After browsing the Web 2.0 Awards list, I decided to take a closer look at Lulu, a self-publishing website. This site is great for anyone who wishes to publish their works for a low cost. You can upload a book that you've created, and as people buy it, copies are printed one at a time. This way, you don't have to win a contest or peddle your book to countless agents to live your dream! After seeing the book entitled Kindergarten We're Just Beginning , the classroom/library applications became crystal clear. Why not have students truly publish their own books? As long as you elicit the appropriate parental consent, the students can publish their works on a platform in which family members can buy the book as many times as they want. You know what that means - no more photocopies, lamination, or binding!
