The little quiet book

   超級迷你小書,加上又硬又厚的書頁設計,小豆還不滿一歲時,就自己翻著看了。我是1996年在Berkeley的小書店找到的這本書的。最吸引我的,是念來又像詩,又像兒歌,又有點催眠作用的韻文。

   我不確定台灣買不買得到這本書,所以把詩的部分列下來。至於插圖,何不發揮您的創作潛能,為孩子留下珍貴的傳家寶?

Quiet is.....

Quiet is a moth flapping its wings.

Quiet is a mocking bird after it sings.

Quiet is a spider.

Quiet is a mouse.

Quiet are the noises in your house.

Quiet is a deer standing still.

Quiet is a rabbit on the hill.

Quiet is the fireplace.

Quiet is a hug.

Quiet is the blinking lightning bug.

Quiet is a chipmunk in the park.

Quiet is the puppy who does not bark.

Quiet is the dew.

Quiet are the bees.

Quiet is the wind that stirs the trees.

Quiet is the kitten washing herself.

Quiet the toy upon the shelf.

Quiet is the star.

Quiet is the street.

Quiet are the slippers on your feet.

Quiet is the darkness softly creeping.

Quiet is the teddy soundly sleeping.

Quiet is the moon.

Quiet is the brook.

Quiet are YOU when you close this book.

Hush.

   一面打這首詩,一面又感動起來。每一次睡前念這本小書時,我都會在"Quiet is a hug."的地方,停下來,給小豆一個緊緊的擁抱。念到"Quiet are YOU when you close this book."的"YOU",就輕輕點他的小鼻子。好喜歡這種幸福的感覺!希望您和您的孩子也會喜歡。
