When Willow speaks, her words slip out as soft and shy as a secret. At school, her barely audible whisper causes her no end of troubles. But Willow is as resourceful as she is quiet, and she fashions a magic microphone from items she finds in the recycling bin. But Willow's clever invention is only a temporary solution. How will this quiet little girl make herself heard?

Lana Button works in early childhood education. Her writing has been published in Ladybug magazine and Today’s Parent. Willow’s Whispers is Lana’s first book for Kids Can Press.

Tania Howells’s illustrations have appeared in Chirp and Today’s Parent, among other publications. She is the illustrator of Berkeley’s Barn Owl Dance and Willow’s Whispers.Tania lives in Toronto, Ontario.

A victory for any reader who struggles to be heard, even metaphorically.
Kirkus Reviews

Limited text and simple sentences, combined with a strong character who solves her own problems, make this a successful selection.
School Library Journal

Shy, quiet kids will take heart at Willow's small victories.
Quill & Quire

There is nothing cloying about the sweetness of this book. The playful use of font sizes, the simply drawn, brightly colored figures and, most of all, the perfect pitch of its text, see to that.
