StoryBrd is a nice website that allows kids and parents to create their own story books online. This service is free up to this moment and all it requires is a quick sign up. Besides enabling users to produce digital stories of their own, StoryBird features a section that is called art gallery where users can have access to a wide range of artworks to use and embed in their stories.
StoryBird also lets its users create their own community of readers by reading others' works and commenting on them. Additionally, the stories can be shared publicly so that everyone can see them or be shared privately with a restricted group of users.
Teachers can use this website to encourage their students to write their own stories and rate each others writings and probably give gifts to the best stories. StoryBird is a great site to nurturing creativy and imagination.
