Looseleaf Quiet Book

Young mothers may “recycle” old household magazines by making from them a very inexpensive “Quiet Book.”

Let your child pick out his favorite pictures and glue them on either 3″ x 5″ or 5″ x 7″ index cards. Punch holes in the corners, then slip a ring through to hold them together. Of course, appropriate comments can be made beside each picture, or even a continuous story—whatever delights your child.

Pages can be added or subtracted as desired. My daughter and I have fun working together on this book, and she hardly ever tires of her very own, handmade (and renewable!) “Quiet Book.” Gayla Myers, Wolf Point, Montana
