What do babies have in common with some of our aging grandparents? The need to learn and remember family members’ names. Be it for baby Sophia or Great Grandma Sophie, this chunky board book photo album can help do the trick. It is constructed of sturdy cardboard pages that won’t bend or tear. Notches on page edges facilitate page turning for both youngest and oldest hands alike. Photos can be easily inserted from openings at the top of the pages. Albums are free-standing, so are perfect for display anywhere in the home.
This product is “mom-invented” by a woman who wanted to develop an item to aid in her daughter’s speech therapy. It has become a speech development tool recommended by parents, teachers, and therapists. It is also a learning tool for special needs and autistic children. The pages can be filled with photos of faces, objects, or activities to help children with developmental challenges. Albums can even be used with PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System), which involves an autistic child using a catalog-type book with photos, to communicate. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s patients will find it much easier to handle than traditional albums. The 7″x7″ book contains 10 pages, plus cover, allowing for 21 4″x6″ photos. “My First Photos” album is available in pink, yellow, and blue. Blank albums are available in white, black, pink, and blue. Interior pages are solid in color with no printing or lettering.
This product is great for scrap-booking, kids’ crafts, school activities, weddings, baby showers, special needs children, and our much respected elders.
