How do I use Acrobat Reader to read the books?

If that doesn’t work, you can right-click the links and select “Save Link As…” to save the Acrobat file to your hard disk. Double-click the saved file and see if it launches Acrobat Reader.

How can I print the books using Acrobat Reader?

Acrobat Reader can easily print all the books. To print the picture books and save paper, you might want to print multiple pages per sheet of paper. To do this, select “Multiple Pages per Sheet” on the print dialog and set “Page Order” to horizontal. This produces a layout that you can cut, fold, and bind together. While experimenting with Acrobat Reader, you might want to print just the first 2 sheets worth of paper to make sure you got it right.
