BOOK MAKING

 

Ancient books in India were made from palm leaves and carried by Buddhist monks across Asia in their coat sleeves!  Explore the ancient history and importance of palm leaf books, along with a look at contemporary life in India.  Create a multi-paged book to keep as a journal or for writing and illustrating stories later.
