  • I loved this story of both a family and the lost art of bookbinding by hand. I recommend this one highly.


  • I have always been fascinated by book making! This is a sweet story about the father daughter relationship and the love of a sister!


  • I'm working on entering all the books I've ever read. This book was one of them. I read this book when I was 10 years old. I remember that I liked it a lot.


  • Anna helps her father in his bookbinding business, but business isn't going so well because customers are going to the big houses where they take shortcuts. However, one day Anna helps out more than usual when her mama has a baby. Great look at home-based businesses and bookbinding.


  • Through Anna's love of books and her family, the reader learns a traditional way to bind a book. Those who love the feel of a good book, will enjoy this story. Gorgeous illustrations add to the presence of the book itself.


  • Peaceful, warm book of a young girl who helps her father finish a contract while he attends to the birth of a new child. Lovely.



  • Charming story about a girl who's picked up some bookbinding techniques from her bookbinder father. I enjoyed watching this story unfold; the illustrations were very nice too.


  • A very cute story about how Anna helps her father when he is away with her mother who is giving birth to a little brother. Familial love and the desire to help shines through here.



  • A children's book about bookbinding--you don't see many of those. And the watercolor illustrations are fun. It's a nice little story.
