The top five reasons teachers
tell us they love Storybird.

Inspirational

The gorgeous illustrations inspire students to write. The more they write, the more they read. It’s an addictive, virtuous cycle.

Simple

Making Storybirds is easy. Students focus on writing as a result, not clicking. Teachers, in turn, can focus on teaching.

Social

Students can share and comment on each other’s work, bolstering confidence and skill, within a private and safe environment.

Shareable

Stories can be embedded on blogs, shared via email, downloaded, printed, gifted—even turned into a class fundraiser.

It. Just. Works.

Storybird exudes care and craftsmanship, from the art to the interface. Everything works so that your work is everything.
