Storybook Maker is a book creating app for kids. I have reviewed several book creator apps, and this one is another great addition to the book creator library. I like this one for its versatility and intuitive kids’ friendly interface.
Once kids start a new book, they can choose a template for each new page. There are several templates to choose from, with different picture and text layouts. They can also choose to work on a blank page and design their own template.
On each page, kids can input pictures from the photo library, or take a phone with the camera. They can add text via typing, or write on the screen with the pen offered in the app. For the typed text, there are many font, colors to choose from. Kids can also define the size of the text or the thickness of each stroke.
Kids can also record some sound if they prefer, it can either be them talking or explain the page they created, or just some background sound effects. Built in the app, are over 20 sound clips for kids to choose from if they don’t want to make their own, it ranges from beach sound, applause, to Hip Hop music, to soft piano music.
For each page, there are also pre-designed backgrounds and borders for kids to use to make each page look more professional.
Kids can draw pictures, or they can pick some stickers from the repertoire. I like the choices of the stickers: especially those that moves. For example, there is a ball that actually bounces up and down.
All books kids created are saved in the library for them to read or edit at a later time. They can also share the book as a PDF file via email. This is the only limitation I see from this app. Since all the video and sound effects are lost on PDF. For those who want to see the book with sound, they have to have the app also.
