    Book Description:
    Quiet . . .
    like a quilt on a feather bed . . .
    and frost on the window . . .
    we write our names knowing . . .
    the sun will melt them offBut the sun is so quiet . . .
    that we don’t care
    we smile
    —from Connie by Nikki GiovanniThe quiet and noisy, wintery and sometimes sunny poems in The Sun Is So Quiet will always make you smile. Nikki Giovanni describes riding rainbows, tiptoeing through strawberry patches, licking chocolaty fingers, snuggling under covers, and many other wonderful childhood moments. Ashley Bryan’s warmest, most colorful illustrations make each page look like a bright, beaming smile.Together, they have created a collection that you can linger over like a peppermint candy cane or enjoy as quickly as a snowflake melts on your nose.
