Bookcrafts for Children.
The making of a book is an effective way to instill pride in authorship and to emphasize the importance of writing to children. This guide finds that the finished product (the book) capitalizes on the language background of each child, becomes an extension of the natural language of children, and teaches children to value their work and to take time for craftsmanship. The guide offers ideas for simple books for younger children and more complex books for older children. It shows step-by-step instructions, complete with pictures, for each project. Sections in the guide are: (1) A Child Went Forth: The Purpose for Bookcrafts; (2) Types of Books That Can Be Made; (3) Making the Book Cover; (4) Bookbinding Tools and Materials; (5) Making the Sewn Book in Which to Write; (6) Making the Sewn Book to Read; (7) Making the Loose Leaf Folder; (8) Practical Applications; and (9) an Appendix listing materials and sample labels for book covers.
