I’m delighted to share that our first graders’ eBook, “Snowmen Having Fun”, is now available for online viewing. Our writing was inspired by the book Snowmen All Year by Caralyn Buehner. It contains colorful illustrations, stories, and audio narrations done by the students. Click on this link to read the book online:

Notes for Educators: Our stories were made in computer lab using KidPix software. Miss Bosch printed and scanned all the stories and put them into the wonderful Book Creator app where each student made an audio recording of their story. Book Creator now allows you to publish your books directly online. This feature is so easy – simply click a button for publication. I am very excited for teachers to have an opportunity to have a user friendly way to share their students’ work with an online audience.
Book Creator is currently available for $4.99 US for iOS. There is a lite version which will let you try out the app and create one book. It also is available for Chrome.
We have been excited to share our books with family and friends, but we are hoping that we can connect with even a wider “Authentic Audience” around the world. We would love for other students and classes to download our book. If you do, could you please leave us a comment so we can know who has been reading our books!
If you have a class that has created an eBook, we would love to do a book exchange with you! Please leave a comment with a link to the book file or contact Miss Bosch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter at @karlyb.
