My first book...

I wrote a book.  Yup, I did.  One for my little one and one for his best buddy.  For both of their first birthdays.  It's about going to the zoo, since that's a tradition we started and hope to continue.  And boy, did I under estimate how long it takes to write and illustrate one of these. It has raised form peaces, so it's a feely book.

Here's a picture of him getting it for his birthday, which he gave me a kiss when he got it (awww).  And then he initiated looking at it, so we read a bit right then and there.  How could a mama refuse?

  1. I love it!!! Those animals in the trunk are a riot! I have made books for the girls at different times and they are always well loved. There's something very special about a handmade book.

  2. This is such a great idea! I have to try this with Jena at one of her birthdays. She has a best bud, they were born 2 days apart and I love the idea of giving them the same story. Too cute! Of course my husband would have to illustrate because even my stick figures are questionable! :)
