Needle and Thread
1. Place colored squares on top of each other in specific order (black, red, white, and yellow).
2. Wrap length of green felt around colored squares to form a book binding.
3. Sew a 1″ seam, down green felt side making sure to sew through all colored squares.
The seam should bind the book and its pages together.
Braided yarn can be used to hold the booklet together. You would need to punch a hole in the material.
Your Wordless Book doesn’t have to be square. Example: heart shapes are cute, although time-consuming.

About the Wordless Book and Wordless Bracelet
Teen Missions International sends out thousands of Wordless Books and Bracelets to countries all over the world each year. These books are used to bridge the language barrier that would otherwise hinder the preaching of the Gospel message. You can help to change a life with the good news of Jesus Christ by building these evangelism tools today!
The Wordless Book is a tool to help you share the Good News of Jesus Christ! Famous London preacher Charles Spurgeon was first known to use it in a message to hundreds of orphans in 1866.
Many individuals learn through what they see. A visual example gives the person a reference for the information they are hearing. The different colors in the Wordless Book can help you remember what to say when sharing the steps to receiving Christ.
The Wordless Book can be used anywhere. Its size allows it to be easily transported. It is inexpensive, so it can be left behind. It is a gift that will remind your listeners of the Gospel truth.
The Wordless Book can be used in many different circumstances. Large groups, small groups, and one-on-one situations are just a few examples of its usefulness.
Although you might assume the Wordless Book is designed primarily for children, adults can also be effectively reached by it. Never underestimate the capacity of your audience to enjoy something new and different.
