Ana Maria's Quiet Book

Ola! Today's quiet book comes to us from Brazil, made by Ana Maria. She made this adorable book for her friend's two-year-old, with letters on each page spelling out his name through the book. Each letter has an animal whose name (in Portuguese) matches the letter. "H" for hipopotamo, "E" for elefante, "I" for iguana, "T" for tatu, "O" for ovelha, and "R" for rato. She also wrote a personal message on the back cover for him, and included helpful pictures that show how she bound her pages together once she had made them.

Please enjoy!
