*Actually, this isn’t true.
**Neither is this.
***Okay, this one’s true.

But, saddly, I don’t think I can use that. I saw that [...]

As any authors who would like to make there work available for free for non-profits, (and I know a [...]

Fun Children’s Games for Learning Letters and Numbers

Here’s a couple of new educational sites I’ve found lately:
The first at http://pbskids.org/wordworld/index_flash.html
Frog’s Rhyming Machine: http://pbskids.org/wordworld/characters/game_frm.html This game is great for reinforcing letter sounds, and it’s fun. The frog generates a word, and three words from which a match must be picked. Clicking on the right word the frog grabs it with his tongue, [...]

Dr Seuss: Mr Brown Can Moo! Can You?

This has become one of my favourite Dr Seuss books, since it’s helped me a great deal with speech therapy. On the surface it might seem a silly book with fun sounds, but look further, I believe it has many hidden qualities.
For children learning to read, the phonetic sounds, large words, and repetition are wonderful.
For [...]

Kids Activities with Printable Books

By accident this week, I’ve discovered two great activities for kids, based on our printable books.
Fridge Magnets
This is so easy, and so much fun, and personally I love fridge magnets. They’re like a game, a learning tool, a pin board all in one.
Print the characters from your favourite book, if it is a colouring version, [...]

Free on Kindle

A lot of authors say they have trouble finding the option, but apparently Kindle does let you post your books free, permanently.
While looking at some of the links to books on our site, Amazon suggested the following free Kindle books to me.

Green Eggs and Ham : Books Read on YouTube

Here’s an old favourite, with great rhyme and repetition, and a message for children that never looses it’s usefulness.

This version has the book displayed directly with the words for each page, and some fun voices.

Authors, please contact me if you’re interested in writing a piece about yourself and your books, or if you can forward me a link to some information [...]

Family Photo Books

I’ve just discovered another activity which is great for kids and parents, and really easy to do.
After arriving back from holiday, Opa, who joined us, sent me some great books about the kids adventures, combining some of the pictures he’d taken with creative text.
It was so great for me to have both a family memory, [...]
