KBN INTRODUCES REAL BOOKS THAT
KIDS CAN ASSEMBLE AND OWN FOR
FREE IN AS LITTLE AS 120 SECONDS –
AS FAST AND EASY AS YOU CAN
PRINT, FOLD, STAPLE AND START
Here from KBN come real books designed so any child can print them out and put them together — with the hands-on satisfaction of having made something very valuable and important all-by-yourself.
To make any real KBN book all you need is a pair of scissors, a few paper clips to help hold the paper steady, and an ordinary home stapler to complete a perfect, professional-looking book. Then just follow the easy one-page instructions provided for every book size and format.
With a little practice a child — or even an adult — can now create an authentic microbook in just two minutes. For example, the one-page, one-side printed sheet from which a KBN microbook is made can be (1) trimmed out of the sheet in approximately 1.0 minute, then (2) folded once in half in 10 seconds, next (3) cut once more along a short line in another 15 seconds, and finally (4) folded just four more times in another final 30 seconds — into a perfect little book. A lightweight ordinary printer paper works best, and no staple is even necessary.
After a simple two-side printout, even much larger KBN minibooks from 16 to 40 pages can be scored, clipped, scissored in half, stacked, folded, and stapled in just 4 to 5 minutes.
Don’t have a color printer, or want to print a free KBN book in an even more economical format? No problem. Take your choice — most KBN books are available for printout in either full color or elegant black & white.
Or you can use simple color pencils to custom-color black & white KBN books yourself — and add your own imagination and style.
Larger KBN luxbook, maxbook and even eurobook sizes, similar to traditional book sizes, require no cutting or trimming and are even easier to make — in formats perfect for coloring books, young adult adventure books and even literary classics.
By developing these formats carefully with the children who will use them, KBN designers have been able to optimize page organization and simplify book completion even more. Every child seems to come up with another new way to read, enjoy, personalize and share their own special collection of free KBN books.
