Whether you need an easy activity for the classroom or an at-home project for the weekend, making books with your child is the perfect choice! Children will absolutely love the opportunity to make their own book, especially after they’re filled with inspiration and determination from all the great books they’ve read at school! Keep reading to find some great resources for this simple activity and a free download of “Read a Book – Make a Book” that’s based on the popular kids’ book, The BFG!
The BFG was one of my favorite books as a kid, and still is so popular that it’s one of the referenced titles in Read a Book – Make a Book! After students read the book, they’ll get to engage in making their own pull-down giant book and other activities based on the book! For example, this unit also includes a poem, drawing instructions, and other small projects to do in the classroom or at home!
