Why Publish a Book With Your Class

There is nothing more gratifying than to see your students excited to learn. When you publish a book with your class, you’ll watch your students’ faces light up as they become published authors and create a professionally bound book just like they would find in the library. This free classbook publishing project is a unique experience that will get your students excited about writing and inspire their best effort.

Turn your students into a team of writers and illustrators as you walk them through the journey to becoming real published authors.

It’s more than just a book… your class publishing project:

  • Motivates students to do their best work
  • Makes teaching writing easy and fun
  • Inspires creativity and hands-on learning
  • Encourages teamwork and collaboration
  • Teaches perseverance and showcases student progress
  • Creates a treasured keepsake
  • Builds a sense of pride and accomplishment
  • Strengthens the home to school connection

Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what educators say about publishing with Studentreasures:

The students were so excited to write and publish a “real” book. Their enthusiasm was amazing! This project motivated even my most reluctant readers to write, revise, edit and write more!

My students loved creating a book! It was a great learning experience for ALL of us. There is sheer magic in seeing their little faces light up when they see their story as part of a book!

I can’t think of a more exciting project for a child of any age than to actually publish a hard bound book that they have written and illustrated. This is truly an opportunity of a lifetime!
