Please Be Quiet!
by May Murphy

Little penguin is having a wonderful time hopping & skating about the house. "Please be quiet," his mother tells him, "The baby is sleeping"

But it's very hard for him to keep still & finally his mother sends him outside to play. When he comes back inside, he finds a clever way to have fun & keep quiet


Filled with bright colours & familiar activities & language, it's warm, reassuring & perfect for toddlers at bedtime or anytime

Simple, recognisable antics along with flamboyant blue, yellow & red are appealing, as is the closing page: little penguin, now settled in his mother's lap along with the baby, tells the crying child, Please be quiet! What goes around, comes around, in this jolly glimpse of a child's noisy needs

Young children will relate to the near-impossible task of being quiet when it's time to play & will be gently reassured by the parent who loves him, noise & all

Excellent for my 9 month old. When we utter the words "please be quiet' he is openly overjoyed. We use this as a sleep trigger & put him to bed straight after reading it. Works a treat

The pictures are great for brand new baby eyes. I think it's also a great story for new "big" siblings

So fun to read
