Clare Bear, Clare Bear.
Clare Bear, Clare Bear, what do you see? I see Saint Clare looking at me. Saint Clare, Saint Clare, what do you see? I see Saint John looking at me.
This was a fun craft for me. Clare loves the Brown Bear book so I went with that story line to create a book about Saints. First, if you've never seen the cute designs by Victor Teh, go to his site at happysaints.com and browse for a while. I purchased the first series of Saints for less than $15. It's a PDF that is accessible as soon as you pay via paypal. I can print whatever I want from that file at any time. It's great. I love it. I used the small prayer card templates for this book. I choose five saints for the book. I then found a small board book that was damaged, and one that never made it into our reading cycle, and taped the pages. On one side, it's a picture of the saint. On the opposite page, it's the bio of the saint with a prayer. I'll try to post the video of Clare reading the book. She likes reading this book, and has asked several good questions about the saints. I need to make another book to expose her to more saints.
