Henrik's Quiet Book

Today's book is the second quiet book I get to show you made by Tiffany of Always Sewin' Somethin! This is a book she made for her friend's son Henrik.

I love how bright and colorful each page of this book is. The cover is fantastic - I love the bright letters that spell out his name, and the fact that they're on snaps you can snap on and off. What a great idea to have even the cover have an activity! And all of the inside pages are great as well. Tiffany's shape page is so smart - in addition to to the shapes themselves, she's sewn little pictures of things that use the shape. For example, next to the triangle is a triangle-shaped tent. Really cute and fun. :)

This is just such a colorful, cute book, and I hope you enjoy it!
