This insect quiet book is the latest addition to our bookshelf!  Apart from this, we already have 4 such folders with a lot of activities. Ever since I made my first book when my daughter was 18 months, Quiet books are one of my toddler’s favorite time pass.

If you are new to quiet books, these are interactive pages to keep your kids busy or quiet for a little while. They are perfect when you are waiting at the doctor’s, traveling in a plane, or any other time you need to distract your toddler.

Here is a video of our insect quiet/busy book.
