I Love You - Busy Book Pattern

A fabric book that will help little ones learn and have fun! Featuring a sweet Teddy Bear and a rhyming story, this project uses fusible machine applique and is a great scrap-buster. Measures:22.5x22.5cm(9x9in) As well as loving crafty things, Fiona (the designer) is a qualified Early Childhood Educator, so knows that as well being fun to read, this book can encourage a child’s development like this: Eye-hand co-ordination – is practiced by lifting, zipping, pulling, bouncing, pressing, opening and closing. Language is practiced while talking about the pages. Words can be used to describe colours, teddies, and actions – “zip”, “bounce”, “open”. The rhyming story encourages storytelling and a love of books. Imagination is developed as stories about Teddy are created. The simple repetition encourages memory development, and shapes, colours and movements are learned. Social/Emotional – reading is a key activity that encourages a bond between the reader and the child. Gentle, rhythmic reading can help a child to settle after a busy day.
