Students will quickly find that the interface is user friendly and simple to use. They can draw their own pictures or use images from their iPad photo albums, add text, record sound, and add multiple pages. They can even edit several classic books that come with the app. For teachers, there is a wonderful StoryKit tutorial from the Apple Distinguished Educator Institute at www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSWQkUS4kXk.
