Create Your Own 3 BITTY BOOKS encourages children to be the author and illustrator of their own tiny tales. Storytelling is a great way to share information about our experiences and our dreams, and to open the pathways of imagination. It helps sharpen skills of visualization, plot development, linear thinking, creative problem solving, attention span, reading, writing and small motor skills!! …but don’t tell the kids, because they think it’s just FUN!
These itty bitty books are huge inspiration for creating stories and documenting special days. Kids can write about special events in their lives, their pets, school, friends, vacations…or learn to create a plot and characters and develop fictional stories. Younger kids can dictate a story to a parent who writes it down next to the child’s illustrations, or they can tell their story with pictures alone.
Older kids can create graphic stories with dialogue and plot, write poetry, autobiographies, or use it scrapbook style with photos and ephemera from a vacation or event…the possibilities are limitless. The small size is so precious, like a sweet place for secrets, but also not too overwhelming when contemplating the blank page. And they’re a great size for travel - pack them along on vacation or when going to Grandma’s.
