Hibernation E-book Opportunity

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!!

Okay, just one announcement, but I am very, very excited about it!  We've been talking about hibernation, and doing different hibernation activities, for several months now.  It's been a subject that keeps drawing us back to it because it is so engaging.  SO, I decided to create an e-book with dozens of hibernation activities!  Most of the activities include printables, but many are also experiential and fine arts projects.  The activities also meet Common Core and Texas State Kindergarten standards!

Each activity has an introduction page that includes instructions for the activity and biology about different animals.  For example,

Do you know...

What animal's heart freezes when it hibernates?
What animal's entire body turns to ice during hibernation?
What air-breathing animals hibernate under water?

Before I release the hibernation e-book, I would love to have some of you look over the pages, try out some of the activities, and give me some feedback.  Do the instructions make sense?  Are there any typos?  Are there other errors I missed because I've been looking at it for so long?   The activities are targeted for a 5-year old (kindergarten) audience, but can easily be adapted for 4-6 year old children. 

If you would like to help me review the hibernation e-book, please fill out the form below.  You will receive a portion of the book (for free!) to review and I will include your name or blog on an acknowledgements page at the end of the e-book.  If you have trouble with the form, please send me an email so I can fix it!!

Also, I am looking for 5-10 bloggers to host a stop on my blog tour at the end of January/beginning of February.  As a host, you would post an interview, guest post, or other related post to help spread the word about this hibernation e-book, and promote that post on your regular social media sites.  I will have freebies and giveaways available for your readers during and at the end of the tour.  Host bloggers will also receive a free copy of the completed e-book and inclusion on the acknowledgements page at the end of the hibernation e-book.  

I'm so excited, I can hardly wait!  I'd love to have you join the adventure this month/next month!!  Just fill out the form and let me know what you'd like to do.  If you have any trouble with the form, send me an email (preschoolpackets at gmail dot com) so I can fix it!

Thanks so much!!

Update:  Dear friends,  Thank you so much for your fast response--I had nearly all the positions I needed filled within two days!  I am closing the form at this time.  If you are interested in hosting a stop for the blog tour, please email me--I have filled the spots I was hoping for, but I can still add a few more blogs.  Thank you again!!!

I may share at any of these parties!
