    Excellent, going to do this with my 8yrs grandchild as she loves writing and drawing Thank you

    You can make larger books by using plain sheets of paper. I made mine with folded paper so that I could use paper with writing on one side already and hide the writing. I try to design all my projects to use recycled materials.
