About this book Silence could be hard to find in a busy world these days. This book encourages children to stop, listen, and reflect on their experiences and the world around them. The collage-like illustrations and simple yet gentle narratives smoothly lead children to the world of silence to discover new values. The book also reminds readers to pay attention to noisy environments and sensory awareness. Also great for bedtime stories to calm children down and to be grateful for the precious moment of quietness and silence.
Reviews from Around the World
"I’d never heard of Leminscates until I read this book. At the end of the book, it’s shared that the goal is to “encourage children to develop their unique talents and skills for a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them.” The story is told by a little girl who shares what she notices when she is silent, ‘waves crashing’ or ‘snow twinkling’ and on. The collages that make up the illustrations are gorgeous. Since we do so much nature journaling at my school, it will be a beautiful book to encourage silence, to see what children notice." - Linda, Goodreads
