    5. Have your child cut the pages if she is proficient in using a scissors or pre-cut them before you begin.
    6. Make a list of colors with your child. Choose about 4-5 colors for your book. If your child is familiar with more colors, add a few more pages.
    7. Have your child match the sentence to the picture and glue it down with a glue stick.

  • Place all writing under pictures on each page to keep it uniform and easier for child to know which belongs to which picture.

  • When you share the book together, point to the word and say the name.
  • Make sure to praise your child for "reading" if they can tell you anything about the photo. Picture clues are an important reading strategy for toddler books.
