My Adventure To The Fair; Where You Create The Story #5

In this trip to the fair, your child can fill in the details of his/her trip to the fair and its many adventures, including carnival rides, games, a pie eating contest, animals, music, and even fireworks.

Reader Enjoyment Factors:

This book is very unique and allows children to use their imagination and surprise you with the variety of their own ideas. Because it is personalized, kids will love seeing their name on the cover as author and illustrator. It encourages creativity and thinking skills in a fun way.

Content Awareness Factors:

The cover is very unexciting; I would probably not pick up the book in a store unless it was recommended.

Little Kid Reaction
Our son loved coming up with the words to fill in the blanks. Some answers were silly and some were very imaginative, but most the most exciting part was that he got to decide.
Big Kid Reaction
I enjoyed seeing my son's excitement to be creative in a new way. I was surprised by some of the words he chose and learned things about him from his answers that I did not know before. A book like this is fun not only at the time you create it, but would be fun to re-read over the years.
Type of Book:
This is an interactive story where children add words to create the tale and illustrate their work.
Educational Themes:
This book has a strong educational theme as kids work on finding the right words to complete the sentences. You can use this as an opportunity to discuss different types of words (noun, adjective, verb etc.) It could be used similar to a Mad Lib where you fill out a list of words and then put the list and story together for a funny version.
