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.
