I was at the library today in the stacks when I noticed the book How to Make Books, with a simple cover but intriguing title I decided to look inside. The simple craft guide book ended up being a great choice! Smith uses fun little narratives as she introduces each book. There are clear directions, both in cook-book style and illustrations. I tried making two of the books inside and they were lots of fun! The materials needed are things you have around the house and the books themselves don’t take too long to make. It is just up to you to decide how you will decorate your book! So next time you are at the library looking for a good craft book you should check out How to Make Books.
