Websites That Help Students Create/Publish Books

By Beth Newingham on February 13, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

As I've said before, there's nothing more motivating for students than knowing that others will read their work. Try one of these websites for creating/publishing their books:

StudentTreasures.com: With this website, create FREE class books for grades K–2 and individual hardcover books for students in grades 3–5. They send you kits so that students can write their story and add illustrations to each page. The kits are then sent back to the company, which binds them. Parents and grandparents can then purchase reprints of the books. View sample books on their website.

StudentPublishing.com: This site offers a FREE Internet Storybook program that allows students to create their books online and then receive a paperback copy of the book to keep. They also have a mail-in program through which students can create their manuscript and illustrations on paper at school and send them in to be published. The final product can show the student’s original handwriting, or the story can be typeset. Teachers in lower grades can also create a FREE class book that is durably bound in a hardback leatherette cover. View sample books.

Student Publishing no longer does this free. They changed their policy to have a $250 minimum order to get the "free" copies and then changed their policy again to only receive the books you pay for. I like the software with this program, but wanted you to be aware that the policies have changed.
