October 27, 2011

Writing and reading go hand in hand. Bookmaking activities for children are a natural fit for library programs. Here are some ideas from around the web worth exploring:

paint chip books

Books made from paint chips at Crow Rooster Crow.

scratch sniff books

Scratch and Sniff Books with Jello on My Oatmeal Kisses. Touch, sight and smell all in one project. Brilliant!

Brown Paper Bag books at Blissfully Domestic: button book, accordion book, step book and portfolio book

accordion book

Accordion Books at Bird and Little Bird

stitched book

Miniature Center-Stitched Book by Bird and Little Bird.┬áThis one’s more complicated than the others, but my library had a very successful program making books this way for Grades 4-6.
