StoryJumper is a site that gives parents, kids, and authors a fun set of intuitive tools for writing and illustrating kids stories. Our goal is to inspire anyone that’s ever wanted to write a kids story to get started!
How does it work?
It’s easy — just click on the “create” button and choose the type of story you want to make. From there, you’ll be taken into our StoryCreator tool and on your way. Click away — there’s nothing you can break here! You can also watch a short video that demonstrates how the tools work, here. If you’d rather find stories to read, just click the “Explore” button at the top of the page and browse stories selected by our editorial staff.
How much does it cost?
Our StoryCreator is free to use, and gives everyone access to our basic art libraries for story creation, online sharing, and book publishing. You can order your books as professionally published hardbound volumes starting from $24.95.
Can I use my own photos?
Yes, you can upload photos to use as background “scenes” or use our cropping tool to make fun face graphics that can be mixed with our character art.
StoryJumper is a great way for teachers to jump start Creative Writing lesson plans:
- Promote writing & literacy
We realize how intimidating a blank canvas can be. To that end, we’ve created several story templates that give students suggestions and ideas to get their mental gears turning. Just click on the “Create” button and you’ll see what we mean.
- Rich, colorful art library
Our art library is stocked with thousands of full-color props and scenes, including everything from simple shapes to complex mythological animals and characters. Kids can mix and match scenes, and share with stories with one another via email or on the website.
- Flexible platform
Your students can also draw their own pictures by hand, and then scan and upload them to their own story. You can also compile the pictures yourself for a class compilation. The completed stories can be shared for free online, or ordered as books (coming soon!). What better way to remember a class outing or field trip? You can also create a Treasure Map, re-tell an old classic, teach kids about the environment,.. the possibilities are endless.
- It’s free
Our basic platform is free for educators to use. No trial, limited versions or licensing… Nada. Enjoy!
