It has become a tradition for us to create a book for the boys at Christmas time, with various titles including "S and Bunny at the Farm" and "A goes to the Beach". However this year we used S's own artwork as illustrations for his book.
Building on the beautiful alphabet frieze hanging in his bedroom we photographed each letter and have uploaded it into a photo book making website to create a personal dictionary for S. Each spread has a photo of one of his alphabet handprints and blank page where we can write and add words of personal significance to aid his reading and writing.
I am so excited to give this to S this year. His writing is blossoming beautifully and I think he will get years of use out of this gift.
How could you use your child's art work in a photo book?
