Eliza's Hand Bound Book

Eliza surprised us yesterday by walking up to us with a completely handmade-by-her book. She created it unsupervised and “came up with it with her brain”, which is “no one told me how to do it” in Eliza-speak. She even put a dedication page on the inside cover.

What we found most interesting about Eliza’s book was that she bound it, inside and outside, using Scotch tape. She said she “invented” this method after looking at some of her books, which helped her “figure out how to do it”.
