This week I had the pleasure of teaching a 9-year-old friend, Margaret how to make a book! Margaret created a wonderful story about a unicorn within a girl’s imagination. She used very few words in the book (3 to be exact!). Instead of writing a story, Margaret focused on weaving a narrative- and a dreamy experience for the reader- through pictures. We also made magnets, buttons, bookmarks, etc. featuring the story’s characters and Margaret’s Fantasy Press logo. This process was tons of fun and the results were so satisfying! Seeing your ideas transform into a “real” hardcover book? Always a good choice.
I must say, I think making books is THE GREATEST. And kids making books? Extra great. Check back soon for a new post about at-home publishing for kids.
Thanks for a great week, Margaret!
