The day has come, and our If You Learned Here eBook is ready! We should all be proud of what we have created together. It is something you will want to read multiple times to notice all the details, and share with friends and family.
From your iPad*, please click here to download your copy. Be patient -- the file may take some time to download. Remember to “open in” iBooks (with the arrow in the upper right corner) so you can enjoy the finished publication. If you “open in” Book Creator by mistake, you will get an editable version, in which elements may move as you swipe from page to page.
* If you aren't using an iPad, you can also read the book using the Readium extension for Chrome or Calibre for your computer. You can also get the iBooks app for your iPhone or iPod touch! If you have trouble with the ePub format, you can download the PDF instead.

As you read and share, please sign our Readers’ Guestbook, which is the final Padlet for this project. We look forward to seeing pictures of people all over the world reading our book! If you have friends in other schools who did not participate in our project, they can join the fun by reading our book and contributing a photo and comment to the Padlet.
We also encourage you to revisit our mentor text, If You Lived Here, and notice commonalities between the two books.

Keep Up the Great Work!
It is so exciting to see the book pages come in! Your students’ work is beautiful and inspiring. The finished publication will be something we will all enjoy and be proud of.
To recognize your students’ efforts and contributions, we have decided that our global book absolutely must have an “About the Author” section. We will include one group picture from each school, featuring students who participated in If You Learned Here. Please email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and include this information:
We know many of you have had school breaks recently, and each of us has enjoyed a week of spring vacation as well. Many of you have asked for a bit more time to complete your eBook pages. No problem! We have extended the deadline for eBook submissions to Friday, April 24. Please send us your eBook pages and your group photo by then. This means we’ll publish and celebrate during the week of April 27. Stay tuned for details!
Thank you so much for all your commitment, creativity, and collaboration over these last several weeks. The pages we’ve received so far have exceeded our hopes. See the screen shots below for a sneak preview! We're sharing just a few for now... just wait until you see them all together.
