Make A Book! 
Providing a sense of ownership to books is an important aspect to reading, especially with younger readers.  Making a book maximizes this idea.  Keeping in mind that it takes a little time (about an hour) to make these books, the links below are different ways to make books and they should definitely be checked out.     
Make A Dry Mount Book

This is the most "involved" book making project.  It includes a piece of cardboard or harder material than paper, wallpaper, blank paper, glue, an iron, and a needle and thread.  It is definitely cool, and you'll be quite impressed with the results!

Make A Character book

If you want to focus on a certain character in a story, this is a perfect activity.  It is fairly simple to make, and requires a sheet of paper, scissors, colored pencils, and different colors of construction paper.

Make an easy book
This is a link to making an easy book.  This is perfect for younger readers because it is made out of one or only a few sheets of paper, so it is more durable, whereas the above two are a little more delicate.  This activity requires a piece of paper or two, and some scissors.
