2.Next, gather some photos of people who are familiar to your baby—mommy, daddy, grandparents, aunties, uncles, etc.
3.Glue each photo, including one of your baby, on separate pieces of paper, and use her page for the cover of the book.
4.Bind the pages together with a stapler or punch holes in the pages and tie them together with yarn.
5.On the front cover (the page with baby’s photo) ,write the title of the book and include your baby’s name. For example, “Jessi, Jessi, Who Do You See?”
6.On each of the following pages, write the name of the person in the photo using the rhythm text. For example, “I see Daddy looking at me. Daddy, Daddy, who do you see?”
7.Continue writing on each page, using the name of the person in the photo and end the story with, “I see my family looking at me. That’s who I see.”
8.Read the story to your baby and point out all the people who are familiar to her. Make reading this book part of your routine, either before bedtime or when she wakes up.
