Days [ ) Quietness | Margaret Wise Brown, 1910-1952


John Gutmann, Chinese Kids at Lunch Counter, San Francisco, 1938

“In this modern world where activity is stressed almost to the point of mania, quietness as a childhood need is too often overlooked. Yet a child’s need for quietness is the same today as it has always been–it may even be greater–for quietness is an essential part of all awareness. In quiet times and sleepy times a child can dwell in thoughts of his own, and in songs and stories of his own.”

 Margaret Wise Brown, 1910-1952
