Book Creator

I have used this wonderful app for over two years in my classroom with pupils as young 8 and as old as 19.

However, there is no age limit as many adults love the arrangement and use it to publish and sell books in iBook’s. Book Creator is easy enough to use that pupils can use it with minimal tuition leaving tons of time for creative exploration.

How to use it!

Book Creator performs as advertised – students create digital books. First, students choose a format for their book; landscape, portrait, or square. Once chosen, users are directed to the title page. The title page, like all the pages in the app, allows for a variety of creative additions such as background colour, text, images, and even sound. Text colour, font, and size are customizable. Images can be imported from the device camera roll. However, Book Creator also offers the user the option to insert hand-drawn images using the drawing tools included in the app. As a child’s story grows, the number of pages can grow too. Pages can be added as they are needed.

The software provides ample opportunities for innovation. Sound effects can be added for whatever the child desires. swirling winds, animal sounds, and roaring thunder to name a few, your choice of background music for each page can be included as well.

How do I use it?

In my classroom, students write and illustrate their stories and then record themselves reading them. Child-created books have traditionally been treasured keepsakes by parents the world over. Recording child’s voices as they read make these memories that much sweeter.
