Love the illustrations and story. Typical Sarah Stewart where the tale unfolds through letters or diary entries. In this, a young child moves from Mexico to the United States. She sends letters back to her aunt in Mexico telling her of all the things she's learned, is doing, and how the family is getting along in their new settings. ( )

By reading the postcards from a young girl to her aunt in Mexico, readers learn about the hardships and joys of being an immigrant in the United States during the 1950s. Center Foldout.

As in Stewart and Small’s previous The Gardener (1997) and The Journey (2001), letters to a loved one become the vehicle for a girl to explore what she sees, feels and comes to understand upon leaving home for the first time.

In this title, a family of four is moving from Mexico to America in 1957. Their poignant, pre-dawn departure starts on the endpapers. Small’s imaginative use of color and masterful variation of line combine to focus attention on Isabel’s expressive face while developing other characters and creating a convincing period with Formica countertops and big-finned cars. Silent spreads allow readers time to ponder her predicament and imagine their own reactions. As the epistles to Auntie Lupita chronicle Isabel’s encounter with snow, feelings about her new teacher and time spent at the children’s parties her mother caters, they also indirectly portray a family sensitive to a child’s well-being. When Isabel requests the big boxes left over from the parties, her family supports her special sanctuary as needed; decorated with paint, origami and cardboard rainspouts reminiscent of the clay gutters back home, her quiet place turns into a panorama of festivities on her birthday, when a double gatefold reveals many new friends.

A warm, gentle portrait of an immigrant’s isolation and the ways that creativity and a loving family can offer both a safe haven and a bridge. (Picture book. 4-8) (Review from Kirkus Book Reviews

The Quiet Place was a great book about a young girl moving to Michigan from Mexico. Isabel is having trouble adjusting to her new country as well as learning the language of English. Isabel writes to her Auntie Lupita to practice her English writing and to find comfort back home in Mexico. She writes to her Auntie Lupita about her daily ups and downs and how she is adjusting to this journey.
This story is a good eye-opener to see how foreign things are when someone moves from a different country, and the trials and tribulations they go through. ( )

43 months - my favorite author and illustrator combination. LOVE! Great story written in letter form with beautiful illustrations. A must read along with many of Sarah Stewarts other books.... The Gardener, The Library, and The Money Tree. ( )
