Just before our son turned 1 year old, he started to become quite the handful at church. Jennifer remembered a great quiet book from her childhood that kept her busy on many Sundays. We decided to make our son a quiet book of his own for his first birthday, but when we went to look for a pattern, we couldn't find anything that seemed right. They all seemed either too simple - basically just a fabric book, or too dangerous - to first time parents all those buttons looked like a trip to the emergency room. So we made our own pattern. We were so happy with the finished book, we just had to share it with others. That was the beginning of CopyCrafts.

We love quiet books as gifts - they are almost the perfect toy. Colorful, interactive, good for many stages of development, impossible to make a mess with, and very portable.
