homemade books

One of my favorite ways to help little people learn vocabulary and to remember events is to create personalized homemade books.  I used to make these a lot in the classroom whether it was after a field trip, to document a specific play episode, or to showcase children and their families.  These homemade books always became the children's favorite books to read on their own and were often topics of their conversations.

Here is an example of the book I made for the little person I am nannying after we visited the zoo.
