Making books, is a wonderful way to capture the interests of children and encourage their love of books.
The diagram below demonstrates how to make a book. Store all the books in a container and regularly choose a book to read or to show off to visitors. Your child could be the future Dr Seuss or J.K. Rowling, given enough confidence in their ability.
Provide your young child with different topics to cover: me, my family, my book of shapes, my book of numbers, pets, animals, cars, my counting book, my book of sounds, my birthday, things I like, things I don’t like etc.
