keep a child busy with this fun and quiet book
The idea of the quiet books is that is something soft and quiet but interesting and creative enough to keep a child busy while you get groceries or go on a drive. Fill it up with whatever activities tickles your fancy. The basic premises is the same on every page. There is one felt item that is glue down in the book, and the other felt items have velcro so they can be moved at will.
