Linibau's Quiet Book

Today's quiet book comes to us from Linibau of the blog Trapeando. It is so cute and has some great and unique details. Starting right off, the cover has a flower that, when you lift up the center, you find a picture of the little girl the quiet book was made for. Linibau's book also has a really cute shoe-tying page, a princess dress-up page (with adorable doll, wardrobe, and clothes - I love the little triangle banner!), a tic-tac-toe page, a hair-braiding page, a cookies page that teaches color and shapes, a cupcake baking page, a picnic page (with a picnic basket full of food and a picnic blanket where you can assemble the meal), a counting page with strings of unique, awesome beads (cupcakes, crayons, strawberries, etc.), and an I-Spy page. This book has so many activities and looks so fun. Enjoy!
