Now in paperback, the award-winning picture book about embracing quiet in a noisy world.Mary knows how to savor the small things. Wonder is everywhere: in the rustle of leaves, in the sigh of a sleeping dog, in the wingbeats of the birds who visit her upcycled feeders. But Mary's family couldn't be more different. Amidst the sound of blow-dryers, blenders, lawnmowers, and her brother's trombone, Mary goes almost unnoticed. It isn't until her family starts searching the neighborhood for her that they begin to see the world through her eyes.From critically acclaimed author-illustrator Peter Carnavas comes a gentle breeze of a picture book with themes of mindfulness, observation, and being present in nature. A Quiet Girl invites young readers (and the noisy adults in their lives) to appreciate the thousand little pleasures that surround us--if only we would notice them. A closing spread about mindfulness rounds out this validating story for introverts and observers everywhere."A quiet young girl in a noisy world, Mary shows her loud, busy family that listening allows for more to be heard."--School Library Journal STARRED REVIEW
