Illustory has been given many rave reviews. Parents are using it to encourage their children's creativity. Children get to write their wonderful stories, add in illustration and then have it published in a real hardback book. It'll look like a book you buy at the store.


This is a perfect gift to give a child who loves to read, write and draw, especially 5-7 year olds who are just beginning to write. It is a way to make them proud of their work. It is also a way for you to show them that their writings are of value. Of course you can just staple some paper together to make your own book. However, Illustory helps you create a storybook that you can treasure and keep for years.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
  • 12 special book pages for your child to draw and write. Marker pens are provided.
  • Send your work over the manufacturer in a postage paid envelop where they will reproduce the writings and drawing into a book.
  • A few weeks later, you will receive a professionally bound hardcover book.
  • You even get an "About the author" page.
  • The size of the book is 7"x9.
  • The cover and title is laminated.
WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH IT?
  • Have your children write a story to record a special family occasion such as a family vacation or celebrations.
  • Dedicate the book to someone special like grandma or dad for Father's Day.
  • Have your kids write a book (or several books) every year. They will love to see how their writing changes from year to year.
  • Makes a great birthday or Christmas present.

THE GOOD SIDE

  • They've made the process of writing very simple. There are instructions to follow.
  • Also included are tips, activities, pre-planning diagrams are included to make writing easier.
  • The finished product is of exceptional quality.
THE BAD SIDE
  • You can only put 20 words per page and only 12 pages. May be quite limiting to some children who have a lot to say.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
Over at Amazon, this product rates 4 1/2 stars out of 5. Here are excerpts from their feedback.
  • "He is so excited and proud of himself when he shows his friends, family and teacher his publications!"
  • "The books are a great family keepsake"
  • "It challenged them to come up with their very own story, using thier imagination and when the books arrived, they were so proud!"
  • "This really helped my niece become more sure of herself and she now loves to write! "
