Workman, A Book About Mom with Words and Pictures by Me & A Book About Dad with Words and Pictures
(Workman $9.95 each)
You’ll want to keep this book for years to come after your son or daughter add their words and pictures. It’s an activity book that will give you a picture of yourself through your child’s eyes.
It’s a fill-in-the-blanks book that kids “write” with what they know of the things you like and dislike and how you make them feel. Some of the ideas are whimsical, like-- if you were an ice cream, what flavor you would be? Others are more reality based—three things you do that make me smile. Your biographer may need some answers from you as they fill in the blanks. It will take time; writing books take time. But in the end, this will become a classic. There’s one that will be all about Mom and another abut Dad. We know this will be a keeper. Marked 5-12. It might be fun for younger kids, but you will need to do the writing for 5s and most 6s. We think it’s a better choice for 8-12.
