Your child will identify some favorite things to put into a book, which helps to reinforce what makes your child special and unique. Your child can also verbalize what his favorite things are and increase his language and vocabulary skills.
Begin by talking to your child about some of his favorite things. You can share some of your favorites and encourage your child to do the same. Explain what favorite means by saying, “Favorite is something that is special or the thing you like the best.”
On the cover you can write “[Child’s name]’s Favorite Things.” Next, using magazines, photos, printed clip-art, or pictures, your child (with your help as needed) can cut out pictures of his favorite things. These are then glued into the book. Model writing for your child by writing the name of each item on its page in the book.
Finally, you and your child can look through the book together and he can talk about why each thing is his favorite.
