Overview
In this beautiful picture book by renowned artist Lisa McCue, Little Bunny discovers the importance--and pleasure--of dancing to your own kind of music.

More than anything, Quiet Bunny loves the sounds of the forest: the birds chirping, the wind whispering shhhhh through the leaves, and, especially, the night song all the rabbits listen to. But, one day, he wonders: how can I join in? Bunny wanders the woods asking animal after animal--but he just can't ch-cheet like the cricket, ssssss like the hissing snake, or o-uuuu like the howling wolves. But nothing feels just right--until Quiet Bunny finds the wonderful beat that's his and his alone.

In the first book that McCue (who has illustrated several Corduroy books) has both written and illustrated, a plush-looking little rabbit who loves the sounds of the forest, discovers, after some fits and starts, that he too has something to offer. McCue's textual cues, which encourage audience participation, are the hook here: “First the cricket, ch-cheet ch-cheet ch-cheet.... And the tiny mosquitoes, nNNnnnnnnnNnnn.” More imitations are encouraged when, over the course of the next day, Quiet Bunny surveys his friends in search of possible signature sounds—none of which he's equipped to make. Only when an owl advises, “Be whoooooo you are,” does Quiet Bunny discover his inner Thumper as he leaps onto a log. McCue employs language and conceits that are mushy and overly familiar—it's only his aural fixation that saves Quiet Bunny from being something of a wuss. But the author's idyllic settings and canny sense of story-time dynamics should make this one a favorite. Ages 4–6. (Apr.)
