These unique books have strings attached-which makes them interesting for kids to create! Early readers improve recall, sequence, and comprehension skills, too.
With your family, read a favorite story together. A story with one main character, such as Little Red Riding Hood, works best.
Using Crayola® Colored Pencils and Crayons on white paper or a recycled file folder, draw the story's main character. Cut it out with Crayola Scissors. Finish designing the back side of your character.
To create your book, fold several sheets of white paper in half and staple at the fold.
Attach a long piece of string or yarn to the main character with Crayola School Glue or clear adhesive tape. Glue, tape, or staple the string to the book along the fold in the center of the book. Dry.
Write and illustrate the title of your book on the cover. Retell the story in your own words and pictures on the pages inside. Plan your illustrations so the main character on the string can pop into place on every page as you read the story.
