As publishers, the students sewed the pages, including an end paper, together at the spine with a needle and thread. Next they glued a fabric cover and paper spine to two cardboard cover pieces. The end papers were then glued to the inside of the cardboard covers. Finally, students attached a cover picture with title, author, and illustrator to the front of the book and laminated it with a protective film.

Ola School students in grades 2 and 3 display books they recently completed as a Library Skills project in which they learned the parts of a book and how a book is published. Children played the roles of author, illustrator and publisher. Each book included an illustrated half-page title page, a two-page title page with title, author, illustrator, and publisher, and a copyright page. Stories written for a school assignment were divided into four parts and typed. Each part became a book page with an illustration.
