E-books (sometimes called "digital" books) are books with the same content as a physical book but they can be downloaded to your computer immediately. When you buy an e-book and download it to your computer, you can simply print out the pages as you need them. Never worry again about last minute lesson plans!
Enhanced e-books have the same content as regular e-books with additional features and benefits that make e-books an interactive classroom experience.

To view e-books and sample pages on your computer (or to print them out) you will need Adobe Reader - a free piece of software you can download directly from Adobe's website. It is very important to make sure that you have the most recent version of Acrobat so please take the time to upgrade your copy - it's free!
Search our Web site to find the book you want to buy. On the product's description page, look for the "Add to Cart" button for the e-book version of the book. Clicking on the link will add the e-book to your shopping cart.
Once you have completed your purchase, your onscreen receipt will list all of the products in your order. To download your digital products, click on the "Download Item Now" link beside the item you wish to download. This link will appear next to all digital goods within your order for 14 days from the date of purchase.
Both the standard and enhanced versions of Teacher Created Resources e-books are in PDF format so they can be imported directly onto your interactive whiteboard. The additional tools available on the enhanced versions of our e-books make the most of your whiteboard capabilities.
The Sticky Note or Note tool allows you to add notes to any area of an ebook.
The Text Edits tool allows you to type comments or notes directly into the text of the ebook.
Insert Text: Place your cursor in the spot where you would like to add the text and begin typing. An insertion caret will appear in your ebook. To view your addition, click on the caret and your insertion will show up as a pop-up note.
Delete Text: To mark a spot where text should be deleted, highlight the text you'd like to delete, then press Backspace or Delete on your keyboard. The text you highlighted will be marked with a red strike-through line to indicate that it should be deleted.
Replace Text: Highlight the text you'd like to replace and begin typing. The text you highlighted will be marked with a red strike-through line and a caret where your new text will appear.
The Stamp tool allows you to mark a document with an Adobe Reader stamp (such as Draft, Completed, and Approved). You can also choose an image from your computer or create a custom stamp to add to your ebook.
The Highlight Text tool works just like a highlighter. Select the tool and drag it across the text you would like to highlight. Other Tools on this toolbar such as the Arrow Tool, the Callout Tool, and the Oval Tool can all be used to enhance your document.
