While studying desert, Elijah decided he really wanted to start his own Dog Family Lapbook (inspired by coyote). He wants to include various foxes, wolves, and breeds of dogs.
I did not want to design a Dog Family Lapbook. I decided I would just give him the tools he needed to do it himself. I put the Lapbook Reference book, some pictures, some printed information, scissors, double-stick tape, colored pencils, colored paper, etc. all in a workbox for him.
I think he’s worked on this four times. He sits for an hour (or longer) and just reads and reads and works and works. I stay far, far away from this project as I let him make all the choices. Yes, I give him the tools…then I step away. If he needs something, he asks (and let me tell you- he is very specific and picky!).
Here are some shots of the inside of his book (yes, another Bare Book!). I didn’t take pictures of every minit book or every picture, but you will get a good sampling.

About Dholes (Do you know that the Dhole is in the Dog Family? Do you know what a Dhole is?!)
He has a list of twenty-some "dogs" he wants in the book. I will update once he thinks he is finished!
