What do you see?

Hi!  I decided to make another little project for TGF's SCS Chit Chat Night.  You can view the challenge details HERE.  My inspiration is another children's book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle.  It was one of my favorites to use for speech therapy.  The kids loved it and it was so easy to take the same concepts and expand on it so parents could help their kids too.  I remember I had a whole bunch of these animals printed out and laminated for the kids to play with.  Now, my youngest really loves this book too.  He likes the whole series of them.

So I decided to make a little board book.  It's been a while since I made a little book like this.  I tried to keep it relatively simple.

This is the cover.  I used TGF's Oh Boy Ian since I knew my son would want it after I was done making it.  The cover measures 3x3 inches.  The title was made with rub on letters.

My brown bear is from TGF's Oh Baby set.  I printed all the pages out.  The images are all just stamped onto the page and colored with Copics.

I changed some of the animals but the colors are the same.  This little piggy is from McSplendid Farm.

The duck is from Build a Onesie (girl) clear stamp set.

I like this blue horse the best!  Also from McSplendid Farm.

Not loving the froggy's coloring too much.  Some how my greens got a bit mixed up.  He is from Down By the Pond.

The purple cat is from Ginger Bell stamp set.

The white hen is also from McSplendid Farm.

Do cows have horns?  Is this a bull?  Oh well.  I'm calling it a cow and I was running out of ink in my grays so had to use my black pencil to kind of fill in the rest.  S/he is also from McSplendid Farm.

The goldfish is from Down By the Pond.

My last page is of Teacher Anya. 

I also rounded the corners of the book.  I used tape to attach my pages instead of glue like I've done before.  My kids loved it and of course my youngest claimed it as his.  And I like how cute it turned out especially since it's small for a child to hold.

Thanks for reading!
