Re: teaching bookmaking

Have you tried searching on Amazon.com?  There are a number
of good books on bookmaking projects specifically for kids - Susan
Kapacinski Gaylord has a wonderful book on multi-cultural books
to make with children.

Paul Johnson, I believe, also has a number of title on teaching literacy
through the book arts.  I don't recall the titles of these books off hand,
but many should be available either through your local book store or
through amazon.com.

Susan is on this list and may respond to you directly.  Ed Hutchins
who is also on the list may know of even more resources - most of
those that I know about I got through him (thanks Ed.)

Good luck,

Hi everyone,
I am a freelance teacher.  I teach in an outreach program through a local
college, in our city's Children's museum, I present papermaking workshops
throughout our community in schools and businesses, and I also run an art
program for homeschooled kids.  I want to venture into bookmaking, but am
having trouble finding creative and unusual ideas for chidren (And adults).  I
can't even find any good books on the subject-how ironic is THAT?  The closest
I came to good info on the Web is this list, and so far it's been really
quiet.  Can any of you out there help me with suggestions?  Are you willing to
share your ideas with a fellow teacher and take a hand in creating our future
papermakers and bookmakers?  Please let me know!  I am very eager to dive into
bookmaking and await all replies.
