I finished Oscar's quiet book just in time for our long flight west back in May, but hadn't taken photos of it until this morning. To those of you who have been eager to see it, sorry to keep you waiting!
I kept the front cover simple, with just a cute fabric and button closure. I'm hoping to get mileage out of this from more than one child, so I didn't want "oscar" plastered everywhere (um, besides multiple pages). :)
The big back pocket holds the felt city pieces, and any other goodies I might slip in.
Thanks to some clever comments on earlier posts, I decided to bind the book using rings (great idea, lyndsay!). This will come in handy when I need to add more pages later, and for when I have multiple kids and need to pass a page or two down the pew. I'm planning to replace the metal rings with plastic ones ... just haven't found them yet.
Here are all the finished pages as they are laid out in the book:
Oscar likes looking at the pages and occasionally tries to destroy them. (Must.have.rocketship!)
Most of the pages are way too advanced for him at this point. When all else fails, he just eats it. :)
