Toddler Books A Preview of Ideas for Book Making


Making Toddler Books are a Wonderful Way to Foster a Love For Books. Here are some ideas for making books of your own. We love making books for class activities that involve cooking, Science experiments, Math activities and favorite books we read. Be creative with your binding and use raffia, ribbons, colored book tape and more. If you make class books, you can send these home for parents to enjoy and then have each child pick one at the end of the year.
