How a Book Is Made | Little Lit Book Series

A charming and humorous look at the life of a book—from manuscript to finished copy.  There are a couple of outdated terms in the book (it was first published in 1988, after all) but it still possesses the unmistakable spirit of publishing with its endless hours of work and many, many dedicated individuals involved in the lengthy process of bringing a book to life.  And when the book joyously makes its way to the hands of a reader:

“A book for me!

I can read it.

I can smell it.

I can keep it forever.”

How a Book Is Made was written and illustrated by Aliki and published by HarperCollins.
