Free Ebooks for Kids and Directions

This post contains free ebooks for kids plus the directions to make your own REALLY EASY EBOOK! It’s easy to learn how to make an ebook.

This is a great example of an ebook that is centered on my granddog, Layla! First I had to upload the pictures and create a little story. Then I created my story around the pictures that I had. I worked on it on and off for a week or so.





Creating an ebook can be a great family activity to recreate a fun vacation or event together. There’s also a ton of other ebooks that you can create on fictional stories, family pets, etc. There’s a list below of just some of the ebooks you can create!

It’s also a great learning activity for a small child – as you are typing you can focus on the letters, letter sounds, sight words, vocabulary, etc. You can create a really easy ebook similar to the 2nd ebook on this post that has one short sentence on each slide, or an ebook with more than one sentence. It’s your creation!

Creating an ebook is a great project for all through the year! You can create it, and when it’s downloaded, it’s yours forever. You can also print it – you can even print it and use it in place of a card to celebrate birthdays, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Anniversaries, etc.




I’ve included step by step directions plus a Youtube link that explains the easy process.
