Just about everyone knows a super quiet kiddo. He usually has a wealth of knowledge because of his ability to watch and listen. We’ve also experienced a little ball-of-energy-kiddo who can’t stop talking; she becomes the life of any room she steps into.
In Quiet Wyatt, Wyatt is that super quiet kiddo. He is a model student and athletic with a special gift—a stealthy one. One day his class goes on a field trip. His teacher pairs him with the liveliest girl in class—Noreen. Wyatt is nervous; he’s quiet and Noreen is the opposite, but he accepts his fate—quietly.
Noreen knows everything—at least she thinks she does. She takes charge of their group, and Wyatt is quiet, but something happens. Noreen is not being careful; she’s too busy being her energetic self. Wyatt can no longer be quiet. He has to use his special gift.
I recommend this book to teachers, students, and parents. Wyatt’s journey is one that many endure. Wyatt must come out of his shell. He must learn to work with someone who is not like him—that does not think as he does. Isn’t that what all educators and parents want to instill in their children?
