InDesign is the correct tool to use - as it's more of a page layout - but Illustrator would work too.

I would suggest doing this in InDesign.

File>New Document

Select <Print> from the top

Select your width and height

Pages (how many you need)

Add a title if you wish

All the above can be altered at any point anyway.

In same panel - select how much bleed you wish to add - 5mm is  plenty and 3mm is usual (for me anyway)

Clicking Bleed and Slug brings you the section to add this information (although selecting a print document should automatically add at least 5mm bleed by default imo).

Add the amount of Bleed (your print provider can advise you of that).

Now click the Create button.

A new document is created. Your panels may be different than mine:

Click the pages panel to reveal the pages in the document.

Oops - slight error it's setup as facing pages - no  problem

File>Document Setup

Untick Facing Pages

You can also alter your page size, number of pages, bleed etc. from here

Once you are here and have a document started the rest is up to you!

If Eugene Tyson's answer is correct, please mark it as correct.

InDesign is the layout program. Do it in InDesign.

Creating layouts in Illustrator is like hammering a nail with a screwdriver. Sure, you can do it, but it will likely take longer and possibly not turn out exactly the way you want. This is similar to trying to draw or design logos in InDesign.
