@Caitlin- I use www.storyjumper.com to create and print books. So far, so good.

I stumbled on your lesson plan by sheer divine intervention. I was thinking about a way to get my after-school students interested in making their own environmentally-friendly e-books. Your children's book project is a welcomed find. Even though my students are only in the 4th and 5th grades, I believe that I can motivate them to create wonderful non-fiction books for younger students. Thanks for the wonderful guidelines. Cindy

Caitlin, I am in the process of working with ReadWriteThink to make a printout with instructions for binding your own books three different ways. I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but it should be available on the site in the next week or two. The title will be "Three Ways to Bind a Handmade Book." Good luck! Jaime

Do you know of any resources available that would allow me to create a finished product-a book. My daughter is forever creating stories and I would love to turn them into books she could share.
