The newest addition to my children's book collection

Posted by   + Show Post





I make children's books as a hobby.  Of course I work a full-time job, but I would love for my full-time work to be making these books.  It's not really feasible right now, but I could really fill up 40 hours plus doing this if I didn't have a job. LOL  Anyway I'm making this personalized book for a girl at work for her baby.  I didn't get her a baby present, so Im trying to make it up to her.  The book is about self-esteem and a princess being able to do anything she wants to do.  It's really short, but I hope she likes it :)!

I would love to have the time to do that. I've been wanting to make my kids a children's book for a long time. That's awesome that you've made it a hobby!

That is so cool. I have written a few stories for my grandkids, and am working on a longer elementary school age chapter book.  This would be a great idea for my grandsons birthday! I was working on editin the stories and trying to get them published, but unitl then, I might do something like this for thier birthdays and christmas!
