When I grow up, I will invent medicine for sick children. Or I will think of a new favourite recipe every day. When I grow up, I will have my own car repair shop. Then I will repair tractors or the fire brigade if it is broken. When I grow up, I will teach children to read and write. Or I’ll work on a crane, so I can look over the roofs of the city and count clouds. When I grow up, I will fly a spaceship. Once around the earth and back again.
Our Quiet Book about professions is a 21cm x 21cm quiet book made of high-quality felt.
Whether on a construction site or in a spaceship, whether as a teacher, fireman, car repair shop, cook, hospital or farm – on eight lovingly designed pages your child can slip into different roles and find out more about the respective activities. Many elaborately worked details train the fine motor skills by opening and closing, different fasteners and possibilities for pulling, turning and pushing.
Our design team has come up with many extras – the blanket under which the finger puppet can slip, the pot to look into while cooking, the tractor trailer that can be tilted and much more. Starting from our cloth book, countless little stories can be told, perfect for long train rides or rainy afternoons on the sofa. A very special highlight are the two finger puppets, a girl and a boy, which are also ideal for role playing together with siblings or friends.
As with every Quiet Book by Jolly Designs, all detachable parts have their place in the book and a practical bag in which they can be stored. So that nothing can fall out, the fabric book is closed simply and conveniently with a Velcro fastener.
Our tip: You can support your child in the play by paying attention to gender-neutral wording and including alternatives in your conversation. Especially for small children, we often find it easier to simply name the place where they work instead of the job title. So instead of car mechanic, it is a car repair shop, and instead of teacher, it is school.
