Book Creator

By Rose Castro and Martha Sudo



In the classroom, teachers or kids can
create individual pages that become
books. Once they're familiar with the
basic functions, it's time for kids and
teachers to start creating: fiction or
nonfiction books, how-to manuals with
video and audio instructions, photo
books, comic strips, and more. Book
Creator for iPad is an amazingly easy-touse
digital book-making tool. With
guidance, even kids in early elementary
school grades can use this technology
tool to produce and publish their own
simple books or comics with images,
videos, and audio. Readers can access
published books via iBooks or other online
sources, or books can be printed on
paper.

You can go to app.bookcreator.com,
register as a teacher and start creating
books right away. As a teacher, you can
have 40 books free for your
classroom. Book Creator for Chrome is
ready to try for free! Go to
Book Creator
