  1. Multi cultural book day great site check it out the site is a little difficult to use but worth the time and effort. Looking forward to receiving free book from the site.

  2. Picturepedia: An Encyclopedia on Every Page looks like a great read for kids and they do not have to read the words to understand.

  3. WOW! Two great products – a DK book with awesome illustrations and Purell … saving teachers and students from icky germs since 1997! Either of these fabulous items would be much appreciated. Thanks so much for all of the great resources and information you provide for educators!

  4. I love the DK books. The pictures in the books are so awesome to use in preschool lessons. We use lots of Purell in our preschool environment. We are are looking for fundraisers to use for one of our preschool students that has leukaemia. I will share the green fundraising idea. It is great that you give us all these neat resources.
    Thank you,
