Bookmaking is a simple way to encourage free expression in children. It is open and loose; there are no rules or patterns to follow, and it provides endless opportunities for developing creativity. A variety of materials can be used–materials that most households already have on hand.
The end result is an intimate, little object that children (and adults!) will love to hold and page through, over and over again.
Today Mia and I made books together. She filled a few with drawings and words and wrapped them to give to her special people for Valentine’s Day. A sweet girl and a special day.
