Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Stick With Word

Avoid this junk like the plague! They use bots as a form of customer service and don't bother with human interactions. The App doesn't work with the online version without jumping through hoops. When you finally get a book transferred and uploaded to the website only a few of the pages will open. It is not a good workflow at all. The owners of this site really need to rethink how doing business with customers is done. Bots are not teh answer.

Fun with Book Creator!

I teach first grade and am excited to use the Book Creator app with my students. Children can use their imagination to create books on any topic they choose. They can add many features including, pictures, text and drawings. They can also add voice to their story. Children love creating their own stories!
