CHOOSE YOUR LANGUAGE

WHICH LANGUAGE?

  •  Choose the language you need from the page titled: Languages Available
    Or
  • Choose the Country that you may be traveling to.
  • Find out ahead of time exactly which language you will be needing. Many countries have multiple languages.  It won’t do you any good in Kenya to have Luo if you will be ministering to Maasai.
  • Click on the name of the language to download.  The names are hyperlinked to Adobe Acrobat PDF files.  In many newer computers it is not necessary to actually have Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to open one of the coloring book files.  But in older computers, it may be necessary to have Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer.  Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free, and freely distributable, software that lets you view and print Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Everything you need to know

US size paper

  • 8.5 X 11” paper is standard letter size paper used in the US.
  • You can make an 8.5 X 11” book using 11X17” paper, folded over and stapled in the middle.  Many copiers will do this automatically, by feeding in the 24 pages of the coloring book, and using the booklet function on the copy machine.
  • Or, you can print out on 8.5 X 11” paper, and then have the book bound like the samples below.
  • Print out the book that you need. Some of the books have more than 24 pages – there are two “prayer” pages included.
  • Pick only one – that of the child praying, or that of the woman in the wheelchair praying – for your book. These booklets are 24 pages so that you can use 6 sheets of paper, front and back, two sided.

A4 Paper - Most of the World

Small size booklet made with A4 paper

A4 PAPER is used in most of the world, except for the US (and maybe Canada).
Folded in half and stapled, it makes a perfect size small book with a font size that is still readable.
Most languages list the files as A4 or 8.5X11”

How to make booklets - easily

image5

   I have been using Create Booklet for Mac and it is absolutely wonderful - especially when I have an 8.5X11 document (some of the CBs) and want to print it - small size - on A4 paper, or vice versa.  

   You can use Create Booklet for lots of different projects, but it works great in printing Good News Coloring Books on a home computer - in booklet form. 

   Some computers can make booklets with pdfs in their Print section, but if yours doesn't, Create Booklet or Create Booklet 2 is a great way to make them. 

   You would just need an extra-long stapler to be able to staple in the center.

BINDING OPTIONS

Extra-long staplers from office supply stores.

The easiest way is to print the GNCB out small-size, two-sided, and staple in the middle.  Or you can go to a printer or office-supply store and have them spiral-bound or comb-bound. These are more expensive, but look nice.

FOR ELDER/NURSING HOME MINISTRY

Some of the books are labeled "Large print" or "Nursing Home".  They are single language so the font can be larger. Print these out on larger size paper (11X17 in the US, or A3 elsewhere).  The font is larger to make it easier for the elderly to read.  Some have a woman in a wheelchair on front cover.
