I made this when Carrie was not even two years old - gosh, over 24 years ago now! Looking through the book, I was reminded of how much love went into every detail. I loved making this book for Carrie, and I remember feeling so excited to finish it so she could play with it.
All of the little pieces are attached to the book so they wouldn't get lost. The little doll is about 3" tall and can be used throughout the book in one way or another. I remember that Carrie played with this book for hours, and it was great to have for road trips or airplane trips to Grandma Marti's house.
There's a car for Little Miss Dolly to ride in...
And a house to come home to...
The door has a snap to hold it closed, and for Carrie to practice her snapping skills.
There's also a pocket holding colored shapes to match up. Little Miss Dolly used to spend time in this pocket too.
There's a bathtub, complete with a towel and rubber ducky...
And when the day is done, there's a cozy little bed for Miss Dolly to rest in.
And that, my friends, is The Quiet Book. A labor of love for my sweet little Carrie.
