She has a delightful website called Making Books with Children, that teaches and encourages children to make their own books. She also has a blog featuring various handmade books! I love that she uses or should I say re-uses all sorts of papers. I especially like what she calls the HOT DOG BOOK! Here's a video on how to make one:
Or if you prefer to print out the instructions, here's a link to a PDF file: Hot Dog Book. I can't wait to share this with my students next fall!
