This sweetly illustrated book, filled with bears, birds, bunnies, iguanas, and moose, will literally quiet children down before bedtime. It may take some explaining for very young children to understand what "kinds of quiet" means, but once they understand, they will enjoy lingering over each illustration and thinking about what each one means. The illustrations match the gentle theme, harkening back to a simpler, quieter time.

The matte pencil-drawn illustrations of animals, primarily in shades of brown and gray with a bit of color thrown in, match the gentle theme of the book and have an old-fashioned look.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
