1. First, sign up (or sign in)

Don't forget to switch to the Teacher sign in!

Book Creator teacher sign in page

You'll need to go to

2. The first time you sign in, you'll be guided through creating your first library

3. Next, invite your students by letting them know your library code

Students sign in with their usual school account and then type in the library code. We support Google, Microsoft, Clever and Classlink accounts. If your students don't have any of these accounts you can also set up student logins within Book Creator for easy sign in using a link or QR code.

4. Teach your first lesson

If you're introducing Book Creator to your students for the first time, check our lesson plans and templates for all grade levels.

Follow the lesson plans to introduce Book Creator in a structured way. Each page of the templates introduces students to a different feature in Book Creator, ranging from adding shapes, to using text to speech, to formatting a page to improve the design.

Some teachers feel it's best to introduce Book Creator to students with a blank canvas - if that works for your students, that's fine - everyone learns differently, and many kids benefit from learning through play.

It all starts with the + button to add content and the i button (Inspector) to customize the content. Your students will be making books in no time!

If you want to let the kids experiment but have a focused purpose in mind, why not start with an About Me book?

5. Become a master of Book Creator with our in-app training course

The best way to get to grips with the basics of Book Creator is to become a Book Creator Certified Author. This self-paced course is divided into two levels, and will help you understand all of the features of Book Creator and how to apply them to your classroom.
