The making of "Lila's Life" Books

This is how 'Lilas Life books look like. I designed them myself. But I didn't do the printing. Mommy did. They were all handmade at home. I drew most of the drawings in these books. I actually drew the drawings once and scanned each and every one of them. Then, I inserted them into the books.

This is an example of the drawings in Book 2, "Lila's New Kitten". This is Lira the kitten. I hope you like it.

This is my plan before I formatted and then printed the books. My grandmother helped me get the ribbons.

Tell me what you think about Lila's Life


I have two more books to  share about Lila's Life, but before I do that, tell me what you think about my first story. What you like and dislike about it. 

Those who bought my first few hand-made books, thank you for your support, and please bare with those tiny errors. 

You can comment here or email me at storiesbynukey@gmail.com. 

By the way, the stories I wrote  are for children below 10 years old. My five year old brother likes them. 

Thank you and happy reading.

Book 1 : Lila's Life

Lilas Life

Foreword

Part 3 : Life @ Daycare
Every day, Lila and Lommo will go to Lokko’s pre-school. That is because Lokko’s pre-school provides day care services. Lila and Lommo will go to Lokko’s day care centre and do homework. If they have any homework that they need help with, the Teacher Bell will teach them. 

Lokko takes a nap every day at the day care centre. He sleeps for two hours. He sleeps from 2:00p.m. until 4:00p.m.

Nora and Adam go to Lokko’s place too. Lokko’s class teacher, Teacher Belle will go to Lila’s school and fetch all of them after school. They will then shower at Lokko’s day care centre.

Daddy and Mommy fetch Lila, Lommo and Lokko at 5:00p.m. 
They enjoy being with their friends and teachers at school, but they are always happy to be home at the end of the day.
