Sleep. It can be difficult for the littlest among us to get to sleep–especially when things go bump in the night!

Filled with delightful onomatopoeia, this not-so-quiet story reassuringly tells little ones that nighttime sounds can be perfectly normal, in fact, they are sometimes desirable in helping one fall asleep. Told in rhyme (and regular readers know how essential rhyming texts are to developing minds) that is easily accessible and enhanced by broad, over-sized illustrations, It’s So Quiet takes us on a bedtime ritual at a country farm, that belongs to a country mouse.

that’s Granddad’s snore

even louder than before!

drowsy barn owl speaks.

the old farmhouse squeaks.

Will our country mouse fall asleep? Well, It’s So Quiet. Who knows? One thing is certain, you’ll be reading this book more than once.
