This review is from: Illustory Make-A-Book Kit (Hardcover)
Our son has written 2 books with Illustory already! He loves seeing the words that he writes typed onto the pages (by the company) and the drawings he does come out beautifully printed on the book. He is so excited and proud of himself when he shows his friends, family and teacher his publications! The book even comes with an About-the-Author page just like real published books! Everything that you need to write and draw is provided in the kit and the instructions are very easy to follow. In just a few weeks you get back a real hardcover book! The experience was so terrific, we plan on having him write a book each year so he can see how much his writing changes year after year. And just as soon as his new baby sister is old enough, we'll start her writing books with Illustory too. The books are a great family keepsake. We love them

This sounds great! Thank you for sharing your review & great idea. I was thinking of buying this for a nephew who is having a hard time with learning in school. I find it strange he's not doing so well since he very quick and witty when he speaks to us at home. I've noticed he's starting to with draw a little since getting a few D's in his reading class. I think something like this could be just what he needs to help his self-esteem and maybe to give him a little boost in learning too. I know it will be a great keepsake and his parents will love it that's for sure.
I can't wait to see what type of story he comes up with. I wish this would of been around when my kids were little, I would of had them write one for sure. The toys today are amazing they just get better and better. This one looks like a real winner!

Great idea having your son write a new book each year. Wow. I love that. My son is 5 so this is a perfect time to start. Thank you, I would have never thought of this. What a wonderful way to capture a child's journey!

What is the cost of printing a second book? Thinking of giving this to my grand-daughter, but don't want to saddle them with a costly "elephant"
