When you’re surrounded by inspiring children’s books it’s only natural to want to try your hand at making your own. Miss E and Miss I are in 2nd grade and Kindergarten and love making their own books on scrap paper or in little journals.
We decided to take it a step further by ordering each of them an IlluStory Bookmaking Kit, by Lulu Jr. The kit includes everything you need to write and illustrate your own book, including a writing guide, markers and template pages. Once complete you send in the pages to be printed as a real hardcover book!
The kits have been instrumental in getting our littles to really plan out a story line adventure and think through their ideas for each book. So far we have a story about Miss E and a band of Star Wars characters, plus another about Miss I and her magical pet unicorn (Kaboom). I’ll keep you posted on how they turn out!
