Shannon’s Thoughts:

An empathic little boy wanders a garden watching animals and with plants and each other.

Quite In The Garden is a cute and calming book. I feel it very relatable to me because as a child I watched and played with animals and bugs alike.  The little boy imagines different animals communicating with each other.

Even though the book is very relaxing it gets a little to slow and might make the reader sleepy.  Then again maybe that is the goal since many parents may read this before bed.

I know that author Aliki has written many children books. This is the first book I have read by her. Illustrations are lovely and her writing gives a lot of feeling.  I hope to read more of the author’s work.
