Literacy Through the Book Arts Summary


Literacy Through the Book Arts by Paul Johnson

This volume introduces teachers and parents to holistic approaches to developing children's writing and visual communication skills through the book arts. Teachers are shown what children are capable of achieving in words, illustrations and design. The book is illustrated with children's artwork, and uses easy-to-follow instructions. Taking what is very old like the baxic concertina book from ancient China, and fusing it with present-day innovations in forming paper, Johnson has produced an approach to literacy development which is designed for teachers of children aged three to eleven years. The book demonstrates how approximately 30 different book forms can be made from single sheets of paper, pens and a pair of scissors. Paul Johnson is the author of "A book of One's Own: Developing Literacy Through Making Books" and "Pop-up Paper Engineering: Cross-Curricular Activities in Design, Technology, English and Art".
