Reviewer: Allison Martin

Be Quiet, Marina! is the story of two young girls who learn to play together in preschool. Both girls have special needs; Marina has mild cerebral palsy and Moira has Down syndrome. They enjoy many of the same things in school, playing with dolls, dancing and dressing up. But Marina gets very noisy when she is upset and this bothers Moira. They become good friends and play happily together as Moira learns to tell Marina when her screaming bothers her, and Marina learns to find other ways to express her frustration. Be Quiet, Marina! has wonderful illustrations and a realistic story told with sympathy. This book is appropriate for any regular or special needs preschool and kindergarten, or for your home. A gentle way to introduce the concepts of moderating noise and behavior with your friends, and of standing up for yourself.
