An example of a paper bag book can be seen above and below. My daughter completed this particular book during her 4th grade English class as a way to publish her personal narrative essay. She chose to write about her experience purchasing her hamster.
Making a paper bag book is very easy and very inexpensive. One of the aspects of paper bag books that I enjoy is that it is very easy to make different sized books - just use different sized paper bags. The above book is about 8" by 8" but we have also made books with smaller bags. One can also easily find white bags or bags in different colors at craft stores. I have included links below to simple instructions for making paper bag books.
