Quiet Time Book

By this time, you probably know what a creative genius my mom is. No? Click here and here for a reminder. Pretty cool, huh?

This time though, she totally outdid herself.

When I forwarded my mom a video of a quiet time book in January, I have to admit it wasn’t even a subtle hint. I was preparing to rewrite The Physician’s Apprentice and I could use something to occupy Kayla for those moments when I had to work. So when Mom told me she’s going to try to make a book, I was ecstatic. I mean, I knew it would be good.

I never imagined she’d make this.

It literally took 6 months to make. I have no idea of the cost involved, but I imagine it was a pretty penny. And my mom’s poor hands and shoulder suffered for this work of art.

Prepare to feast your eyes on the mother of all quiet time books.



Oh no, these aren’t all of the pages.

As I knew photos wouldn’t do this thing justice, I shot a little video. It’s under 2 minutes, so please have a look when you have a moment. You have to see the sheer detail involved to appreciate it.

You can imagine Kayla adores this thing. It’s been over a month since we’ve been back in Germany, and still not a day has gone by where she hasn’t played with the book.

Mom, thank you for taking the time to make this incredible gift. We’re still awestruck. It boggles my mind and it stimulates Kay’s. You’re fantabulous! We love you so much!

Have a good one, folks!
