And I should probably mention the website I used more than any: Google Image Search. It's a wonderful resource if you make your own lapbook templates and want more than cartoon-like clip art.

  1. WOW! "Thanks" from the Mama who is taking a look at trying some lapbooking. That's an impressive list of links there...

    Looks like fun! What do your boys think of lapbooking?
