Why Are You So Quiet? by Jaclyn Desforges and illustrated by Risa Hugo Is a book for all the quiet kids.
Mary Louise is a quiet girl who loved quiet places. Her friends asked her why are you so quiet? The class teacher demanded she raise her hand in class to answer a question. Her mom looked at her disapprovingly when Mary Louise read in her room after playing with friends.
Mary Louise is troubled by the question, why are you so quiet? She seeks the help of nature to answer the question.
I loved the soothing illustrations and this gentle story which teaches kids that their friends can have different personalities. Some are naughty and boisterous, whereas some are quiet and observant.
