Quiet Please Owen McPhee!

Quiet Please Owen McPhee!  Trudy Ludwig is the story of a boy who just loves to talk. Over the course of a week, we see that Owen’s constant chatter is not always appreciated. The day Owen gets laryngitis is revelatory. He has to write down his ideas, go a little more slowly and depend on others to get things done. This book is a gentle reinforcement of the value of listening to everyone.
