Tomie dePaola - Quiet — Signing only, in Children and Teens

Upcoming Event
Friday, November 9, 2018 - 6:00pm

This is a SIGNING ONLY event.

As a grandfather and histwo grandchildren meander through a lush, green park, they observe all of nature’s activity. They each comment on the fast pace of the birds, the high leaps of the frogs, and the way the trees’ branches rustle in the fast wind. Everyone and everything seems to be in such a hurry. The grandfather, searching for a moment of peace in all of the chaos, suggests that they sit quietly on a bench. The creatures respond with a  resounding hush. Tomie de Paola’s characteristic yet always refreshing style reflects the stillness that his characters feel revealed through sparse text, muted palette, and simple illustrations. This book provides a peaceful reminder to enjoy the quiet moments in life. Ages 4 to 8.
