Create a Classbook and Become Published Authors!

The Classbook is our most popular program among teachers and is perfect for students grades PreK-6. Publishing provides a real-world experience for a classroom full of bright young students to get creative, learn about the writing process, build upon their reading and writing skills, and work collaboratively to create a book. Publishing a book with your class is cross-curricular and can be as easy as putting an existing lesson onto our paper.

Publish a book for FREE with your class - it’s easy and perfect for grades PreK-6. Motivate your students to do their best work, build upon their reading and writing skills, and create a treasured keepsake. Our publishing kit infuses your lessons with hands-on-fun and guides your students through the writing process. It can be as easy as putting an existing lesson onto our paper!

It's more than a book. Publishing:
  • Motivates students to do their best work
  • Makes teaching writing easy and fun
  • Inspires creativity and hands-on learning
  • Encourages teamwork and collaboration
  • Builds a sense of pride and accomplishment
  • Teaches perseverance and showcases student progress
Why the classbook program is free
For each teacher who publishes a collaborative book with their class, we offer one FREE publishing kit and one copy of the hardcover book FREE to the teacher. All we ask is that parents have the option to pre-order a copy of the classbook.

Parents can pre-order their own copy for just $19.95 with the parent order forms included in your publishing kit. Parents are under no obligation and the teacher’s book is still free. Not every parent orders and that’s okay. Students still love sharing the classroom copy with their parents.

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.
Win money for your school
You're automatically entered for a chance to win a $5,000 grant for your school in our National Book Challenge.
