Although I almost can't believe that another season has passed us by already, it would seem that indeed, winter is about to begin and it is time to share the newest edition of Alphabet Glue with you all! Volume Four has officially arrived, and I am very pleased to be able to send it your way (as well as to have gotten it finished before the any-day-now arrival of our new baby boy). Whew!
double-sided center-stitched books
This latest issue of Alphabet Glue contains all the bookish entertainment you've come to know and love from previous volumes, plus a few extra bits of whimsical fun to encourage everyone to get into the spirit of the season. There are booklists, of course, as well as printable activities, papercraft projects and even a bit of kitchen table science.
Volume Four also includes some special activities and inspiration around those favorites among flightless birds: penguins. Perch a plucky penguin atop your otherwise plain pencil or fold a tiny origami penguin parade. Read up on penguins both fictional and real and maybe, just maybe, craft a shrink plastic penguin to take up residence in a do-it-yourself snowglobe of the simplest order.

All penguin puns aside, the winter issue of Alphabet Glue is designed to provide plenty of opportunities to engage in cold weather creativity. Make a book, play a family storybuilding game, make a set of bookmarks to share your favorite reads with a friend. Decorate the living room with sparkling snowflakes made from salt or haul home a big bag full of winter tales to sit by the fire with.
I more than understand that winter can be a busy time; there are snowmen to be built and there is hot chocolate to be had. Not to worry. These projects and activities will be happy to wait around for the housebound afternoon when you need them most.
