The Big Book Creator Activity book

Dan KempBlog, Elementary / Primary, Middle School, News, Remote Learning

Here’s a fun new book to help with homeschooling in the coming weeks!

Take a look at this new ebook – The Big Book Creator Activity book. This activity book was created by us here at the Book Creator team to help give students and parents something fun and educational to work with at home.

Flick through the pages below—but this book’s not for reading, it’s for writing in!


How to get your copy

Teachers, if you’re using Book Creator with an online account (and you can get one for free at app.bookcreator.com), then simply click on the big button below and a popup will appear, asking you which library you want to put the book in.

If you want to make it available to your students, put it in the library you’ve already shared with them. If you haven’t created a shared library yet, follow this guidance for how to set everything up for you and your students.

When you’ve added the book to your shared library, let your students know and they can copy the book so they have their own version to work on.

Installing the Big Book Creator Activity Book
This is the screen that will appear when you click the button. Use the dropdown to choose which library you want to add it to.

How to install on Book Creator for iPad

Parents and students, if you’re not set up with a school that’s given you access to Book Creator online, you’ll need to use our iPad app to import this activity book. Book Creator for iPad is available for $4.99 from the App Store.

You’ll need to use the link below to download the book, and then import it into your Book Creator app.

  1. Download the book (30.3mb). Navigate to this page on your iPad first and click on the download link. The book is stored in Google Drive, but you don’t need to have a Google Drive account.
  2. Open Book Creator, and from your bookshelf tap on the books icon beneath any book, choose Import Book > Files and open the Recents tab. You should see ‘The Big Book Creator Activity Book.epub’ – tap on that and it will import into Book Creator.

Edit: I’ve posted some more detailed step-by-step instructions on Twitter in response to a teacher who was having difficulties.

  1. Hi,
    I am a Creative Writing teacher in one of the semi-rural schools in Albany, NY. My seniors usually did their original Children’s Picture Book with blank books (hard copy) that I provided to them.
    With all that is going on, I was introduced to Book Creator and was wondering if I could get the link and the directions to how my students could use Book Creator? In this way, students could get the feel of creating their own Children’s Picture Book and someday being able to publish it!

    Thanks.

  2. The book you created looks fantastic. Unfortunately we are a title one school with many low income families, and now many have lost their jobs. Asking them to purchase the app is not something that, personally, I want to put on them. They have enough stress with now needing to homeschool their child(ren).
    Would your company be willing to donate the program until the end of the school year for them. I have not used a teacher online account, and I see now that I can download one. So if families can have limited free access I would love to share this with them. The children love Book Creator and families that see them working on it and feel that they can afford it may do that after their trial period ends. Just a thought. Thank you for creating an amazing product. We do use the free version at school so the children area familiar with it.

  3. I love this app. I am creating great books for my kindergarten students to read at home. This big book of activities is amazing!! I love, love, love this!! Thank you!!

  4. I LOVE the new activity book!!! I have added it to my class library. I love how I can edit some of the pages to work for my specific grade level content! An awesome resource!!! Thanks!

  5. Thank you Dan and the team. We find your resources gripping, amazing and easy to follow. Our students will benefit especially during the troubled and uncertain times. We will talk it through at our team meeting.

    Stay safe and take care.

  6. I found on my iPad 3rd Gen I had to download to my Google drive as it did not have the downloads button to go directly to Book Creator.

  7. Hi Dan,
    I have downloaded this wonderful activity book, and it is in my library but would like to know how the students make a copy of this so they can complete their pages using your templates?

  8. This is amazing!
    I love this so much I shared it 40 times!
    How did you add the butten for the word search?
    Best,

  9. Just wondering. If I made a book on a certain topic or for a certain subject, can it be shared during a live Google Meet class? We are going virtual this month, and this would make presenting material so dynamic – I work exclusively with moderate to severely impaired students on the autism spectrum. They can handle only short bits of information virtually and really have to be engaged. Thoughts?
