Kids can write an autobiography, describe a fun family vacation, write about their pet or interests, or tell a story. With this multi – award winning kit, you simply have your child write and illustrate their story using the supplied materials, which are then mailed in a prepaid envelope for publication. Your child can either: hand write the book on the provided pages, or submit it page by page online.
