Use Little Story Maker to Create Custom Books on Your ipad

Screen Shot 2012-12-21 at 9.04.38 AM Little Story Maker is a great little app that adults and children can use to create their own custom books on their iPads. The app provides book templates that you complete with your own images, text, and voice narration. All of the books that you create are stored in your Little Story Maker bookshelf.

To create a book in Little Story Maker start by adding a title, add a cover image by selecting from your iPad’s camera roll, then choose a template for your book. On each page you can add an image from your camera roll and type the text for your page. If you want to add narration to your book simply click the “record audio” button after typing your text. Then you can add narration that will play on the page.

After you create your book it is saved in your Little Story Maker bookshelf. When you read the book you will have three options to choose from. You can read it on your own, have it read to you, or you can tap “auto play” to have the book read and pages turned for you.

Little Story Maker is a free app that could be used by elementary school students to create short stories about real events that they’ve observed and photographed with their iPads. For example, you could take your students on a walking tour of the neighborhood and have them write a story about it when they return to your classroom.

    I’ve tried, its use is very simple and motivating for students. The application is very unstable … and sadly it does not have sharing options to send.

    This app is not getting good reviews, but I downloaded it anyway since it is free. Very unstable for my young users. I like storykit better.

    I love this app but because there is no way to share it with parents I have found that teachers don’t want to use it.
