|Note:||Kit is only useable in the U.S. Printed books will only be shipped to U.S. addresses.|
Create your own long lasting, professional looking book! The IlluStory kit contains non-toxic, washable markers, writing pages, instructions, hints, a story planner, and a postage paid envelope. Write your story, then illustrate it. When you're finished, mail it in (at no additional charge) for completion and production. They'll bind your book, returning a 7" x 9" hardcover book that even has a place for a dedication. The kit produces an 18 page book, and the author's bio can be placed on the back cover.
Planning sheets, informational sheets on types of writing and quite a few "story web" graphic organizers flesh out the contents of IlluStory and may be helpful to tie the project in with your current writing curriculum. Next step, the Library of Congress! - Megan

If you’re a fan of the Illustory kits, stay tuned for news about our next Summer Book Contest! Each year we provide a theme, rules and an extra discount on an Illustory kit and your young author can submit their story for a chance to win great prizes, including having their book sold at Rainbow!
These materials cover various types of creative writing, including descriptive writing, poetry, journaling, and stories.
They provide pages where your child can write and illustrate their own story. (We always copied more, and kept a few master copies aside) Then you send the pages in and they will making it into a book, a true book. I’ve done it with 4 of my children. It’s worth it, but mine lost interest after a few pages, and when proofreading and correcting errors they did get frustrated. (We did a rough draft and made sure we copied enough pages for a final copy) It was worth it in the end and they all love their books. Definitely something I would do if you have a child who loves to draw or write, and for any student I think would be a great “project”.
