Why Use This Tool

The Book Cover Creator allows users to type and illustrate front and back covers, and full dust jackets. Children can use the tool to create new covers for books that they read as well as to create covers for books they write on their own or with family and friends.

Here's What To Do

A variety of templates allow users to create just a book's front cover, front and back cover, or a full dust jacket. There are text tools to add formatting to titles and book notes, the ability to add shading to background areas of the cover, or draw original images to illustrate covers and dust jackets. Since this is an online tool, there are also Book Cover Planning Sheets, printable PDFs that children can use to draft and revise their work before creating and printing their final book covers or dust jackets. The sample book cover shows a simple front and back cover.
