and discovering new things. Quiet like meeting an iguana for the first time. I like how the pictures captured the moment. Like with many picture books, the beautiful illustrations make the book. This would be a good book for a writing prompt for students to come up with their own kind of quiet and write about it. ES, MS - ADVISABLE. Shauna, reading teacher.
