Scribble Press

This post originally appeared on the blog of Hanna Bogen, Hanna B, gradstudentSLP. Thanks to Hanna for letting us re-post and please check out her blog.

Now that finals are over and I’m well on my way out of rainy dodge to a week of sunshine in AZ, it’s time for another app review. This time I’m talking story creation with Scribble Press. This app is fantastic for letting kids create their own books (which can even be ordered and mailed to you if you’re feeling sentimental). What I love about Scribble Press is the ability to start with the “skeleton” of a book and fill in the details so kids can make it their own.

When you click on the “New Book” link, it brings you to a shelf full of book categories. Does your client love aliens? CHECK! Is it Christmas/Hanukkah time and you want to do a holiday themed book? CHECK! Check out the various book categories below!


Within each category is a list of actual book “skeletons” to choose from. The image below shows the book options available in the “About Me” category.


Once you’ve decided on a book, a madlibs-esque screen will pop up with a story skeleton and blank spaces for you to fill in with your client. This is a great opportunity for them to practice spelling/typing skills if appropriate. For those kiddos who hate to generate their own sentences or stories, this is great because it gives them a place to start from which to come up with ideas. You can always go back later and edit the skeleton to be more relevant to your client (or just create a book from scratch with no skeleton).



Once everything is filled in, it’s time to illustrate the book! The app has a decent selection of images to choose from, but the real gem is the ability to choose from a PLETHORA of colors and a PLETHORA of “marker types” to draw your own pictures. I love the creativity this encourages in kids. You can always alter your books to target particular artic sounds, semantic categories, or language elements.





You’re enticed, aren’t you? So…the big question: how much is this app? FREE!! That’s right folks, Scribble Press is absolutely free. Depending on the level of support you want to offer, this app is great for kids of all ages (or maybe even some of the adult clients out there) and opens the therapy floodgates for a multitude of great intervention targets and ideas!
