Making Books by Paul Johnson


Making Books by Paul Johnson

This is a book on practical book-making ideas for children in the primary school, with activities that cover a range of text types from a sequential narrative to advertising copy. There are step-by-step instructions and diagrams for each project, along with photographs of the the finished books which children have made. The aim is to give children the opportunity to explore how books work and to narrow the gap between their reading and writing. In making the books, children will gain practice both in tailoring their writing for a range of different audiences and in communicating visually through illustrations and design.
