The Quiet Christmas Book by Deborah Underwood

The Quiet Christmas BookThe hustle and bustle of the holiday season is upon us, but this delightful picture book reminds adults and children alike how so much of the season really is about being quiet. The author, Deborah Underwood, is the creator of The Quiet Book and The Loud Book.

Underwood brings the soft pencil drawn woodland animals from those two books back for Christmas. Each page highlights a different winter tradition from animals bundled up and knocking quietly with mittens on their hands arriving at a party, to making snow angels, drinking cocoa, and a beautifully reverent lighting ceremony. Not all the Christmas quiet is positive, as seen when one of the creatures forgets his line during the Christmas pageant, but he is saved by a quiet whisper from a friend backstage. This lovely, quiet read would be perfect for a calming moment during a busy day of shopping, wrapping and cooking or a bedtime read all holiday season.
