Quiet Book

My mom started making a quiet book when she was pregnant with my oldest sister (in the 70's). I happened to find it when I was at her house this summer. I asked her about it and she said I could have it. Mind you, I'm no where near the sewing guru she is. In fact, I'm an Dopey (for SnowWhite) and she's Einstin when it comes to sewing. Anyway, I added a few pages and put the entire book together. Here is my finished project.
Quiet Book Cover
(I bound and covered the book)
Numbers Page
Each pocket has the corresponding number inside.
(I made this one)
Hair Page
You can do the girls hair. Hair ties and bows go in the heart pocket on her shirt.
(I made this one)
Cowboy Page
The cactus comes off.
(mom made this one)
Apple Tree
Apples come off and can go in the basket.
(mom made this one)
Lace up Girl
You can lace up and tie the girl's dress. Also, the bird comes off.
(I just added the shoe lace)
Horse Page
Both the sun and horse come off.
(mom made this one)
Egg Page
The chick can come in and out of the egg.
(Mom made this one)
Bear Page
This page has 2 pockets. One for pens and one for paper.
(Mom made the bear, I just added the ribbon)

Flower Page
You can remove the watering can and the flower petals.
(I just added the buttons)
Mailbox Page
You can put letters or pictures drawn into the mailbox.
(Mom designed it I just cut out the peices and put it together)
Street Sign Shapes
Each sign can be removed and put onto another page with a road map.
(mom had the stop sign done, I did the rest. I want to write the shape name under each one. Still not finished I guess)

Fishing Pond
Each fish can be removed from it's pocket. It has a magnet attached to it's mouth and also a magnet at the end of the fishing pole.
(Madi loves this one. It was all me)

Road Map
The cars come off and can go into the garage. There are random velcro spots for street signs or cars.
(mom made the road and teplates for the cars and garage. I love this one)
