How is it FREE?

When we say there is NO COST TO YOUR SCHOOL, we really mean it. As a teacher, you can request a FREE Publishing Kit that includes everything you need to start publishing your classroom book. We even include a prepaid UPS shipping label for when you are ready to send us your order. You will also receive 1 FREE quality hardcover book for your classroom when you meet our publishing requirements. In exchange, we ask that parents have the chance to purchase copies of the classroom book. It's that simple.
