For Little Friends: My Book of Remembrance

My Book of Remembrance

  1. 1.

    Aunt Jennie gave me a scrapbook for my birthday. The cover is red with “My Book of Remembrance” written on the front. The pages inside are thick and gray.

  2. 2.

    I decided to put the supplies I need to work on my scrapbook in a box. I put in markers, scissors, glue, and tape.

  3. 3.

    Mom is helping me fill my book with things about me.

  4. 4.

    On the first page I glued a picture of me, and I wrote my name below it. Then I wrote, “My eyes are green. My hair is brown. I am six years old.”

  5. 5.

    On the next page I glued a special letter Grandma sent me. It is the first letter I ever received.

  6. 6.

    Last month I made a card for my dad. I colored purple flowers all around it. Dad said I could glue it in my book.

  7. 7.

    On another page I drew a picture of my mom, dad, brother, our pet cat, and me. I added a photo of the whole family and wrote, “We are a family.”

  8. 8.

    Mom helped me find a picture of the temple to glue in my book. I want to remember that we can be together forever.

  9. 9.

    I drew a picture of my house and the tree I like to climb. I also wrote my address and phone number.

    If you read my book of remembrance, you will learn lots of things about me. You can fill a book with things about you too. When people read it, they will learn about your history!
