    written and illustrated by this team but the idea of a holiday follow up didn t charm me So I m glad that my local librarian gushed about this and when I shrugged left her desk to seek it out A few pages through we were smiling and reading favorite pages aloud to each other How could that little bit of Grinch in me last while looking at three contented bears enjoying Cocoa quiet or on the opposite page Nutcracker quiet which showed an audience on red chairs including a proud mother rabbit dozing bears and a bored little moose As in the other collaborations the words are sparse and perfect The animals are painted with textures that bring out their cuddliness and expressive eyes that pull you right into an episode such as hoping for a snow day quiet or shattered ornament quiet This is exactly the kind of book that will make you want to leave a desk to share it or better yet pore over before a sparkling tree on long nights that might include listening for sleigh bells quiet and trying to stay awake quiet by Jeannine Tags christmas deborah underwood holiday renata liwska the christmas quiet book This entry was posted on Tuesday December 18th 2012 at 6 00 am and is filed under Books for Ages 3 6 Top of the Shelf You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Eliza Brown Categories A Closer Look 1 Authors Illustrators 50 Book Finder 4 Book Lists by Theme 65 Books for Ages 0 3 35 Books for Ages 3 6 86 Books for Ages 6 12 37 Books for Teens Adults 10 Books We Love 42 Books Holiday Seasonal 17 Books Non Fiction 5 Books Poetry 3 Bookselling 15 Caterpillar Reviews 1 Children s Book Industry News 38 Events at The Carle 107 Exhibitions at The Carle 18 Friday Favorite 7 Gift Ideas 6 Giveaways 24 Just for Fun 11 Media 11 Musings 28 Picture Book Puzzlers 88 Products We Love 16 Recommended Books 165 Resources 5 Top of the Shelf 109 Archive December 2015 6 September 2015 1 February 2015 1 October 2014 1 September 2014 2 July 2014 3 June 2014 4 May 2014 5 April 2014 5 March 2014 11 February 2014 3 January 2014 2 November 2013 1 September 2013 4 August 2013 2 July 2013 2 June 2013 2 May 2013 1 April 2013 1 March 2013 5 February 2013 6 January 2013 6 December 2012 8 November 2012 1 October 2012 1 September 2012 7 August 2012 5 July 2012 4 May 2012 8 April 2012 3 March 2012 10 February 2012 12 January 2012 14 December 2011 9
