  1. Hey thank you so much Jennifer! Those instructions are perfect! I am going to link from you site for the inspiration. We made something different this time, but my son is going to be stoked about the brown paper bag books and he is getting ripe to learn how to read and I really bet this is going to be just the ticket to help out! And it was fun to see you stopped by my blog 🙂
