Want a way to capture what’s in their imaginations right now and keep it forever?
Looking for a special keepsake your kids can share with family and friends?
Pick up a pen and produce your very own book, written by your kids.
In this article, I’ll show you how easy (and quick) it is to put your children’s thoughts and illustrations down on paper and bind them into a book for everyone to enjoy.
