Your kids will learn a lot as they make the Cultures of the World Book.

Book crafts for kids explore techniques both old and new. For instance, the paper craft of book-binding began in the second century for the protection of old parchment manuscripts. By the Middle Ages the art of bookbinding had risen to great heights. Books were rare and precious, and many were covered with beautiful designs that were true works of art.

You can encourage a love of books by spending time with your kids to create your own works of art. Whether they're just learning their numbers or ready for a more challenging craft project, book crafts are fun, and educational too!
