Ever wish your photo albums were sturdy enough to not fall apart?  This idea is not just for baby books. This photo album invention was created by a Mom who needed a sturdy photo album to facilitate learning for her daughter.

The album has sturdy cardboard pages, where you can slide the photo in from the top. Notches have been added to make page turning easy on small fingers. 7″ x 7″, 10 pages and holds 20 photos.
