A Quiet Book or Busy Book is a "book" made of fabric and felt in which each page has a little activity for the reader to do like buttoning a button, doing up a zipper, matching things with velrco, tying bows, etc. It is fun for the kids and great practice for doing all of these kinds of things. It's also nice for the parents to have a place for them to practice.

|Lastly, Homemade by Jill is a blog I have been reading for a while now and Jill amazes me with the beautiful things she sews for her kids. I love the idea of the name attached with buttons, AND the New York page! She is so creative. See the whole book here.|
