Ruthie's Quiet Books

Today I get to share with you two quiet books made by Ruth of the blog Simply Ruthie for her friends' twin toddlers. These quiet books are twins themselves - similar at first glance, but each is unique. Each cover has the name of the twin whose book it is; once you open it up, you find tic tac toe pages (one with clouds and suns, one with flowers and butterflies), fruit trees (one with apples, one with oranges), barns (each full of finger puppets), shape matching and bead counting, ladybug clocks, and "under the sea" pages. The back covers have pockets for little dolls.

I like so much about these quiet books, starting with the fact that they mirror each other, but each has its own unique details. I think my favorite page is the orange tree page - it's such a fun twist on the traditional apple tree page and I like how bright the oranges are. I also really like the blue and white background on that page that makes it look like there's a sky. Each of the pages in these books looks so fun to play with, and I am sure that the twins are going to enjoy them a lot.

Thank you so much for sharing your cute quiet books with us, Ruthie!
