What kind of quiet do you like?
The 'first one awake' quiet, or the 'top of the roller coaster' quiet?
The 'making a wish' quiet, or the 'best friends don't need to talk' quiet?
I love the 'best friends don't need to talk' quiet. But the one that got me going 'Oh ~' was the 'last one to get picked up from school' quiet. (A sobering reminder for all parents.)
And of course, following the success of this book, Deborah Underwood (author) and Renata Liwska (illustrator) came back with ...
Dropping your lunch tray loud.
Crickets (when you can't sleep) loud.
Or candy wrapper (while watching a movie) loud?
What kind of quiet and loud do you like?
I like the 'cat laying its head on my palm to sleep' quiet, and the 'waking up before the rest of the household to read' quiet.
I rarely like loud but if I were to go with one, it'd be 'cheering for your sports team/person' loud. (And this I recently did during the Olympics ...)
Okay, now your turn: what's your kind of quiet, and your kind of loud?
Grab My Button!

Really enjoyed the honest voice of this narrator ~ a teenager let down by his mother and the foster care system, and almost-picked up through his involvement with a gang.
