This book making project was designed to make something that the kids are familiar with. Storytelling with pictures and words are great visuals, but telling their story from their handmade books would encourage various learning themes.
Once everyone had a book we sat in a circle and told our stories. The children were very interested in this process and enjoyed the idea holding their book and telling an imaginary story, the images and words were coming from their playful and fun minds. Connecting to their books through reading and images is the next step to the book making project.
