First at all, craft all the book pages. Then sew them together to make the book.
You can sew the pages with lots of small details by hand.

Decorate the pages with different cute and funny appliques - butterflies, birds, clouds, smiley faces, houses, trees, etc.
Hide the beads to the clouds under the cloth - you will ask your little one to find the "rain drops" touching and palpating them with fingers.
