Charming illustrations of anthropomorphic animals demonstrate all of the many different kinds of quiet, both happy and sad:  "first one awake quiet," "last one to get picked up from school quiet," "first snowfall quiet," "bedtime kiss quiet," and more.  This is a lovely, serene read that is perfect for creating a peaceful bedtime.
