Make your own special book for your baby that introduces new people, objects, or concepts.
What You Need:
- Clear, adhesive contact paper or book cover (optional)
- Yarn or ribbon
What To Do:
- Find photos of family members and close friends.
- Cut the cardboard into equal size pages.
- Glue a photo onto each cardboard page.
- Make holes on one side of each page and thread yarn or ribbon through the holes; tie the pages together.
- 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."
- 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.
