Staff Reviews

You are brought along on every Christmas joy--along with some of the anxiety, anticipation, and excitement--with this seemingly simple repetition. Each page appears to stand on its own, but look closely and you'll be able  to discern backstory and visual narrative from the fuzzy, soft, expressive illustrations that accompany. My new Christmas favorite.


— From The Christmas Quiet Book


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.
