Look At Me!
This post features a new home made book I created as a "make and take" activity at parent support groups. This book has many features that are appealing to young children:
Mirrors - Babies love looking at pictures of other babies, but they enjoy looking at themselves even more! Mirrors are a great way of helping children become self-aware.
Shapes - Children will learn about a variety of shapes by looking at their relection in the shapes. Learning the names of shapes will help you child take their first steps to becoming a math wiz!
Repetition - We all know that children learn best though repetition. This book was written with simple text to help children understand the relationship between what we say and print.
"Look at me! I'm in a square."
"Look at me! I'm in a circle."
TIP: You can buy mirror paper at your local art supply store on a large roll.
