I See My Little One Looking at Me

ages 1-6


Supplies

3-ring binder or presentation folder with clear page protectors; pictures of family members or animals depending on book theme; Eric Carle's Brown Bear, Brown Bear in case you aren't familiar with the pattern.

Activity Detail

There is just something magical about the cadence and content of Eric Carle's books. My kids loved Brown Bear, Brown Bear so much that we have made several book adaptations in our house. One is a book of friends and family members: "Katie, Katie, who do you see? I see Aunt Deb looking at me!" This is a great way to remember family that you may not see all the time. We have another book that is "Katie Turns Two at the Zoo." We took pictures of many animals and printed them out for the book. Each page began with "Katie, Katie what do you see?" "I see an elephant... giraffe... gorilla... looking at me!" The last page was "I see a birthday girl looking at me!" It is a favorite read in our house. The best way to keep it intact is to use a very small 3-ring binder or presentation folder with clear page protectors. That way, your child's story can be 2-sided, just like a real book.

You could also creat a book simply using pictures of your child's favorite things...different kinds of trucks, butterflies, etc.
