Book Creator Resources for the Classroom

One of my absolute favorite apps for the classroom is Book Creator. This is such a versatile app that can be used across a variety of grade, subject and topic areas, making it definitely worth the $4.99 price (available at half price if using Volume Purchasing Program).
