Happy World Book Day!
The Sound of Silence

By Katrina Goldsaito, illustrated by Julia Kuo

“Do you have a favorite sound?” little Yoshio asks. The musician answers, “The most beautiful sound is the sound of ma, of silence.”

But Yoshio lives in Tokyo, Japan: a giant, noisy, busy city. He hears shoes squishing through puddles, trains whooshing, cars beeping, and families laughing. Tokyo is like a symphony hall!

Where is silence?

Join Yoshio on his journey through the hustle and bustle of the city to find the most beautiful sound of all.

This is such a wonderfully serene picture book and journey through Tokyo to find the silence within… all ages
