Baby’s Own Book PDF FACEBOOK SHARE ICON.

Make your own special book for your baby that introduces new people, objects, or concepts.

What You Need:


  • Glue

  • Cardboard

  • Clear, adhesive contact paper or book cover (optional)

  • Yarn or ribbon

What To Do:


  1. Find photos of family members and close friends.

  2. Cut the cardboard into equal size pages.

  3. Glue a photo onto each cardboard page.

  4. Make holes on one side of each page and thread yarn or ribbon through the holes; tie the pages together.

  5. Hold your baby and show him the pictures. Point to each picture and talk about it. For example, "Who's that? That's sister! Sister is wearing a red shirt." Whenever possible, relate the pictures to your child's own life: "Look, you have on a red shirt, too."

  6. Read the book often. It is sure to be one of baby's favorites!


Optional: Cover each page with clear contact paper to make the book last longer.
