Pingpong Perry Experiencing How A Book is Made, is absolutely one of my new favorite books! It is definitely a great children’s book that I plan on using in my classroom.

An updated overview of how a book is made, starting with an author's idea and ending with the marketing team. It reminded me of Aliki's How a Book is Made from the 1980s. Pair this with the classic Reading Rainbow episode, Simon's Book to show students how the actual printing printing press works.

I used this book when talking about how much work authors have to do to get a book published, although I tend to talk the kids through the pictures rather than actually read it. I like the silly alliterations and the goofy book topics, they really grab my first graders attention. It's not perfect for my needs, but is a bit easier to use in a lesson than What Do a Authors Do.

This book was a realistic fiction book that documented how a book gets published and released. I would use this book to show the writing process for authors.
