Good short book from Henri Nouwen on some of the practices of the desert fathers and the impact of solitude and silence especially when paired with prayer. Convicting in an encouraging way. Thoughtful and helpful as it pondered deeply and still had daily applications too.

Can the entire infamous 5th grade at Laketon Elementary School stay quiet for 48 hours? Lessons in cooperation, respect, and communication abound in this book. Clements does well in using Gandhi‘s silence as an agent to change and making the lessons understandable for kids. This is a recognized PA School Librarian‘s Association Young Readers Choice Award winner, for the 2008-2009 school year. #BBRC #YourStateAwardWinner

In her forties, the author discovered the joys of silence and solitude and it lead her to explore the meanings and varieties of silence. This memoir describes her searches for silence places and the meaning of silence throughout human history. A smart, beautifully written book. Highly recommended.

An experiential book for introverts. I think lots of kids will relate to this. #BBRCPictureBookLetterQ @LibrarianRyan
