Student-produced books build pride in the writing process. Making books seems to have widespread appeal for children at various age levels. Whether using simple techniques of fastening a few sheets of paper together or using more involved and elaborate bookbinding procedures, children are often inspired to write something inside their books and are interested in reading other students’ books. In this course, we will explore various methods of making and decorating books with an emphasis on using readily available and inexpensive materials.
