Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The holidays are filled with joyful noise. But some Christmas moments come wrapped in quiet: the hush of snow, the silence of a winter walk, the peacefulness of twinkling lights.

Deborah Underwood and Renata Liwska celebrate all kinds of Christmas quiets in this magical ode for readers to savor while snuggling up by the fire or settling in for a long winters nap. This time, the best-selling makers of The Quiet Book and The Loud Book! team-up to create a sweet book of all of the different kinds of quiet we hear during the holiday season.

Review:

"The team that celebrated various kinds of quiet in The Quiet Book revisits that theme with a holiday twist. Underwood again exhibits a flair for selecting evocative scenarios and moods: 'Hoping for a snow day quiet' and 'knocking with mittens quiet' immediately set a wintry backdrop, while 'blown fuse quiet' and 'shattered ornament quiet' speak to the more frustrating moments of holiday prep. Watching the furry animals in Liwska's subtly hued pencil drawings participate in a Christmas pageant, make gingerbread houses, and listen for sleigh bells adds to a sense of gentle anticipation. Reverence for the quieter aspects of the season is indeed a gift. Ages 4 – 8. Agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. Illustrator's agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. (Sept.)"

Review:

"A congenial, understated choice for reading aloud to excited children to help them settle down for a long winter's night." Kirkus

Review:

"This is an ideal title for use during a winter holiday storytime or for one-on-one cuddling at bedtime." School Library Journal

Review:

"Little kids will relate to the anticipation of the big night but also to the little pleasures, like making snow angels and enjoying a cup of steaming cocoa." Booklist

Review:

"This pleasing companion to The Quiet Book and The Loud Book! explores quiet times of the season." Horn Book

Synopsis:

The Christmas companion to the New York Times Bestsellers, The Quiet Book and The Loud Book!, celebrating quiet sounds of the holiday season.

Synopsis:

The holidays are filled with joyful noise. But Christmas is sometimes wrapped in quiet: “Searching for presents quiet,” “Getting caught quiet,” and “Hoping for a snow day quiet.” Irresistibly cute, soft colored pencil illustrations of bunnies, bears, and more paint a magical holiday picture indeed.
