Click here for the template of pages for the layout of your book. You will need to make a copy of the template to use.
: The template has the pages in an order so that when you print it off, the pages are front to back and can create a
booklet. Therefore, the template has page numbers on it that might look oddly out of order. They are not. Make sure
you put the right information on the right page. To do this, you must create a story board first that lays out what words
go on what pages and number each of the pages in your storyboard. Then use the storyboard to help you figure out what
words and pictures are on each page. You will then know what goes on (for example) page 2 even though page 2 might be
the fifth page in the template.
