Toddler Books: Make a Book Your Child Will Treasure

hawaii book
Toddler Books: Making Your Own Books is a Surefire Way to Capture Your Child's Attention. There is something special about seeing pictures of him or herself and favorite family members, friends and pets that will make "picture" books one of their favorites to read.


Make a book about a family vacation, a special celebration such as a birthday or a trip to the zoo. Using a Plastic Comb Binding Machine is an easy way to bind your books.

It is fast and easy to bind and makes page turning easy for children. If a page becomes loose it is easy to put back and more pages can always be added. If a page gets torn, simply cut a clean edge and punch another set of holes. It has been one of the best "School At Home" investments. I have had mine for over 10 years.


  • Construction paper or Cardstock
  • Glue Stickr
  • Photos
  • Docubind with Binding Combs
  • OTHER ITEMS (Optional)

  • Scrapbook Scissors (optional)
  • White Stick on Labels for easy Printing of Words

  • Stickers to embellish pages.

  • Clear Contact Paper or Laminating Sheets


    1. Select Pictures to be used.

    2. With your child arrange pictures in order to be glued on pages.

    3. Use glue stick to adhere pictures

    4. Discuss picture with your child and come up with a simple sentence or two for each.

    5. Write legibly under each picture or print out labels for your book.

    6. Bind

    7. If you are using pictures printed on photo paper you might want to cover them with contact paper.


  • Place all sentences under pictures to keep it uniform and easier for child to know which belongs to which picture. It's a book not a scrapbook so keep it simple.
  • Keep those extra pieces of binding combs for mini books!


  • Add stickers, postcards, or other memorabilia.


  • Point to the words as you read the toddler book to your child.
  • Praise your child for "reading" if they can tell you about the photo. It's all about creating an excitement and interest for books and a feeling of success at reading.
