All Write Now

You’ve got yourself a real storyteller.

There’s the one about the dog that ate his homework. And the one about the vase no one saw fall.

Help him weave his stories into a book at Blurb, an online publishing platform that enables anyone to design, share, and sell quality books.

Blurb’s free downloadable BookSmart software offers various backgrounds, borders, and colors; you can also import photos, text, and blogs. Recommended titles on sale for kids include Karen Nakashima’s Being Green?, Melissa K. Rath’s The Monkey and the Tree, and Cheryl Andrey’s Willard Explores the Ocean.

Make his book available in Blurb’s bookstore and family and friends can order it.

Telling tales was never this much fun.
