Happy New Year in February! Back online... finally : )

Hey Everyone!

I hope you have had a super great beginning of 2017! I'm posting for the first time this year, but I do have some good things in the works...

I'm taking a little business course right now so I am busy looking at how publishing houses work and asking some customers what they like about products and such. It's helping me narrow down what sets my little Enjoy Learning Something publishing business apart and how I can make it grow.

I have been planning out my goals and here are some...

  • Send out one of my manuscripts out to agents since it doesn't fit into my own publishing house's mission. I'd love to see how it is being tranditionally published too!
  • Work on setting up a Kickstarter campaign to come out in May for my second book to come out next year. This is a big goal and has lots of parts.
  • Work on getting my YouTube videos up and running--kids math product/book reviews and my Math activity Thursdays up and running. Along with this, set up a Patreon account. I did hire an awesome film editor in the Philippines and I'm excited to see what we can put out for all of you.
  • Learn more about how publishing houses work and implement what I learn.
Are you looking forward to seeing some fun math activity videos you can do with your kids? Or are you more interested in seeing what math products/books you can use with them? Both maybe?

I'll catch you later! Take care!

Where you can buy The Pancake Menu this holiday season...

Hey everyone!

I really do need to go out and promote my book, but as many of you know promotion can be difficult. Today I decided to brainstorm some ways to get my book out in front of the public eye... so I'm running a Pinterest ad for three weeks and started up my Google ad again too!

That made me curious though... How many places are there you can find the book? Many people ask me where they can buy the book. I would love if people buy directly from me at kidsmenubooks.com, but there are a few other places to get it.  So here is the list of places to get the book with links : )
 
Well, I hope you found that helpful and can manage to get a copy for you and your loved ones this holiday season! Also, don't forget to leave reviews after purchasing it--thanks!!!

I'm back and sharing a neat online math resource!

Hello everyone! I took a break for a while at the beginning of this school year. It's a busy one for me with four different schools to juggle and volunteering right and left. But I'm back for today to share a neat math resource with you!

This awesome new resource is a fun, playful collection of the best math-centric online content curated by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute. It’s More Math!, a fun way to explore the wonder and beauty of math with puzzles, games, books, videos, and other mathy treats. 

The current favorites are: Mathical for kids and families, Varsity Math for teens and adults, and Numberphile - for all ages!

FYI, MSRI is one of the world’s preeminent centers for collaborative research in mathematics. MSRI’s public programs – including its online destinations – are dedicated to showcasing the playfulness, beauty, power, and importance of mathematics in our everyday lives.



A link to More Math! is on the Watch & Play section of NationalMathFestival.org (which looks super interesting too!). Here is the twitter link: twitter.com/natmathfestival

I hope you have a great day and enjoy!

Yay! Another book award!!!

I'm so excited to share the news that The Pancake Menu has recently won another award! This time it's a bronze from Readers' Favorite in the Concept Book category!
It's an honor to get this award and I'd love to go to the award ceremony but it's all the way in Miami, FL and that's a pricey airline ticket for me. But I am so excited to have won bronze!

It's a pretty seal, but I don't think my front cover has room for more than one award seal.  

Which one do you think is better?  I'd love to know your opinion.  Thanks for stopping by today. Also, I feel I should somehow showcase that I've won the awards on kidsmenubooks.com but I haven't figured out how I should word it or put it on there.  Let me know if you have any ideas : ) Thanks!

In the top 100 math blogs!

Hello everyone!

I know it's been a while--busy and relaxing summer at the same time.

I'm happy to announce that my little blog here got picked as one of the top 100 math blogs! I was #90 : )

It was nice to see many of my blogger friends among the list as well! Congrats to all that made the list and I hope you enjoy the other blogs as much as you do mine too.

My toddler has been enjoying taking pictures with my phone a lot lately and he got this fun shot of one of his Magnaform creations.

I hope everyone has had a nice summer and is enjoying the beginning of the school year!
