Description

Be Quiet! is a fun and interactive picture book for children 3-6 to learn rhythm, practice speech and just be LOUD!

Sometimes there is a time to be LOUD. But NOT when someone's trying to sleep!

A wonderful book for teachers and children working with speech. It is also a great bedtime book, a chance for the little ones to get all their energies out before sleep.

I loved this book and it is perfect for young children, we actually read the book as soon as it came down to my Kindle and it sounded a fun read - and it was!

I thought that this book was fun and it was well laid out and we did a mini drum roll as we turned over the pages to get to the next part to guess what was coming

It was nice, bright and attractive too and my five year old daughter loved it as the simple words used meant she was able to read the majority of the book to me too

It is 5 stars from me for this one – very highly recommended!

The one lesson I never learned… This is a precious fun and interactive picture book for the little ones, and I love the fact that it encourages them to be loud, proud, and to learn rhythm and practice their speech without having to be ashamed of their energy or excitement. Move over Old McDonald – this one will allow your child to master the art of sounds and the animals that makes them, while making sure they know that it’s okay to be loud and proud, though there are times where being quiet is appropriate.

This was a cute way to show kids that grown ups aren't the only ones wanting quiet time. I loved all the little creatures requesting quiet from others.

Read this with the kids as soon as it landed on my Kindle and let's just just say the ringing in my ears is proof enough that they loved the book! They yelled their heads off at the prompt and thoroughly enjoyed it.

A small lesson in here for the parents, let your kids scream and shout and be loud when they are happy and excited. It truly is fun.

An important lesson for all children to learn, there is a time and place for being quiet and a time and place when it is okay to be LOUD!!

Be Quiet is a simple picture book with a great message. There are even interactive portions where kids can be prompted to be loud and yell and times when they will be quiet. This is great for schools to discuss inside voices and outside voices, but also a great bedtime story too. This would be a great book to read to older siblings when a younger sibling is taking a nap or going down for the night.

There are also speech components in there and the book description even mentions how this book can be used to practice speech. It is a great purposeful outlet for noise. Great for counselors offices too when working with children who may have a hard time with impulse control.

Be Quiet by J Donnini is a short, simple story for young readers. The illustrations remind me of Eric Carole’s style. This would be a great book for reinforcing animal sounds with toddlers or the “treat others as you wish to be treated” rule. The book seemed to switch from individual animals being loud to everyone being loud together quite abruptly. My daughter enjoyed when the book encourages the reader to also join in. Overall I found this to be a cute, quick read.

J Donnini's Be Quiet is a short, straightforward story for young readers. The illustrations are in the style of Eric Carole. This would be a great book to use with toddlers to reinforce animal sounds or the "treat others as you would like to be treated" rule. The book seemed to abruptly shift from individual animals being loud to everyone being loud together. My daughter liked it when the book encouraged the reader to participate as well. Overall, I thought this was a cute, quick read.

A very cute and sweet read for a young child. The pictures are lovely and endearing. There are lots of animal noises to get your child to copy and interact with.

This book was a quick short read for young children probably best for ages 3 to 6.

The illustrations were adorable.

My child loved when I read this to him because our dogs are constantly waking us up with their barking and it drives us nuts.

Short, cute and colourful. Not story-driven, but definitely a book that could be a lot of fun when the reader/child gets involved with all the noises being made. Really lovely illustration too - clean and bold, without being over-simplified.

🙉 My review 🙉
This is a short colorful story that helps children understand when it’s time to be quiet, and when its time to be LOUD! I would not suggest reading this As a bedtime because it really hipes them up. I think this would be an amazing book for teachers.

There's a time to be quiet and a time to be LOUD in this fun, interactive picture book perfect for young readers. The text and story are simple with a fun surprise at the end. The illustrations are bright and appealing. This book would work especially well for toddlers and preschoolers who are learning about volume control and also enjoy the fun of just being loud!

Thank you for a free copy of this book review. Opinions expressed are my own.
This is a super cute, super short story. While it does seem best suited as a bedtime story to get kids to quiet down and go to sleep, it could be used in the pK-2nd grade classroom. It has a patterned text quality in which kids can predict what comes next and chime in to read with you. It also incorporates animal sounds and an invitation from the characters to be loud...for a moment. Then settle down and go to sleep. This would be great in the classroom for predictive text, sounds in writing, noise level expectations, etc. Very cute and simple. Love the mouse ending :)

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an electronic copy to read in exchange for an honest review.

This is a cute book about different animals trying to nap and being interrupted by the noise of others. A nice introduction to the noises made by animals. The pictures are also simple, yet colorful.
