We love, love, love making our own books! I keep a stash of various blank books with the girls’ art supplies. They put stickers in them, write/draw stories, collect animal facts, copy words from favorite books, and on and on. You’re never too young to be author!
If you need some inspiration, here are some links to books we’ve made, plus good stuff from around the web. Enjoy!
