Synopsis

The Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood

Quiet can be delicate. Quiet can be thundering! Quiet can be sweet, and cozy, and can most definitely help you fall asleep. This irresistibly charming bedtime classic explores all the different quiets that can fill a child's days from morning until night. Sweet, beautifully rendered bears, rabbits, fish, birds, and iguanas propel the story far beyond words.
