DLTK has a cool interactive page for creating a Printable About Me Book online. You can select different variables to create the book like the type of pet they own or home they live in. This would be a great activity to do with a child to help them make a correlation between online and desk learning.
My son really enjoys reading his book. He likes discussing what is happening in the photos and the fact that he can sound out the words with the help of the picture cues. To assemble it I cut out the pages leaving some extra space on the left hand side. I made a cover out of cardboard from a cereal box wrapped in craft paper, but I've include a title page in the template. I punched two holes in the left hand border and tied the book together with a piece of lacy ribbon.
With Christmas around the corner a book like this would be a great gift from the child to their grandparent or an awesome keepsake for mom and dad.
