Make the little one in your life a special keepsake that promotes fine motor skills, practices learning concepts, and engages the imagination.
Collect all of the monthly themed page kits to make your own Calendar Quiet Book! Children will learn the months of the year, while also practicing fine motor skills (snapping, zipping, tying bows, weaving), colors, shapes, letter and number recognition, and counting. There is also plenty of opportunity for imaginative and creative play!
There are 18 pages in the book, plus the cover.

Kailan is a stay at home mom, turned work at home mom of 2. Before that, she was a 2nd grade teacher. She is passionate about screen-free activities, learning through play, creating with felt, and helping others with sewing projects! She started her own business after her first Quiet Book swap with friends was successful. She organizes swap groups with people from all over the country to make quiet books in an easier, more cost-effective way. You can also find sewing page kits, templates, and felt story sets in her online shop.
You may cancel your subscription at any time if you decide it isn't for you.
The book will be much more durable if it is sewn. You can hand stitch or use a sewing machine!
No, tools are not included. You will need a heavy duty hole puncher, grommet tool to hammer the grommets, and the snap pliers to install snaps (but this one is optional). The tools can either be purchased on my website here or will be linked in the instructions on where you can find them.
If you order before the 28th of the month, your kit will ship on the 1st. If you order between the 28th and 1st of the month, you missed the cut off and will begin with the next month's page kit.
No. You will start with whatever upcoming month it is. The cover kit ships on September 1.
Some pages contain small pieces which could be choking hazards, so it's great for ages 3-6. If you remove the small pieces, 2 year olds would love this book too! I've even had subscribers start making it early so the child will have it when he/she is ready.
