Book Making

Come tell your story! Image, create, and share a book designed by you. Making your own book is a fantastic way for children of all ages to communicate their ideas.

Children and their families always find these wonderful ways to get started. Sometimes they create elaborate covers and bindings, but sometimes they simply fold a few pieces of paper in half and get started writing and drawing!
