Let’s Explore Backyard Birds eBook

Backyard Birds eBook

I just LOVE this eBook!  I had so much fun putting it together and seeing the beautiful birds featured in the Calendar Connections cards so much bigger! The facts were written by my friend Shannon and the eBook put together by me. I truly hope many of your bird lovers enjoy this!

Here’s a peek at a few of the pages in the eBook…

This eBook was a FREEBIE in our MadMimi emails in May 2015!  If you don’t want to miss out on future freebies, be sure to read below and subscribe!

Note – Please see below to be sure you are subscribed to the correct email feed to get your freebie {this freebie is NOT in our Feedburner email feed and below you will learn why}.  I have a visual walk through for you below!  All new freebies will be located in the MadMimi email feed so be sure you read below!

A Special Note About My Email Feed…

We have been having trouble with my Feedburner email feed {which thousands of you use} and many of you have kindly emailed me to share that you can’t see the images in the email. I am slowly trying to encourage everyone to unsubscribe from the Feedburner email feed and subscribe to the feed through MadMimi {which is where new freebies will be located as we move forward}. 

I am going to help walk you through this, and I am sorry for the inconvenience.  Feedburner is a free email service and MadMimi is one I pay for so you get nicer emails with that one! I can’t seem to figure out the problem with the Feedburner images not showing, thus the need for change!

Here’s the Details…

If you get emails from me with individual blog posts, they either look like the one on the left or the right.  If they look like the one on the right, you are fine and don’t need to change anything. That’s the MadMimi feed.  The one on the left is the one causing images to not appear and is through Feedburner.

Feedburner Email FeedMadMimi Email Feed


If your emails from me look like the one on the above left, here’s how to unsubscribe and change to the one that works!  At the bottom of your recent email from me, click “unsubscribe now.” This is a screenshot of the bottom of my Feeburner email feed to show where the unsubscribe is.

Unsubscribe from Feedburner Feed

Subscribe to our MadMimi Email Feed…

Then go here and subscribe to my MadMimi Email feed, with this one you can choose to have posts delivered individually or a once a week wrap up.

If you choose the weekly wrap up the link to your freebie will be in this weekend’s post, as the weekly post comes every weekend {no later than Sunday afternoon}.

Let’s Explore The Arctic & Antarctica eBook

Let's Explore The Arctic and Antarctica eBook

Our Let’s Explore ebooks take the awesome Calendar Connections themes that Shannon has developed, and turns them into full size files to be used as eBooks. You can read them on your computer, your iPad, or any device that supports PDF files. Yes, you can even print them full size! Remember, I have a tutorial for using these on your iPad here {the format is the same as the Easy Readers}. We both have iPads so that what we will be using them on. Each eBook page has a number, which correlates with the order in the Arctic & Antarctica Calendar Connections cards.

Arctic and Antarctica Calendar Connections

BUT, you don’t have to use this eBook with the CC cards, it can stand alone as a simple way to learn about a particular topic. The series is created with 3rd-6th graders in mind, but it isn’t limited to those grades. It is a great way to explore a topic across grade levels within your homeschool!

For this topic, I added in a few extra photos to some of the pages, here’s a peek…
