Beautiful "Silence"



Don't you think Silence is a perfect name for a book without words? This delightful book is filled with illustrations by award winning artist, K.C. Snider. She has illustrated dozens of books for Guardian Angel Publishing. This is her first book on her own.  Her remarkable, vibrant art is beautifully displayed on each page as an adorable mantled ground squirrel quietly visits scenic areas in Crater Lake National Park.

Containing no words, the pictures tell the story as this small creature makes its way around the lake, rides two boats, interacts with children, adults and other creatures, tastes, samples and explores the many things the park has to offer. Each illustration is a detailed and precious work of art set in spectacular surroundings. Children and adults of any age can enjoy this art filled book while using their own imaginations to discover the story. KC has again shown her tremendous artistic ability in this new release from Guardian Angel Publishing.

You can visit KC at her blog and feel free to leave any comments or questions you might have for her. Silence is also available from Amazon in paperback or hardcover.

This book blew me away. I can't stop thinking about the amazing artwork and all the wordless stories the pictures contain. I can't wait to have a child read it to me.

Envy the squirrel.

I love the title of the book and it sounds perfect for the content! It is so nice to look at books without words. The pictures tell their own story and the story can be read aloud to someone and changed over and over again. :)

Thanks for sharing!
