NEW from Cindy Samul: Free Printable Mini Book

I'm excited to share my new mini book, Caterpillar, with you. Caterpillar is a thoughtful 8-page poem by Dermot McNamara (illustrated by me).

What is a mini book? A mini book is a book and craft project all in one. With a few folds and just one cut you can turn an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper into a book. If you've never made a mini book, just watch the video below. It's easy. Make blank mini books and create your own stories too.
