This is a reletively new concept: Totbooking

Totbooks are very similar to lapbooks but they focus on play/learning value and a smaller size.

I am really excited about it. One of my children is three years old right now and I got so excited about it I started to create our own Ten Apples Up On Top reproducible tot-book. It is not done yet so I need to get into my files and finish those.

Here is some more information on them. The totbook concept is so new, there is not much info on them out there! The majority of totbooks are geared toward boys. Hopefully, people will start creating these to share and there will be more that appeal to girls.
