What You Need to Know:|
• Wonderful picture book that honors children's emotions.
• Sweet, quiet illustrations.
• A perfect book for a quiet moment with your young one, before bed or whenever a cuddle moment strikes.
Deborah Underwood, author of this lovely picture book, has done a beautiful job validating the emotions of the youngest little people in our lives. She does so with soothing text combined with serene illustrations by Renata Liwska.
Underwood refers to feelings by calling them "quiet". Underwood starts with, "There are many kinds of quiet". Some of the different kind of quiet she highlights are: "Jelly side down quiet", with a picture of a bear who just dropped his jelly sandwich. "Thinking of a good reason you were drawing on the wall quiet": self -explanatory. And my personal favorite, "Best friends don't need to talk quiet."
Underwood brilliantly captures kid's innermost thoughts in a way children will easily relate to and feel very comforted by. Just a brilliant book that any house with young children should have on their bookshelf.
