Harry Potter Quiet Book

I made a Harry Potter Quiet Book for my nephew for Christmas. This is what I've been working on all month. I put in lots of joyful hours into this book. I used mostly felt, my sewing machine, and lots of hand sewing.
To see a cooler Star Wars quiet book go here and here. You can buy the kit to make it here. Let's read the book together.
Cover (Don't turn me in for copying the letters. I'm not making any money from this.)
First page: Is this Harry Potter?  Lift his bangs to see his scar.

Second Page: Help Harry go through the wall. He slides along into the wall.

Third Page: Can you hold the wand? The glove is for small hands.

Fourth page: Help Hagrid with his coat. Buttoning and un-buttoning his coat.

Fifth Page: Feel Dumbledore's soft beard. I put fleece on his beard.
Sixth Page: Count the people in the Weasley family.
Seventh Page: Help the sorting hat. The sorting hat can go on each head.
Eighth Page: You've got mail. Tie and untie the bow from the mail.
Ninth Page: Catch the Snitch. Slide Harry to the snitch.
Tenth Page: Where is Harry? Unzip the zipper. (He's wearing the invisibility cloak.)
