Do you have a precious little one in your life? A child, grandchild, niece, nephew, godchild, or a friend's child? What gifts do you like to gift the youngster in your life? Besides love, prayers, and presence, my favorite gift to give a child is a book.
Books can be the windows to the world for a child giving them the courage to journey into amazing lands and inspiring them to dream big dreams. Books educate and entertain...at any age! But, to foster a child's love for reading books at an early age can set them up for a foundation of life-long learning.
That's why I make it a point to give a youngster a book for any special gift-giving occasion or for any day "just because" reasons. But, I prefer to not give just any book. My preference of choice is to give a one-of-a-kind book, such as a homemade A-B-C keepsake book.
What is a homemade A-B-C one-of-a-kind keepsake book? It's a book you make with photos you take of people, places, or things to represent each letter of the alphabet. You can make this book be whatever you want it to be. You can create a theme with the photos or keep it an eclectic collage of photos.
You can also add your own writing to the pages of the book with personal messages, words of wisdom, humor, scripture, inspirational quotes, or explanations about the photos. The ideas are endless!
Are you excited about this idea? But, did you just think about Q, X, or Z? What could you take a photo of when it comes to these less common letters of the alphabet?
There's lots of possibilities you can do. The next time you are in the grocery store, keep your eyes open for items that begin with these letters, or search online for words that begin with the letter you need to jumpstart your photo scavenger hunt.
So, grab your cell phone/camera and get ready to seek out and capture a minimum of 26 pictures, one for each letter of the alphabet. On your mark, get set...
But, before you go, here are some ideas to keep in mind while picture taking in order to make your A-B-C Book the one-of-a-kind keepsake it will be:
