Staff Reviews


Lovely: having a beauty that appeals to the heart, mind and eye. That sums up Mary and her story. A great read-aloud for the family and when you're done, go outside and be quiet...because you never know what glorious sounds (and sights!) you'll encounter.

— Susan

Description


From critically acclaimed author-illustrator Peter Carnavas comes a gentle breeze of a picture book with themes of mindfulness, observation, and being present in the natural world.

Mary was a quiet girl. She thought quiet thoughts, stepped quiet steps, and whispered quiet words. Mary knows how to savor the small things. Wonder is everywhere: in the rustle of leaves, in the sigh of a sleeping dog, in the wingbeats of the birds who visit her upcycled feeders. But Mary's family couldn't be more different. Amidst the sound of blow-dryers, blenders, lawnmowers, and her brother's trombone, Mary goes almost unnoticed. It isn't until her family starts searching the neighborhood for her that they begin to see the world through her eyes.

A Quiet Girl invites young readers (and the noisy adults in their lives) to appreciate the thousand little pleasures that surround us--if only we would notice them.
