This is a stunningly beautiful book by New Zealand artist and author Laura Shallcrass.
Winner of the 2021 NZ Childrens Book Award for Best Illustration.
It tells the story of a Hare that seeks peace and quiet but cannot find it in a noisy world. He looks all over the place for a calm quietness. A wise old owl, Ruru, helps him in his quest for quiet.
Hare ultimately feels better after doing three things:
• Talking to someone
• Focusing on breathing
• Connecting to nature
This gentle story is for anybody who suffers from noises or anxiety. The words and illustrations are gorgeous and soothing.
This makes a lovely gift for a baby, toddler or child. And we've had adults buy it because it is so beautiful.
It is a 32-page hardcover book which is 20.5 x 29cm.
