Fabric Books

Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play, children learn how to learn. ~O. Fred Donaldson

During this pandemic, I have often thought of the children who have had limited contact with people other than their family. The lack of socialization has depressed me, so I can only imagine how the children are feeling. My friends and I plan to volunteer at schools as soon as it is possible. There are many children who will need help.

My one year old grandson started Montessori pre-school. This has brought on great excitement, along with some of the initial stress of separation and a totally different routine. Last week, I bought him two shirts for school. My son said that my grandson loves his new shirts, and he sets out his school clothes at night. I thought it might help to get him some more shirts. Then, I thought about how much my grandson loves the ABC fabric book I made for him a few months ago. He takes it everywhere. So, I made him a new book about going to school. I printed photos of the new shirts on fabric printing paper. Then I wrote some lines having the animals featured on the shirts talking to my grandson about how fun it is to go to school. Hopefully, this will add to the excitement and routine of going to school. He is ready to to play and learn how to learn.
