I made a personalized alphabet book for a young child using a small photo album. I used current and past pictures of people and things familiar to the child. Example: On one side I put "M" is for Mommy and I put a picture of her Mommy on the facing page. The child did not know what I was doing and she happily held some of the items (example: eggs in a bowl, because her family raises hens for the eggs). The project was great fun to do and the child cherishes it.
