How to Repair a Spine on a Child's Hardcover Book
A Child's Bible That Needs Repair:
Repairing a Well-Loved Book:
Sometimes a book gets broken when it is loved too much. My grand-daughter loved her first Bible and read it almost every day. She was less than 5 years old, but she had been taught not to treat books badly. Her grandmother made sure of that! But sometimes general wear and tear result in the need for repairs no matter how careful we are.
If you have a beloved book with a broken spine like this one, I hope these instructions for making this repair help you out. Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question in the comment section at the bottom of this page.
Here are the supplies that you will need to make this repair:
- Scissors to trim loose paper
- Brushes: one to dust the book off and one to apply glue
- PVA Glue, aka white glue, but not "school glue"
- Bamboo skewers
- Rubber bands
Good Glue for Book Repairs:
This is one of my favorite glues for making repairs to damaged books.
