Whether you read it quietly or loudly, learning about opposites has never been more fun - or funny - than with this winning board book.
Sniffles are quiet, but sneezes are loud. Amiably illustrated in a bright, graphic style, Leslie Patricelli's spirited board book, QUIET LOUD, stars an obliging, bald, and very expressive toddler who acts out each pair of opposites with comically dramatic effect.
Leslie Patricelli lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband, their two children, and two kitties. She sketched out her first children's book, YUMMY YUCKY, when her then one-year-old son was putting everything in his mouth. "After hearing myself say 'yucky!' or 'yummy!' for months on end, this book seemed to write itself," she says. "Talking to and watching my young children all day gave me a voice and inspiration for these books. I write down what I say to them and what they say to me."
