About the book: When the wiggles come and boredom strikes, it can be difficult for little ones to sit through long church meetings. Reverently, Quietly not only keeps boredom at bay, but also instructs and invites the Spirit. Containing drawing activities, matching games, and coloring pages, all Church-centered, this is a quiet book that all children will enjoy!
My Review: This is a fun quiet book meant to be used during Sacrament meetings. But this is not your normal quiet book. It's creative and different because the pages are meant to be used kind of interactively with the meeting. There are pages where the kids tell the song numbers on the song boards, they might be asked to color the Bishop's tie with the same pattern the Bishop is actually wearing or to write down what the speaker is speaking about. I like that it kind of focuses the kids on the meeting verses just on the scripture story or the coloring. I can't wait to use this one in our Sacrament meetings!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the author: Pamela R. Jensen was born into a family of 10 children, she was the oldest girl and second child. She spent a majority of her childhood entertaining her younger siblings. Drawing has always been apart of who she is, always sketching anything and everything. She can remember getting into trouble for drawing on the walls. She now lives with her husband a retired farmer and miner in Grantsville, UT. They have five children, and ten grandchildren who love to draw with grandma. I sketch and draw because I can’t stop. She tells her grandchildren, put a pencil or a pen in my hand and it automatically starts to draw, almost without thinking. She has made some pretty impressive doodles in her time.
