From the Manufacturer

Be your own author

Create Your Own 3 BITTY BOOKS encourages children to be the author and illustrator of their own tiny tales. Storytelling is a great way to share information about our experiences and our dreams, and to open the pathways of imagination. It helps sharpen skills of visualization, plot development, linear thinking, creative problem solving, attention span, reading, writing and small motor skills!! …but don’t tell the kids, because they think it’s just FUN!

Everything you need is included

3 Hardcover bitty books, each 4 inches x 5 inches with 12 blank sheets (24 pages!) ready for your little ones’ creative tales. The high-quality paper is perfect for drawing, writing and pasting photos or stickers, and the hard cover binding protects these keepsakes for years to come.

A sturdy white book holder, ready to illustrate and protect your bitty books.

9 Mini markers, in a rainbow of colors.

3 Adhesive-backed book plates for dating and signing each book.

100+ Color-in Clip-Art stickers, in a variety of classic themes and styles for embellishing stories. Great for those kids who like writing their stories more than illustrating.

Instructions, this open-ended activity requires very little in the way of true instruction but the kit does provide loads of ideas on how to “Brainstorm” and a list of Story Starters, such as “All About Me”, “I Love to…”, “My ABC’s”, etc.

Contents may vary from those shown or listed

Create your own story

These itty bitty books are huge inspiration for creating stories and documenting special days. Kids can write about special events in their lives, their pets, school, friends, vacations…or learn to create a plot and characters and develop fictional stories. Younger kids can dictate a story to a parent who writes it down next to the child’s illustrations, or they can tell their story with pictures alone. Older kids can create graphic stories with dialogue and plot, write poetry, autobiographies, or use it scrapbook style with photos and ephemera from a vacation or event…the possibilities are limitless.

A great size for travel

The small size is so precious, like a sweet place for secrets, but also not too overwhelming when contemplating the blank page. And they’re a great size for travel - pack them along on vacation or when going to Grandma’s.

There is something extra special about 'writing a book' to my kids that writing or drawing on plain paper or in a regular notebook just doesn't seem to approximate. These little books are just the right size and price for the kids to make something a little special, but not so expensive that I will be upset when they are eventually destroyed. (And they will be destroyed. These look more durable than I had expected given the price, but as another reviewer points out, the pages are just glued together.)

The books are about 4"x5" with 12 (or 24, I guess) pages inside each. Their binding, the stickers that come in the kit, and the book-holder box are all made of or covered in plain matte white paper and can be decorated with the markers. The paper inside the books is slightly heavier than regular printer paper but not quite cardstock. So far not even the five-year-old has managed to make the markers bleed through the paper.

Our eight-year-old has used another book-making kit in the past that involved writing and drawing on special pages, mailing those off, and then waiting and waiting and waiting to get the finished book back. We loved that kit and its finished product but it was definitely not instant gratification. It also cost about three times as much as this kit.

As nicely self-contained as this kit is, it would make a great travel/vacation toy or a great toy to have on hand if you're about to be visited by kids.

Did I mention we love it? We love it.

I sent this to my godchild for her 7th birthday. She really enjoyed making the little books and reading them to her mother. Her mom told me it was one of her favorite gifts. If the child you're buying for loves to draw and read, this is a winner.

My niece and daughter (both four) recently spent hours making their own story books with this wonderful little kit. The books are a perfect size (about the size of a small board book, only with regular pages), the quality of the cover is excellent, and the girls greatly enjoyed making their own books. The only problem, however, was that the pages do come out a little too easily for my taste. The binding is not sewn, but rather glued in a little like a notepad, and a surprisingly small amount of force in the wrong direction can rip a page out. Still, on balance the price is fantastic for what you get. I would have enjoyed this kit very much as a kid. As it is, I was very tempted to save the third book for myself to use.

First, these books are TINY, second, any marke or even ball point pen will bleed through page, which means about all you can use are crayon or blunt pencil, but those then rub against the opposite page when the book is closed. Overall: OK for letting your kid write a forgettable story, but if you want something to keep until they're older, find something higher quality.

I think the bounded books are great. Really encourages kids to be creative and think through how to write a story. My 5 year old loved it and created a bizarre book about an Easter Egg. My only complaint is the the markers and stickers are really cheap. I get that this isn't an expensive product. So maybe they can skip the markers (everyone has crayons and markers at home anyway) and just provide more and / or better quality stickers.

The girls (7&9) at first loved this but lost interest after 30 minutes or so. Maybe it just wasn't the right time.

Simple concept, huge inspiration. Both my girls (ages 5 and 7) love these little books and spend hours writing and illustrating their latest stories. Highly recommended.

My niece is such a story-teller, I had to finally get her something to make her stories into "official" books. She loves it!
