Quiet Books

Quiet books are inexpensive to make and are amazing tools for developing your little one’s finger dexterity (or fine motor control). They give children the opportunity to practice and improve their self-help skills through activities such as lacing, buttoning, and using zippers – all without being rushed to get out the front door. Your little one’s newfound independence will prove most helpful when school starts.

This quiet book belongs to one of our members.

It was made from children’s clothes, sewn over foam core squares, and assembled with ribbon.

This one was made using ring clips. Or why not try a 3-ring binder?

The possibilities are endless.

Pinterest is a great source of inspiration if you want to create one of these books yourself.  They can be as simple or as intricate as you like: machine sewn, hand-stitched or made with felt and fabric glue.

So even if you’re not a sewer, you can do this!

Thanks for reading.
