thanks ladies...
It is really basically a poem about her stuffed puppy.....
but I figured hey,some of the board books I buy for 7.00 a pop are only 5 pages long with one or 2 lines written...lol....
I want mom to do the pics...
and if nothing else, I am going to laminate and bind it so Katie can have it

I have never done this before, but here it goes.....dont laugh!


My Favorite Little Puppy

He wears a hat of pink
his pajamas are light blue,
he holds a fuzzy blanket
and wears his slippers too!

He sits with me at breakfast
When I start my day
And even in the afternoon
he isn't far away

When it's storytime with mommy
he sits upon my lap
and when we both get sleepy
he's with me when I nap

My puppy goes everywhere with me
he loves to take a ride
Wherever I may go
he is always by my side

And when it's time for bed
I hold him oh so tight
he keeps me safe and warm
all throughout the night.

Dee, I love it. Haley has a stuffed animal that she's like that with. It's Eyeore from Winnie the Pooh and he's been with her since she was 2 or a little younger. I think that's a great story. I also hate paying that price for such little books. Good work honey

Have you made photobooks on Snapfish or Walmart's site? You could easily make it into a real book that way! Just have your mom draw the pictures, then scan them into your computer. Ooooh, now you've got me thinking about making some type of book for Cori!!

Dee -- when you sell it, sell it with a stuffed puppy.

I love it!
