Storybird is completely free for educators to use with no limitations on the amount of students stories or artwork from our library. Students can share their stories freely with other students in the class, and teachers are able to share student stories digitally at their discretion.
Paid features are enhancements and are uncoupled from the core learning experience: Printing professional copies of student work is a paid option, as are printable PDF ebook Downloads and poetry Digital Downloads. Download Credits may be purchased in bulk for as low as .20 per download (1 credit = 1 download). Purchase orders are accepted by sending a note to support.
Additionally, Storybird can actually be revenue-positive. Educators may choose to run a literacy-first Storybird fundraiser. With Storybird Fundraisers, 30% of each purchase goes back to the classroom. Hardcover picture books start at $32.99, which means you and your students will receive about $10 back from every book sold. Softcovers start at $12.59. Shipping included in the USA.
Note: You may be looking for our discontinued Storybird Pro Teacher membership plans. All features in those plans are now completely free, with the exception of the Digital Download Credits noted above.
