A rabbit playfully leaps into a nearby pond and then reaches out to tickle a butterfly’s wings. With her golden locks blowing in the wind, a young child gracefully holds a winged creature as it rests in the cavity of her palm. She plunges into blue waters, yearning to touch the scales of a friendly fish. As dense clouds give way to clear skies, magnificent birds flutter by, one stopping long enough to feel the softness of the girl’s touch. Others draw near, enjoying her serene presence as she becomes one with them and great outdoors that welcome her graciously.
With only images, Silence narrates the story of a little one immersed in nature, surrounded by endless possibilities. Her curiousness and sense of adventure are palpable. Children will feel an aura of tranquility as they journey through the natural world with her, becoming part of her existence. Afterwards, they’ll long to escape into a blanketed forest or an open field covered by a starlit sky. Author and illustrator Nivola Uya’s illustrations will leave them breathless and wanting more. Elementary school language arts teachers will savor this as a perfect catalyst for a plethora of creative writing and storytelling activities.
