The “Christopher Columbus – 1492” BittyBook is an economical way to get a book into the hands of children, using only one sheet of paper. The small size is a good fit for small hands. This BittyBook creates a pathway to literacy through the use of high-frequency sight words in the context of familiar neighborhood images. The dots provide scaffolding through 1-to-1 correspondence and keep the children on task, maximizing participation. The books can be colored, making the book a valued personal project. When shared with family, these books can help build positive school/family connections.
