Have you used FlipSnack? It’s a handy little tool that turns a PDF file into a digital flipbook.
It is completely free unless you want to use the premium version. But the free version was fine for me and probably for you, too.

FlipSnack is super simple.
The steps include:

  • create a free account
  • upload a Word or Goggle Doc document that has been converted to a PDF. If you don’t have access to Adobe Acrobat for  the PDF conversion, there are several other free applications on the web.
  • give your document a title
  • choose a template or style for the book
  • publish

That’s it basically.

A few instructional uses might be:

  • creating a storybook from material in the public domain, i.e., Project Gutenberg.
  • publishing a book of illustrated vocabulary.
  • creating a book report with student drawings or public domain pictures.
  • producing a series of book reviews based on a specific genre.
  • developing and publishing a research project.

This year is the 110th anniversary of the publication of The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter.
Since the story is now in the public domain, I found it on Project Gutenberg and created an online digital book.

The public link for this project is http://snack.to/fu84ts5n

Give it a try and share your book with me.
