Quiet Book: It's Done!!!

It's done!  I think it took me a little over a month to do, but the Quiet Book I made for Little Guy is completed (for now)!  There are lots of pictures.  I hope you enjoy looking at this Quiet Book as much as I do!

Here is the front cover.  The flap has velcro to keep it closed.  Don't you love this fabric?  I love the bright colors to get Little Guy's attention.  The handles are made of felt, and are just the right size for him to carry his book.

The back cover is equally as cute!  There is a little pocket on the back to hold things, like the car for the road page.  I got the basic pattern for the cover and how to put together the pages from Adventures of Our Family.

The first page has Little Guy's name in blue letters (not shown).  They attach to the page with velcro, so he can practice spelling his name.

Get ready to play ball!  Count the beads and shoot a basket!

The number page is really interactive, as not only are the numbers attached with velcro, but you can also move the beads.
Daddy is a big basketball fan, so we had to include this great sport!  The basketballs come out of the ball rack and can be put through the hoop.

 Next we practice colors and shapes.

The shape page is all snaps.  We will practice colors now and shapes later.  I love how this book will grow with Little Guy!
The zipper page, although not very exciting, is sure to be a favorite of Little Guy's, as he LOVES to zip!

Beep, beep! Coming through!
The road and car pages will be fun!  The car will be stored in the back pocket.

Don't be scared!  The dinosaur is next, along with the kite!

The dinosaur's spots and spines all have snaps.  He also has a zipper on his back, turning him into a pocket!  The template is from Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows.

The kite page might just be the neatest page!  Inside each kite piece is a magnet, and there is a magnet hot glued onto the page.  The kite puzzle pieces can go on in any order, as well as either direction (there is no front or back).  Daddy helped with this page!  The original pattern is from Serving Pink Lemonade.

Time to visit the farm!

Apple picking is fun.  The apples have snaps and go in the basket.   I wonder how long until an apple is snapped where the sun goes?  The template is from Adventures of Our Family.

Don't forget to stop in the barn.  Open the doors to see the chicken, pig, and cow finger puppets.  The template is from Homemade by Jill.

Mail call!

The mailbox holds a small pad of paper to write notes on.  Don't forget to put up the flag!  The template is from Homemade by Jill.

Want to pick some flowers?  This will be great fine motor practice to take the flowers off and on the buttons.  The template is from Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows.

Don't forget your tool chest!

The tool page was the last page to be completed, although that is not why it is last.  I think Little Guy will be a great fan of the tools!

So that is the Quiet Book for now.  It is held together with binder rings, which makes it so I can add and take out pages.  Already have a few more in mind (thinking about a birthday cake)! 

What's in your Quiet Book?
