SAMPLE BOOKS: “How to Eat a Cookie” / “Beyond Books” (Monday Improv) / “A Brief History of Everything Everywhere & More” / “The Great War” / “Voyage of the Sasquatch” / …

Today we’ll take a simple cardboard box & turn it into a tiny home for your micro-books. Then, of course, we’ll draw more micro-books to put in it!
