'I can do anything' book Activity

October 28, 1998|By Susan Rapp | Susan Rapp,Village Reading Center

Children enjoy reading stories about other children, and they especially enjoy reading about themselves. Create a book your child will return to again and again.

First, make a blank book by stapling or sewing pages together. Paste pictures of your child in the book. Have your child dictate captions for you to write under the pictures; or, if your child can copy well, write out the captions and have your child copy them under each picture in his own book. Then label some of the blank pages with captions such as, "I can do anything if I try!" or "I just learned how to do something new!" Ask your child to draw appropriate pictures for each heading.
