I have used this with students as young as 1st grade 6-7 years old. we have uploaded these to Google Drive, obtained a URL and created QR codes.
It is a fabulous way to show teachers how App mashing works too. The possibilities are endless.

Book Creator was the perfect tool for my students’ “Learner’s Dictionaries” that they added to all semester. The Getting Started tutorial is wonderful and meant that I did not have to create my own instructions or how-to guide for them. They were off and running, adding their own definitions and images. This is a great cross-curricular K-12 app and well worth the price.

Book Creator for iPad is a great authoring tool that can be used from KS1 to KS3. I have used it to make simple talking picture books with Year 1 pupils. I have also used it with Year 8 pupils to create a log of the learning in their Science lessons. I great all rounder and should be considered by any school as part of the app collection.

Our middle school science teachers are using this tool for students to create science journals on iPads.

This is one of the "cool" application on iPad. Creating ebooks has never been easier. You can take a picture, type words, and arrange you own design. Basically, anything is possible. Some of my students enjoy using this app, even little kids. I would recommend this to any parent who wants to teach their children now to write early. As this is a great tool that will help advance their learning.

This seems SO MUCH easier than using Pages and even iBook Author. Especially for younger students!

The easiest app to create great books available. Allows you to define how complex you want to make the book using different complimentary apps to create a layered approach (icomic to photgene to book creator) to simply adding an image and text…great.

Limits what you can do with an image once imported…no rotate option.

My third graders and I love Book Creator! Earlier this year, we used it to create one class book. That in itself was exciting. The newest version of Book Creator allows export in PDF or iBook format and allows students to record themselves reading their stories. My students created a book in a week and we emailed them to parents today and posted PDF versions on our class blog. What a great way to share writing! Students used the camera on the iPad to take pictures, used images they found on the Internet, or created their own with Doodle Buddy and imported them into Book Creator.

It's intuitive and easy to learn. Well worth the $4.99 cost! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this app!

Book Creator is an app that can be used to create eBooks. It is very simple to manipulate…easy for kids of any age. It allows you to record audio and place on each page as well. Import pictures from your camera roll. Pictures can be taken by the camera, saved from a site, or created in another app and incorporated through saving or an iPad screenshot.
