Capture Your Child’s Creativity!

Your child can write and illustrate their own book! Encourage your child to tell his or her story with the Studentreasures Author Kit!

This hands-on writing activity motivates your child to write and inspires their creativity by publishing their stories in a real hardcover book they’ll treasure for years.

Just like in a “real book”, your child will create the elements of their book from the illustrations and text to designing their book cover, title, dedicated and ‘about the author’ pages. Whether an autobiography, short story, book of poems or picture book – the Author Kit lets your child’s imagination run wild.

The Author Kit includes everything your child needs to write, illustrate and publish a professionally bound, hardcover book. For just $34.95, your kit includes a workbook, a pack of markers and step-by-step instructions. Plus, the Write Thing and his friends will help guide your child through the publishing process.

Frequently Asked Questions!


Q. How do I achieve the best, most colorful results when creating my book?
A. For illustrating, use washable markers because they produce the most vivid reprints (try to stay away from the bright neon colors as they do not reproduce well). For writing, use black ink. Do not use colored pencils or crayons, as they do not reproduce well when printed.

Q. Can I paste and glue photos onto the kit pages?
A. You bet. Simply scanning the photo directly onto the illustration pages is the preferred method, but if you do choose to adhere photos, we recommend using a glue stick. We recommend using only high-resolution images for the best results.

Q. Can we use White-Out on the pages?
A. You can! However, it may leave light “shadows” on the finished pages. For this reason, we recommend using it sparingly. Also, it is better to use the white-out correction tape rather than the white-out correction fluid.

Q. Are there any guarantees on the published books?
A. Yes, there’s no risk to parents who choose to purchase copies of the book. Our books are 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed. If parents purchase their child’s book and are in any way dissatisfied, they can return it directly to us for a replacement or full refund. We will issue a replacement or complete refund.
