Presentation is Everything
Once you have printed out all your selected pages, assemble them into your own original coloring book. You could punch holes in the coloring pages and bind them with a binder ring. You should include a nice new box of crayons; and be they are Crayola brand crayons; as generic or off brand crayons just do not color nicely. The smell of a new box of Crayola crayons is one of the most favorite smells that is remembered from childhood. I am not associated with Crayola in anyway except I loved coloring with them as a kid.
