Me All Day
Wherever you are, you only need a flat surface, the size of a handkerchief, to start playing with this lightweight, portable, fabric based, handmade, 100% sewn quiet book by Jolly Designs.
Me All Day is a great start point to talk about all day routines and recreate them. The “let’s see what we do all day” kinds.
The book opens up to the little girl’s home that is sweet, modest and full of love. She can be moved from page to page while playing pretend and almost every page has a pocket to hold her – the bed, the bathtub, the dining table and the chair for example. Considering children hold special interest in logistics, that they love searching through small pockets, packing things in and out and carefully hiding their treasures, the book has been designed to include lots of pockets… disguised ones too.
Are you considering moving into this beautifully crafted house made of fabric and felt? What are you waiting for then? The window on this page can be doubled up as a photo slot to store a passport size photograph of your child.
Pages 1 and 2:
You will find the bedroom on the left page and bath on the right. The window holds a detachable, reversible felt piece that depicts Day and Night. A comfortable bed, pillow, favourite book and night lamp on the bedside table completes the warm setting of the room.
While on the bath page, you can get the little girl to brush, bath and dry herself. The pastel colour palette elevating the bath setting is something that should not be missed here.
Pages 3 and 4:
On the left is the little girl’s closet. Won’t you help her pick an outfit?
The laundry room on the right includes a washing machine, cloth line, and an iron counter. Working with peg clips and snap buttons can be fun ways to strengthen fine motor skills while playing pretend.
Pages 5 and 6:
Dining hall on the left has a fully filled refrigerator with rainbow coloured fruits and vegetables. Sequence them and sort them into fruits and vegetables.
A plate and cup on the shelf above are detachable and can be placed on the dining table while the little girl gets ready to eat.
On the right side is the play and park page that has a slide, a lady bird (which is also a finger puppet) on a bright yellow flower and three other flowers on different clasps for some fine motor practice.
Me All Day is designed, built, landscaped and sewn by passionate hands. All the parts of this book are handmade. At the end of the book is a zipper pocket – a place for everything so there aren’t loose pieces to keep track of when putting them away.
