The premise of the personalised photo book by love2read is to help your child develop a love of reading. It does this by presenting photographs which reflect your child’s world and relating them to simple words. Research shows that if your child loves books they will learn to read much faster and you will be encouraging a lifelong love of reading. The key words in each book are known as “high frequency ” words, which are some of the first words your child will be taught to recognise when they start school.
All you have to do is upload ten suitable photographs into a virtual book at www.love2read.co.uk and add some simple text. Your book will be printed and sent to your home address within 10 days. There are over 80 titles to choose from or you can create your own titles from the website.
I created a “2012 My year” book for Mr K as his 5th birthday gift. It was very easy to upload the photos. My tip is to select all 10 photos with high quality resolution and place them into a new folder in your computer.
Once you upload the photo, you are unable to zoom or crop but you are able to rotate or move the photo around the frame.On each page, there are 3 icons above the photo. These are for you to rotate, change the border colour and change your photo. At the bottom of the page is for you to insert your text.
These are the few questions I asked him in the video:
