Personalized Books For Kids


I made a counting Book for my son years ago, but I used white cardstock pages and laminated them with laminating sheets and then took it to my local office store to be spiral bound. That worked out really well and he still loves looking at it. When I saw these blank board books on the Oriental Trading Website, I had to order some and use them for my daughter's book.

I took pictures of things of hers that she loves and printed them off on sticker paper, stuck the sticker to the board book and then I put laminating sheets over those. I personalized the cover with a picture of her and SHE LOVES THIS BOOK! She has been taking it to bed with her to read over and over.
