Looking for inspiration? Check out these sample books we love:

Writing a class book is such a fun Thanksgiving project for students in grades K–8. Whether your students write about holiday traditions, gratitude, or turkeys, you can help turn your students into published authors in four easy steps:

  1. Order your publishing kit! Tell us when you’ll publish and select your kit. You’ll receive everything you need to help students create their published book.
  2. Get creative! Each student contributes his or her own writing and illustration to create a collaborative class book.
  3. Submit your kit! We’ll deliver your hardbound copy absolutely FREE, we even pay for shipping.
  4. Celebrate your published authors with a publishing party! Capture the excitement when your published book(s) arrives.
