All About Me Book


All About Me Book

[20 Minutes]

Help your child experience the power of the written language by creating an "All About Me" book.

You'll need:

• child safety scissors • glue/tape • ruler • crayons or markers • paper • old catalogs or magazines

What to do:

  1. Staple several pieces of paper together to make a booklet.
  2. Write "All About (child's name)" on the cover. Invite your child to illustrate the cover.
  3. On each page, encourage your child to draw something about herself. She could trace a hand or foot, draw her eyes or hair color, dictate a list of favorite games, music, or songs.
  4. Together look in old magazines and cut out some of the things she likes.
  5. Encourage her to put one idea on a page and write her words as she describes her idea.

How to use:

Read the book together. If she is interested, share the book with friends and family.
