Grades 1-3: Create Your Own Book!

Have you ever wanted to produce your own book? You can! This program is especially for first- through third-graders who dream of becoming authors and illustrators--and holding their own books in their hands.

First, we'll read a book together and talk about how it was made. Then, we'll brainstorm a story. Finally, we'll break out cardboard, fabric, paper and glue, and get to work creating your own book! Younger kids will need help from a grown-up to bind their books--you'll have your choice of stapling or sewing the binding. I will send you a materials list before we meet (everything is inexpensive and easy to find!).
