Have your child create their very own alphabet book. I want to ensure that this book is very colorful and engaging. I will use construction paper for the pages of this book and bind it with glue and tape.
- 29 sheets of construction paper
- 2 large board books or clip boards
- hot glue or rubber cement (I used hot glue for my first book but I will use rubber cement for the next book. The rubber cement will work in between each page easier).
- clear tape or other tape

Step 1: Put together 28 sheets of construction paper and place a book on the bottom and the top, leaving a bit of the paper sticking out for binding. Put the clamps on each side of the books and paper stack.
Step 2: Use hot glue or rubber cement to glue the binding together and wait for it to dry
Step 3: Wrap clear tape around the glued binding
Step 4: Print and glue the alphabet_book_cover to the front cover of the book. In my photo I did step 5 before step 4. Your book will look better with the binding strip on top of your cover coloring sheet.
Step 5: Cut 3 inch wide strip of construction paper to create a binding strip. Glue the strip around the front and back of the binding. you can secure the edges of the binding strip using tape.

I purchased a complete alphabet book series by Jane Belk. My “A” book is the first in the A-Z series. I found these books on Ebay but you can read the EBooks by Jane Belk Moncure on Openlibrary.com with a free account.
