I recently painted these little open books I had ordered a while back. My idea was that these would be great for encouraging story-telling or to keep a story going. I wrote things like, "Once there was a little boy who wanted nothing more than...," or, "And then, a very strange thing happened." I wrote in them with a fine-tip calligrophay pen but I think a regular fine tip pen would work better. I went to the craft store to get one but ther were really expensive!!
Here is one of my clothespin dolls reading one of the books.
I was inspired to make this blog post by Counting Coconuts blog post today about storytelling!
