We made books without staples using this tutorial from Adventures in Mommydom! We used the MeMeTales Readathon book, Lott’s Tea Party, as our inspiration for stories. Emma (six years old), being in her current very literal mood, retold the story – although she used a narrative style rather than the action word format found in the actual book.
Johnny (four years old) drew StickFiggy going to bed, and having various adventures. Johnny LOVED making these little books, so StickFiggy went on a lot of adventures! Both of the StickFiggy books we read had a strong friendship theme, and so it’s appropriate that Johnny’s stories featured many friends of StickFiggy!
Lily (two years old) drew Lott (in pink, in the above photo), as well as the chick from StickFiggy Makes a Friend (pictured below) for her book.
Each of the kids also enjoyed this cute printable, made by the author, Jane Marshall, to go along with StickFiggy Makes a Friend.
Emma stayed within the story plot, while Johnny’s baby bird spoke standard bird gibberish:
Lily’s baby bird is saying Lyli – she knows the letters of her name, and spells them out in order, but rarely writes them in order.
