Introducing Rainbow Rumpus Printable Picture Books!

Great news! Now you can enjoy Rainbow Rumpus stories in your very own picture books! We designed these books with our favorite artists in mind–you! Print out the pages, put them together, read the story, and then illustrate it however you want. Share the finished book with family, friends, neighbors, classmates–and read it over and over again. It’s yours!

At Rainbow Rumpus, we’re grateful that the internet allows us to get new stories to readers all over the world each month. But we also know that there is nothing quite like being able to hold a book in your hands or read a bedtime story. So now you can. And look for more picture books from Rainbow Rumpus in 2010!

How to Download and Print

The pdf books below are designed to print on either blackand white or color printers, on US letter-size (8 1/2 by 11 inches) paper. If you are printing in black and white, we recommend that you download the black and white pdf rather than printing the color pdf in grayscale.

You will need Adobe Reader to open the pdfs. This is a free application available for many operating systems including PC and Mac, here.

To download the pdfs:

For PCs, right-click on the link and choose “Save Target As”.
For Macs, option-click on the link and choose “Save”.

To print:

  1. Open Adobe Reader.
  2. Choose file –> open, and select the pdf file you want to print.
  3. Select file –> print, or just click on the printer icon.
  4. Choose Print from the dialogue box.
