    A privilege to write a review for the Quiet Book

    This is a wondrous book about all the different kinds of quiet there are for kids. Happy quiets and worried quiets, scared quiets and "was I being naughty?" quiets.

    I have to declare an interest, since I am Deborah Underwood's brother in law. Which means I have had the privilege of knowing the book for many years in draft form (you have NO idea how long it takes for children's picture books to come out - this one was fast as it only took about 3 years!)

    The book has always been brilliant but I didn't imagine how great the pictures would be to go with it.

    In short I think this is a great book and I don't think you or your children will be disappointed.

    Beautifully illustrated, quiet story.

    This is a top contender for best nighttime read. My 3 1/2 year old daughter loves it. The illustrations are so endearing - I wish they made stuffed animals that looked like these precious bears, bunnies, moose. I also enjoy the quiet times that Underwood has so cleverly pointed out. I couldn't recommend it more highly!

    thoughtful- not monotonous

    We added this to our home library about three weeks ago. The children, 5 and 1, love the adorable illustrations and story. I enjoy the thought that went into developing examples of quiet kids can relate to. A very gentle, sweet book the kids like to revisit at nap and bedtime.

    LOVE this book!

    The story is wonderful and the illustrations are adorable. As an adult, I enjoed this story. The children I've read it to have been captivated by the different 'quiets'.

    A treasure in our home

    I read this book to my daughter every night for bedtime. It is one of the most wonderful books I have read for children. The art work is beautiful and the many "quiets" are honest and sweet. Every time I have a chance I share it with friends and family, who all love it and say they must have a copy. This book is a precious addition to our daughter's library.

    Very Cute and Fun!

    My 5 year old daughter loves this book! I even recorded my voice reading the story to her. She is starting to learn how to read she repeats after me.
