It had been a while since I had made Gracen a photo book, so a couple of weeks ago, I selected some photos (the hardest part when you have as many as I do) to make her a knock-off version of the Usborne That’s Not My…. books. If you haven’t come across these books yet, you should really check them out. They’re short, simple stories with strong repetition, touch and feel parts, and bold, colourful illustrations.
I actually first fell in love with them when my friend and teaching partner at the time was selling Usborne and read one aloud at a book party. It was probably the best read aloud I’ve listened to before in my life. Since moving to Vancouver, we started signing them out from our local libraries, and they’ve quickly become family favourites.
Here are some pages from the version I whipped up for Miss G… (Please forgive my made up words in advance. ☺)
Gracen LOVES this new little book. (What’s not to like – it’s all about her!)
The best part is that these books are super easy to put together, can be added to at any time, and can easily be reprinted if needed. Not to mention that they put some of those photos just sitting on the computer to good use too!
