|Nellie Edge Little Book Black-Line Master|
Each Nellie Edge Read and Sing Little Book™ comes with black-line masters for child-size Little Books that match the text and illustrations of the Big Book. The child-size Little Book format is designed to best accommodate the Big Book test. Find the layout that matches the Little Book you have purchased and follow the instructions.
Make Friends with Mother Goose, Volumes 1 and 2 and I Have A Cat (Yo Tengo Un Gato) are the Little Books using this format. Eight small pages are printed on one side of the master copy. If instruction is given in small groups with guidance, even kindergarten-age children can learn to fold these books. Once children master the fold-a-book technique, they will eagerly use it to create blank books (any size) for their own writing and illustrating purposes.
Cut-And-Staple Book Instructions
All black-line masters, except those listed above, are printed with illustrations and text back to back. After photocopying back to back, the sheet or sheets are cut in half or thirds and stapled to form an 8, 12, or 16-page child-size Little Book.
