I love Show-and-Tell sessions in school, don't you? So while creating this mini book of animals, imagining all the fun I'll be having when I start teaching my soon-to-be-born baby the ABCs, I realised what a handy dandy tool the Display-It-All will be.For instance, to get my child all interested in reading, I'll have this displayed prominently, on a shelf, table, by the bed, so that he/she can easily see and reach for it. As an additional touch, I'll definitely be placing tools/objects related to the theme of the book by the stand, so that he/she (yup, we do not know the gender yet, it's going to be a surprise at birth, hence the he/shes =)) can make associations between subject matter and objects.
Now, one of my favorite usages - I get to hang my items off the owires on the book as well! So my child's interest will constantly be piqued, and no one page will ever be the same. So besides K for koala, he/she will also know that K is for Kangaroo, without the santa hat=)
So if you fall into one of the following categories:
- you're a mummy like me
- an educator
- someone with the desire to start conversations around the home/workplace
- a crafter proud of your creation
- have loads of mini albums around the place
- have a menu to display
- wants to announce a special news
- just enjoys storytelling
.....then you know what, you'll need a Display-It-All, where your life can be paraded! Have fun!
