There are a few free tools to create an ebook, but the one I made was using Google Slides. Just as long as you have a Gmail account, you can access your Google Slides by finding those little dots (waffles).




There are tons of topics for creating your family ebook – you can create an ebook with a few pages or a ton of pages – it’s your creation.

Some Ideas for Thinking and Writing Topics

  • An ABC ebook on a specific topic, types of animals, favorite foods, etc.
  • Your favorite family recipes, memories, vacations, pictures, etc.
  • A topic you just learned about (an upcoming hurricane, a state, a song, etc.)
  • How to do something – how to make cupcakes, how to make candles, how to make soap, etc.
  • Give information on a topic you learned about (see my ebook of cats) science & math topics, etc.
  • Write about a special time, a special place, a special day, a special event, a special person, etc.
  • My dream house, my dream bedroom, my dream pizza, my dream party,  my dream wardrobe, etc.
  • Things/People/places you love, vacations, your pet, new clothes, aunts, uncles, etc.
  • A made-up fictional story that your child has written or created, a story that you created together, a spin-off of a published book that your child loves, a change to an ending of a book that your child loves, etc.

Once you get started you’ll realize that it’s easy to learn how to make an easy ebook! Making an easy ebook together can be a great family activity and it’s a great celebration for reading and writing! You may learn things about your child that you never knew and you’ll have the memory of your creation forever!

  1. Hey there,

    Thanks for sharing with us this super easy guide on how to create our own eBook quickly. I’ve always been a fan of Google Docs for its easy to use and online format but I didn’t know you could make an eBook with them! And it doesn’t take too long as well. 🙂 I’ll be sure to bookmark your site to come around later when I need to.

    Cheers,
    Anh
