Wonderful Kids books
I am a teacher and bought these books for my students to create their own stories. These books are sturdy and are a great price! My students painted the front and back covers and the paint came out great!

These books are very inconsistant in quality. I bought several packages. Some were Grade A quality, while others were factory rejects! At least two are completely unusable. I'm very satisfied with the ones that are higher quality, as they will make beautiful books. If you want something that is a gift quality or a real keepsake, I recommend buying more than you need to account for waste.

For kids with a big imagination
I bought this for my 6yr old son to write some of his many stories. The books were perfect for him. They are small board books, perfect for the price and the imagination.

Design your own story book
Kids of all ages like to write their own stories. They can use markers, glue things in or even cover these books with scrapbook paper to make their own books to give away or keep. My kids love these books and are always asking for more!

Not the best quality
I ordered these books for my children to decorate for Christmas. I'm happy with them but not ecstatic about the quality. They crack when you open them and I'm nervous that after a few uses the binding will come completely apart. The price is great for the amount you are getting, but would be nicer to have a little higher quality cardboard/binding.

I purchased similar blank board books in a special needs catalog for my son. I paid $5 for one book and for these I pay $10, but get 6 books.
Only negative is that these appear to come in only one size, but it's definitely an adequate size for my uses.
Already recommended to teachers! GREAT VALUE.

I don't like projects where too much of the work is done for children. The contents of this book is entirely from the children's imagination.

I purchased this as a surprise for my twin sons who love to make books. I thought they would enjoy something a little more durable than construction paper. The books arrived with all the corners smashed. When I opened a book the binding cracked and fell apart in my hands. I order from Oriental often and was greatly disappointed.

Another hit at the party!
This is the second time I've ordered these blank books for my daughter's birthday party and once again they were a big hit. The girls (11 & 12 year olds) even requested we have them again next year. It was a sleepover and we took pictures throughout the night, printed them and had the girls create an awsome scrapbook later in the evening. Just add some stickers for the theme of the party, it's a great activity to keep them busy and an great keepsake!
