A Quiet Place

It would be quite difficult to find another book which better illustrates for children the power of imagination; the power to be alone in their own quite place, a place we all have…our mind.

The author begins this work with a declarative statement:

“Sometimes a person needs a quiet place.”

“A place to rest your ears from
bells ringing and
whistles shrieking and
grown-ups talking and
engines roaring and
horns blaring and
grown-ups talking and
radios playing and
Well, even grown-ups need a quiet place sometimes.”

In poetic and gently philosophical prose, author Douglas Wood explores what it’s like to find that special place where we all can think our own thoughts and feel our own feelings. Dan Andreasen brings exquisite imagination and thoughtful wonder to words that will inspire readers of all ages to seek out their very own quiet place.

“Quiet is peace. Tranquility. Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life. Silence is pushing the off button. Shutting it down. All of it. – Amir”
― Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
