Anton is almost two years old (I can’t believe this was so long ago!), and he’s really starting to speak. It’s such a fun age! To help him learn words, we made him his own Pinhole Press Mini Book of Names & Faces.

It’s so sweet to show Anton photos of him with people who love him.

Since our relatives live far away, this book helps Anton remember them between visits (and excitedly recognize them when he sees them again).

We also included photos of his favorite toys and animals, so when he learns words like “ball” and “house,” the images will actually look like the things in his everyday life.

Anton now requests it every night before bed–it has definitely become his favorite book. And it was quick and simple to put together—you could use Instagram photos! Thank you so much, Pinhole Press xoxo
