BE QUIET!
BE QUIET! | Ryan T. Higgins
12 posts | 12 read | 10 to read
All Rupert the mouse wants is to star in a beautiful, wordless picturebook. One that's visually stimulating! With scenic pictures! And style! He has plenty of ideas about what makes a great book, but his friends just WON'T. STOP. TALKING. Children and adults alike will chuckle at this comedic take on bookmaking from acclaimed author-illustrator Ryan T. Higgins

#UCFLAE3414F19 This laugh out loud fantasy picture book written and illustrated by Ryan T. Higgins is an offshoot of the Bruce books about a grumpy bear and the mice that tag along. After the mice were kicked out of Hotel Bruce, a mouse named Rupert, together with his two friends Thistle and Nibbles, decide to go into the publishing business.

ccipriati Rupert comes up with the idea of making a picture book containing absolutely no words but, instead, having beautiful pictures. But the other two mice will not stop talking! Predictably, at the end of the story, Rupert and his two friends are unsuccessful. This is an amazing book for a read aloud or even to make into a readers‘ theater for the students to act in. 3mo
ccipriati Higgins is able to create characters who demonstrate various relatable emotions and the expressions on his illustrations sometimes do not need any words to understand them.

The UDL Guideline strategy that I have chosen for this book 8.3 which is the strategy intended to foster collaboration and community. You can do this when creating your readers‘ theater for your classroom.

ccipriati The students will work together to create a beautiful performance of the story.

The ESOL Strategy that I picked for this book is #14 that is intended to simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant. When reading aloud to your students, this is very important especially for the ELL students who might not understand what you are reading if you read too fast.

abbie-cadabbie Such a cute and funny book choice! Your review was enough to make me want to read it! Also, your UDL guideline strategy paired well. 3mo
DrSpalding We need books that will have students laughing out loud to show them how pleasurable reading can be. Excellent choice. I like the video read aloud however remember that students need to hear you reading to them as an effective model of reading. 1mo

Be Quiet, a MF picture book written and illustrated by Ryan T. Higgins, would be a great story to use for S. It is a SSYR Award winner! This book follows Rupert the mouse through a fun story hat is very visually stimulating to children. This book also has an amazing vocabulary selection.(Cont.) #ucflae3414su19

galacticbees (Cont.) UDL Strategy 1.2 and ESOL strategy 14 would work best with this resource:

This is a great resource to have your students hear the story read aloud! #ucflae3414su19

5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ AHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhh. Another masterpiece by Ryan T. Higgins. Rupert wants to make a wordless picture book, but it‘s kinda hard to do when everyone is talking. The words just keep appearing on the page. See if he accomplishes his task by the end of this book. A joy to ready, words or no.

LitsyGetsGraphic Funny characters ❤️ 2y
LibrarianRyan @LitsyGetsGraphic it's the mouse with the mustache that is trying to get everyone to be quiet so he can write a wordless book. It's so much fun. 2y
LitsyGetsGraphic @LibrarianRyan I would recommend it to draw a comic book😂😂😂 2y

The illustrations in this book are lovely. It reads like a comic with text only in dialogue bubbles. Silly and full of gags but exclusively bickering -- i didn't love that aspect and consequently chose not to read it aloud to the toddler. I think he'd appreciate it more when he's older. Really pretty though. #mommyreads #picturebooks
