Tumblebug really enjoys the opposites books by Leslie Patricelli. We have BIG little, Yummy Yucky, and Quiet Loud. He loves to be able to point at the things he knows. I wanted to make him more books with a personal feel. I made a book for his classroom with photos of items in their classroom that are mostly a color. It was a hit and I have made more copies for students that have moved to a different class.
I went through my photos and chose examples of things that are similar, but way different sizes, just like in the book BIG little. I also took more pictures throughout the summer to add to the book. Some examples are much better than others.
I used Photoshop to add the text to each picture but you can also use Picnik or any other photo editing software that lets you add text. I went with the text from the book: Elephants are BIG. Mice are little.
Once I developed all the photos I just stuck them in a cheap plastic photo album. I used a picture of my dad and Tumblebug as the cover. There are still empty pages, so I am going to find more BIG and little things to add.
