  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2010 February #2
    Silence is the story in these simple scenarios, featuring young animal characters, that show suspense, eloquence, and surprise in what looks like emptiness. The tense scenes between characters balance quiet before a big noise: at the top of a roller coaster; before a concert starts; right before someone yells, "Surprise!" Then there is the magical transformation of a silent snowfall and the comfort of a bedtime kiss. The digitally colored pencil illustrations show a cast of young animals––bear, rabbit, porcupine, owl, and more––and some of the illustrations may be a bit muted for young preschoolers. But children will enjoy talking about the feelings that are shown, and every page tells a different story. The most moving scenes leave space for imagining. "Best friends don't need to talk," for example, is illustrated with a blissful scene of togetherness that children will relate to their own lives. Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.
