A while ago, I asked my daughter to give suggestions for the theme of my next printable emergent reader booklet, and she didn’t have to think about it at all. She immediately said “Babies!!!” Can you blame her? Everyone loves babies 🙂
I didn’t actually have clip art for it or any ideas for the text, but I do love going with my daughter’s interests, so it wasn’t hard to make it happen with some super cute clip art.
E absolutely loved her customized I See Babies! Emergent Reader!
(E was 5 years and 5 months old.)

Materials for I See Babies! Emergent Reader
- I See Babies! Emergent Reader pdf file (see below).
- One sheet of paper. Use paper that’s a little heavier than regular printer paper if you want to avoid show-through from printing on both sides.
- Paper cutter (recommended) or scissors.
- Stapler (optional). A long-arm stapler is best, but I actually just don’t staple at all.
How to prepare the emergent reader booklet:
The file includes two pages (pages 4 and 5) that you need to print front and back on one piece of paper.
Hold the paper in a portrait orientation and cut along the gray horizontal line. This gives you 2 sets of 4 pages each for the 8-page booklet we’re about to make.
Fold both halves of the paper in half between the images of the emergent reader. Identify the title and copyright pages. They’ll make up the book “cover”. Place the other half sheet inside the cover.
Staple the pages together if you’d like.

Each page has an image of a baby and a simple sentence to read, using lots of sight words, other simple words, and color words.
