A Christmas Book

by Rebecca

Modern technologies such as 'digital printing' and 'print on demand' have made it easy to produce books in small numbers at a reasonable cost. The technology is just the same as is used to turn snapshots from your digital camera into printed photo albums.


Modern technologies such as 'digital printing' and 'print on demand' have made it easy to produce books in small numbers at a reasonable cost. The technology is just the same as is used to turn snapshots from your digital camera into printed photo albums. This makes it feasible to make a book as a Christmas project in your Sunday school. The books could be sold to members of your congregation to raise money for new materials for the Sunday school or to benefit a charity. It would be particularly attractive to the parents and grand parents of pupils in your Sunday school.

One idea would be to ask each child in your Sunday school to draw a picture of a scene from the Christmas story, ranging from Angel Gabriel's first visit to Mary to the Epiphany.

Another idea would be to ask some children to draw and others to write the Christmas story in their own words. You could then use the drawings to illustrate the texts. Try and arrange that each child draws or describes a different scene, so that you do not end up with a lot of similar pictures or texts.

Scan the pictures into your computer and put the scanned pictures into the software provided by the printer. Put appropriate text next to the pictures and send it off to the printers.
