Welcome back to another week of Blogging Through the Alphabet! I am glad that you are able to join Kirsten from DoodleMom and DaLynn from Biblical Womanhood as we work on the letter Q this week! This letter always proves to be difficult for me, but focusing on books, made it a little harder. However, I think I found a great book that is great for the younger kids.
Have you heard of quiet books? These fun little books that are full of different activities to keep young kids busy when they need to be quiet. I loved to have them in the diaper bag for when we were busy someplace, but couldn’t have a lot of toys usually at church.
You can find many different varieties of these books. At Wal-Mart, Usborne Books, Amazon, Carter’s, etc. You want to find a quiet book, you don’t have to look too hard. And if you are crafty enough, you can make your own from some simple materials.
I love having quiet books around when the kids want to get their hands on something. Little kids always want to have their hands on something. I love the ones that add in fun activities, simple learning skills like zippers, matching, and many other fun things. Letting the kids have fun, be quiet and learn are great things to have on hand whenever you may have some downtime.
I had no idea what quiet books were until I was given one when Ray Ray was born. A quick Pinterest search shows so many great ideas that there is no excuse why you shouldn’t have one in your bag for your kids as well!
Do you have a quiet book? What is your favorite part of it?
