Lifebooks present opportunities for children to have fun while building a concept of “self”, strengthening attachment, and developing a sense of permanency in their lives.
A lifebook shares a child's life in a chronological manner. It could be a book, a shoebox, or whatever the child deems an important space. One of the things that a lifebook includes are: official documents, child made pictures, documents, drawings, letters, and other writings that are important to the child.
