This new downloadable book edition of Creating Books with Children includes two versions of the original paperback book: (1) An updated version entitled Creating Books with Children, in printable PDF files, which leads parents and teachers through making a 24-page book. (2) An abridged version entitled Creating Short Books with Young Children, in printable PDF files, which leads parents and teachers through making an 8-page book.
The books produced in this course are of a professional, handmade quality. They are hardbound, hand-sewn, cloth-covered, typed, illustrated in full color, and enveloped in decorative book jackets. The books are 24 pages, or 8 pages long, and the dimensions are 8 1/2”x11”. Included in this guide are complete instructions and diagrams to lead parents and teachers successfully through the bookmaking process.
Pages from over 50 books by homeschooled children are reproduced as well to inspire young authors and illustrators. Reluctant children will no longer have reason to say, “I can’t write and I can’t draw.” Instructions are given to accommodate very young authors and illustrators too. This is a project for the entire family to enjoy!
