Summary
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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "There's a special kind of quiet that comes with the holidays. This companion title to the beloved The Quiet Book (2010) and The Loud Book! (2011) highlights the joy of the season through small, but priceless, moments. There's searching for presents quiet (and getting caught quiet ), hoping for a snow day quiet, and then bundling up quiet. On a particularly poignant spread illustrating a production of the Nativity with three bear wise men a sweet little lamb has a forgotten line quiet moment, but then is rescued by a whispering cast mate. As with the previous two books, Liwska's utterly edible animals make you want to reach out and cuddle something. There's one quiet incident per page and, while there are perhaps a few too many scenes in all, the book builds nicely to Christmas Eve, as the various moppets wait to hear Santa's sleigh and try to stay awake for him. 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.--Kelley, Ann Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly 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.)
