Book Creator for Chrome- A Game Changer For Chromebooks

In my opinion Book Creator is the most versatile and powerful iPad app available in the primary classroom. It’s now available to use through the Chrome browser. This means that it can be used on PCs, Macs and Chromebooks.

I’ve been waiting for something like this to come along for the many schools we work with who now use Chromebooks. The G Suite of tools are brilliant but to finally have a product where you can write anywhere, record sound, add videos and so much more is amazing.

If you used Book Creator on an iPad you’ll find the book creation process almost identical. At present the children need a Goggle account or Office 365 account to log in. There are plans for a simplified log in for younger children. As a teacher you create a library, children sign in with a Google or Office 365 account and join your library.

I’ve created a short video tutorial I hope you find it helpful. If you are in Bradford or West Yorkshire and you’d like some support please get in touch with me at or @idletim on Twitter

Book Creator also have a wealth of resources for teachers on their site here.
