Remote Learning with Book Creator for Schools

Turn your kids into published authors

Book Creator is a simple-to-use app for making digital books on your computer or tablet. Once kids get started on a book, you’ll see how engaged they are and how motivated they can be to create books for the world to see.

Getting started with Book Creator

Support for Remote Learning

We have two versions of our app - Book Creator online, for use with teachers and students only, and Book Creator for iPad, which can be used by anyone.

Book Creator online

To use Book Creator online, your child's teacher must set up an account first. They’ll create a library and invite you to join with a library code. You sign in first with a Google, Office 365 or Clever account, then enter the library code.

We’ve written some guidance for parents (and teachers) for setting up Book Creator for home learning.

If your teacher doesn’t have a Book Creator account, or you want to make your own books offline from home without having to sign in, you can download our iPad app from the App Store.

Just be aware the teacher can’t see your books like they can with our online app.

Download on the App Store

Once you’re signed into Book Creator online, you’ll want to either create a new book or copy a book/template that your teacher has assigned to you. Here’s Ruby with some tips on how to do that.


Below are some examples of books made by teachers, students and families as part of their homeschooling experience.
