When Abe and I were finished with the creative process, I printed the story onto cardstock, trimmed the pages in half with a paper cutter, and then bound all of the pages together using my Bind-it-All machine. Total time for this project: about an hour, from start to finish. But the end result is a story book that Jack will undoubtedly read over and over again!
If you would like to ease the transition from home to school for your little one, a fun story like this might be just the ticket! If your child doesn’t have a stuffed animal he or she is particularly fond of, another fun idea would be to write a book from the perspective of a beloved pet.
I have created a printable version of my book that you can fill in by hand. The inside pages contain a blank space where you can adhere your photos, and a box where you can write the wording for your story. Be sure to include the date in the heart on the back cover for posterity’s sake!
