TikaTok encourages children to use their imaginations to create and illustrate a story (scan and upload drawings or mail images), and then share with family and friends via online gallery or real bound book! Start with a blank page, or check out the StorySparks, where young authors can choose a theme or word to get some help telling their story. We were wowed by the quality of hardcover bound finished books, and think this is an exceptional gift to share with a grandparent or other special person in a child's life. Once published, your child's story can be made available to other young readers to order for themselves. Worried about privacy? Only the registered parent or guardian of a child author may order a book with the child's real name printed on the cover, and parents can choose whether a book (sans author full name) can be part of the online gallery.
