An “All About Me” book

Often when an older sibling goes off to school, your younger preschooler may experience sadness or frustration that they are left behind. A great idea to help your younger one feel special and “big” is to help them make an “all about me” book.

What you’ll need:

  • Plain and/or construction paper
  • Art supplies (glue, markers, crayons, etc.)
  • Pictures or drawings of things your child likes to do

What to do:

  1. Staple plain paper together, preferably with a different colored cover, in order to make a book.
  2. Have your child tell you about themselves: physical descriptions, favorite foods or things to do, all about his family or favorite pet.
  3. Write these down on the pages.
  4. Find unique objects to glue into the book, or help your child cut out pictures to make a collage or draw her own.

Display the book proudly and read it together, adding to it as your child is interested.
