Avid 'Lord of the Ring' fans who want to introduce the world of Middle-earth to their children can do so in an appropriate fashion with The Quiet Book and the Ring. Like the similar 'Star Trek Quiet Book,' it is an interactive felt book that will engage little ones instantly. Although it only gives them a taste of the storyline and characters, it is the perfect precursor to the real deal.

Created by Julie Gillrie, the Redwood City-based founder of the juliebell Etsy shop, The Quiet Book and the Ring is a downloadable pattern that can then be created at home. Whether a fun project with children or the perfect Christmas gift, it is bound to put smiles on faces. The felt characters in the books can even be used as independent toys.
