  • If the book is for a very young toddler, make sure pieces are glued well. A craft glue will have a stronger hold.
  • Make sure you read with your child and discuss textures. That way you are also monitoring any pieces that get loose.

  • Make a page a day rather than trying to complete the book in one day!
