To make a quiet book to celebrate the Christmas season, here's one site which is very helpful:

I love the fun element of looking underneath to see his drawers!

There are lots of ideas to make a super book.  Perhaps there could be pages which are just fun to look at with lots of detail to talk about with a toddler, like this idea:

The page above could involve counting, such as:
  1. Christmas tree
  2. Rugs/cats into front of the fire
  3. Parcels on floor
  4. Stockings hanging up
  5. Baubles on the tree

Another idea for counting could be like this as it's always nice to have a bit of fun as the reindeer slides up and down:

Christmas busy books can involve lots of subjects, things to do with Christmas itself and also to do with the winter season, such as:

*  The Nativity could show the manger, baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Shepherds, Wise Men, Star, animals - and angels of course.

*  The Christmas season, with parcels, stars, Christmas tree, decorations such as baubles and garlands;  stockings, Christmas puddings, roof tops, Father Christmas, sleigh, night sky, holly, ivy, mistletoe, glitter and reindeer.

*  Winter: bare trees, snow, penguins, robins, coats, mittens, boots, hats, snowballs and snowman.
