Chris Barton’s (Amazon affiliate link) How to Make a Book (about My Dog) is probably one of our new favorite picture books. I can guarantee we will be giving this as a gift.
Barton walks us through the process of how to make a book, from the brainstorming process all the way to the reader’s hands. He explains all of the people involved in writing and publishing a book and the work involved. Better yet, he does all of this in a fun, quirky, and interesting way. Explaining how to make a book while making that book about his dog Ernie just ads to the charm. Sarah Horne’s full color illustrations perfectly add to the story. This is perfect for elementary age kids. Available October 2021
