Maria's Princess Quiet Book

Today's quiet book is absolutely fantastic. Made by Maria, a kindergarten teacher, it is princess-themed, and just so detailed and adorable. The front cover looks like a castle, and opens up to another castle scene complete with horse-drawn carriage. As the pages go on children are able to change the weather through a window, practice numbers on a clock, play dress up, hang up laundry on a laundry line, put food together for a picnic, do puzzles, build a cake and decorate it with candles, play with a telephone, and put on a finger puppet show. It is a really remarkable book.

  1. Nice blog and so informative thank you for sharing us.

  2. Awesome article. You can create different patterns for Quiet books. My first quiet book for toddlers that I've made after weeks of looking for ideas, patterns, planning and determining how it is done. But, I loved the method of creating and I fall in deep love with what quiet book represents. After that, I made numerous quiet books and designed my own patterns. Consequently, I am sharing my experience and knowledge here with you.
