Here are the first pages of Quiet Book Round II -
Peek-a- Boo Page. Pull back the mittens to play peek-a-boo with the boy. Lift the boy's face to play peek-a-boo with baby!
Lift the Flap House
It was a tricky finding a house that would have enough windows for the entire family, while still fitting on the page. His four brothers "live" on the top floor, mom and dad are behind the windows on the first floor and you see baby when you open the door.
The puppy page did not quite come out how I had envisioned. I wanted to use faux fur to give some texture, but I don't like the way the pattern makes the puppies mouth look strange. This page gives practice clasping and unclasping the collar. I like that the collar has a button to release it as opposed to sides that need to be squeezed. I'm considering adding a leash to the bindng of the book that can be attached to the metal rings.
The puppies' body is a pocket to hold the food that snaps into the bowl. My older boys have already shown me how the dog food can serve a dual purpose. BOYS!!!!
The weaving page is a classic that appeared in the quiet book my mom made, as well as Quiet Book Round I. This is my favorite page and never fails to keep me entertained when the speakers get boring.
The piggy bank page is everywhere and I had to try my own version.
The spaghetti chef was something I really wanted to try, but had no idea how to make it work. A little trial and error taught me that I could not put wonder-under beneath the entire face and hat. I needed to leave a tube that was non-fusible so that the yard could travel back and forth freely. The button on the chef's hat pulls the yarn through and makes it appear that the chef is slurping up all the spaghetti. The yard can be pulled back through and clustered in the bowl to look like bowlful of noodles.
