Format: Hardcover
Great Sequel to Riley's "When I am Quiet on Maui" book....another "fav" of my 2yr. and 4 yr. old sons.... Holds the attention span from cover to cover----even my 2 yr. old--likely due to such bold, beautiful illustrations and interactive nature of book helps keep the focus...and the 4 yr. old delights in "the hidden words" in the pics and is fascinated with it overall!!!! It is another MUST HAVE for the preschool/early elementary age group!!!!

My son loves the whimsical illustrations. I love that it teaches my son the idea of getting rewarded by being quiet and paying attention to what nature has to tell you. Judi has a unique style all her own. If you plan on visiting hawaii, this is must read, must have. Even if you don't plan on visiting, this book is a great way for your little ones to learn about what kind of animals live in Hawaii. As a marinelife conservationist here in hawaii, I must also mention the importance of teaching our kids to appreciate species that are threatened or endangered.

WOW! What a fabulous concept for a kids book! The story begins: "When you are quiet what do you hear," then continues "When you are still what do you see?" We read this one over and over again. It leads to awesome discussions and it is really fun learning about the different animals on Oahu. I had no idea so many of them were endangered species. This is a really nice sequel to Riley's first book about Maui. We've never been to Oahu, but after reading this book, we feel like we've been there dozens of times. Definitely get this book if you love the islands!

I enjoyed ordering this book for my granddaughter, who enjoys visiting her grandparents who live there. It is an important part of her heritage.

This is a lovely book about being quiet and peaceful, listening to the earth and to the large and small creatures that inhabit it. It's a great example for young kids used to the constant bleeping of video games and cell phones. It teaches you to be still--something we all need to learn.
