Why didn't I think of that?

I know a certain 5-year-old who will be getting a "write your own books" box for Christmas!

I am having one of those 'why didn't I think of that' moments. My grandson is always writing stories. This is going into his Christmas basket for sure. Thanks for sharing it. Roxie

Ditto here! I just made two quick ones and my girls are bouncing off the walls with excitement! I think a whole stack will show up under the tree this year!

This is a fabulous idea. I believe my future fashion designer needs a "Create your own fashion Magazine Box"

You know, I am a grandmother of 4. As I look back at things my greatest treasures are 'books' and papers my sons made while they were little. I have one book my oldest son, now 35 wrote when he was 6. He wanted to be a doctor. He is an RN now with a master's degree working to be a RN practioner. So though he is not a doctor he is working in the field he has always wanted to be in.
Keep these books your kids write. You will be so glad you did.
