The Sound of Silence | Little Lit Book Series

@writesinla shares a thoughtful book for this month’s theme of cities.

In THE SOUND OF SILENCE by Katrina Goldsaito and Julia Kuo, Yoshio listens to all the sounds of Tokyo and then, inspired by a koto player, goes searching for the sound of silence. Wonderfully specific language, details of Tokyo, and a perfect pairing of image and text. I found silence myself when reading this captivating book.  Published by Little Brown Books for Young Readers.
