Board Book Album Review and Giveaway

 My son love looking at pictures of our family, friends and himself. He has always enjoyed this. We sit beside each other sometime he would get excited and accidentally ripped the page out of ts binder, or remove the covering and try to touch the picture.


Now there is Board Book Albums another thing that make you are you toddlers life easier.
What is a Board Book Album?
Board Book Albums, LLC is proud to offer a new chunky board book style photo album that can be used by small children, big kids, and adults alike. The "Take Your Pix™" photo album (patent pending) has sturdy pages, into which photos can be inserted from an opening in the top of the pages. Unlike other albums, these albums have thick sturdy pages that are perfect for little kids to handle (like the chunky little kids books). Notches have been added to the page edges to facilitate page turning. The photo album is 7" x 7" with 10 pages. It holds 20 4" x 6" photos and has a cover photo frame that holds a slightly smaller photo (about 4" x 5", so you can just trim a 4" x 6" photo to fit). All of our Board Book Album products are free-standing and perfect for display!

We received the blue Board Book Album. I love it. You don't have to cut or crop the picture. I just slipped the photos I wanted in the top of the page they went easily in. The pages were nice and very sturdy. There were notches in each page, little A had no problem turning them. Each book held 20 pictures. I love that the Board Book Albums are like a blank canvas. You can just add you picture or you can add scrapbook embellishments. I was thinking of adding names under each picture, it might help him identify words. Here are some examples the I love. Board Book Albums has more scrap booking ideas at there site.

I learned that laura, the creator of board books, had a daughter was having problems with certain developmental milestones. Their physical therapist suggested using a photo album to learn easier, and the board book was born! That is awesome!

I learned that Kids with autism, speech delay, or other special needs may find it particularly beneficial as a learning tool, or just something fun to create with their own favorite photos.

The book can be utilized as a development/learning tool as the creator's daughter, Lucia did or used just for fun. It would be a GREAT book to have.
