  • A bestselling family book (#1 Amazon New Release – Bestseller in Parenting and Child Development) is being offered free to help Parents and quarantined families with kids at home.
    “Brilliant Screen-Free Stuff to do With Kids: A Handy Reference for Parents and Grandparents” will be a FREE download from April 2nd to April 6th, 2020.
    We started writing this book months ago (before the Covid 19 issue ever arose) since we got tired of kids sitting around and vegetating on the couch with a laptop. We wrote it to give kids things to do indoors and outdoors for healthy things to do besides look at screens. We live in New Zealand and we are offering the book free Worldwide (4-2-20 to 4-6-20) to help families cope. We would sincerely appreciate your sharing this with your readers and anyone else in the world.
    After April 6th, the price will return to its purposely set low price of $2.99. Please let all know about this free download during these difficult times. We attached a PDF copy of the book for you. See the book’s details here > https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08685QQC8
