All you need to make a little book is a piece of paper, a stapler, scissors, glue and wrapping paper. Our adventure comes in 3 parts. After introductions, 1) I show-and-tell the story of how I learned to make a 24-page book from 1 piece of paper... through an old children's book. 2) Then we make books together, play with paper folding and simple arts & crafts. Kids, ages 10+ can do this with adult help. 3) We talk about the creative act. Why make books? Do you have stories and pictures that need a home? Would you like to make a coloring book or a flip book? This is fun to share with family and friends. Contact your host to schedule private book-making parties.
"I love books!" says the retired children's librarian - a storytelling historian with a passion for engaging folks with books. This way of turning 1 piece of paper into a 24-page book is from the 1450s. It's basically how books have been made for nearly 600 years, but not many people know how to do it. It's a special secret you can share with family and friends. I learned it through research into early California children's books, so have a story to tell. This adventure aims to stimulate your relationship with books; an invitation to creative play. Made with love and patience, your books are works of art, empty vessels waiting for words and pictures. Make them as gifts for your family and friends or just for yourself. Once you know how to do this, it's fun and easy to share.
A piece of printer paper works best but different sizes are fun to play with.
A piece of gift wrap paper, roughly 6" x 6".
Glue stick or white glue.

"I'm home in our library, which doubles as an Airbnb suite in the historic town of Sonoma, California. We are known as wine country but we are also historic. Mission Solano on the Plaza near my house was built (1823), marking the northern edge of the Mexican empire. And my daily walk goes past Buena Vista (1863) the oldest winery in the state. We're grateful to live here."
