Tomie dePaola’s recently released book, Quiet, is a wonderful book. Quiet takes readers on a walk with a grandfather and his two grandchildren. The grandfather points out how everything around them seems to be in a hurry. After that, they take time to sit, be still, and just be present in the moment. In the end, they realize that it is important to just be quiet and calm sometimes. The illustrations are colorful, but simple. There are very few words, but the message is powerful.

This book is a must read for busy families with young children. It is a great book to relax with. The publishers recommend this book for ages four to eight, but our almost two year old who has a very short attention span, really enjoyed the simplicity of the words and the illustrations.

I’d love to hear from you! Have you read the book? If not, do you have any other book or activity suggestions to help children learn to enjoy quiet moments?
