★"Throughout [It’s So Quiet], the soft, rhyming text and the illustrations, which are like chalk outlines of the noise-making creatures, highlight the stars of this book, the sounds themselves. Great fun, and a great way to make children aware of the sounds that surround them."
—Booklist, starred review

★"Onoma-topoetic words add fun to Rinker’s rhyming readaloud, while digital illustrations by Fucile offer accurate representations of each sound, as well as of a sweetly irritable child who is eager to get some shut-eye. Younger readers will enjoy the easy repetition, and may even begin to find comfort in real-life quiet."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"[T]his tale is a cacophonous triumph on the path to rest. [It’s So Quiet] is fantastic story time choice."
