Children are lovely, but when they start fussing, they can get on one’s nerves rather easily. Especially if they are not your children. There are some parents who are fortunate enough to have really well behaved kids, but it is always a good idea to have something that will keep them busy on certain occasions. When kids have something interesting to do and are not bored, the chances are that they will behave very well.
Growing up, you probably had your own favorite quiet book. You probably thought it pretty cool. I bet, though, that your favorite quiet book will not measure up to this awesome find of a quiet book: the Star Trek quiet book!
This Star Trek quiet book is the brilliant creation of blogger juliebell, who is getting ready for her own baby. Naturally, a quiet book is in her list of things to do for her child, but she didn’t want just any kind of quiet book. She wanted to try her hand at making a quiet book that is sci-fi themed. And, according to her (and to the hordes of Trekkies out there), what can be more fun than Star Trek in the sci-fi world? And so the Star Trek quiet book was born.
How cool is that? And that is just the cover! I can already see myself quieting down the moment the book is placed in my hands! If the cover is not enough to impress you, take a look at the second page.
More than keeping the kids quiet and behaved while waiting for the doctor to see them, this quiet book is rather educational. The kids get to learn about what may very well be the greatest in science fiction. They can meet the characters – or some of them, at least.
Without a doubt, this page is my favorite.
The really cool this is that this page actually has that glove that little kids can put on. Nothing like teaching them how to do the Vulcan Salute early on!
There are so many more awesome pages in this quiet book that can help calm down kids and help develop their skills as well. See the entire Star Trek quiet book on juliebell’s blog.
