My World is a unique approach to books for children: each book becomes a child's own special creation. The book encourages children to become their own artists and authors as they fill the pages with words and drawings of their own special world -- the one they live in! From favorite foods and clothing to activities and even place to draw a self-portrait, My World will provide hours of entertainment for children and precious memories for parents.

Packaged as a classroom kit, this unique tool is just what early childhood educators are looking for to keep parents actively involved as their child's first teacher. Students work at home with parents to create each page in their personal book to tell about themselves and what is important to them. Students share their creations with classmates as a way to build a caring classroom family. At the end of the year, the student takes his/her personal creation home to keep. Great tool for encouraging regular communication between home and school throughout the year.
