Homemade Books

Children have very active imaginations. Of course mine are no exception. So, I think I'm going to start writing down some of their made up stories. We'll turn them into homemade books. They'll draw their own pictures. For the sake of legibility, I will write the words. Then they can read their own very special books. In fact, I just may turn some of their stories into books for publication. How cool would that be for your child to go to the library and see a book that he or she wrote sitting on a shelf. Better yet, how proud would they be to see other kids reading them? That's going to be one of our "it's too hot/cold/rainy to go outside" projects. Guess I should stock up on craft supplies. I think I'll use those gift cards I've been carrying around for the past five years.

  1. I think it's awesome that you are going to write down your kids stories. Not only are kids full of good stories, because of parents like you, they'll become people who love to write!
