Free Kindle Kid's Book: A Dragon Tale

File this under a homeschool item that took forever!  But hooray...it's accomplished and the kids are so proud of themselves.

Last year we had a fairy tale unit in school.  The kids wrote a fairy tale.  This year they finished illustrating it.  I helped them scan in their drawings and add the text in Photoshop.  We were going to upload the photo files to a photo printing place and have a book made.  But I got to adding up how many books we wanted and what that would cost.  A little too much.

Sooo....we went with Amazon Kindle.  Free to publish.  We can't offer the book free indefinitely, but that's okay.  We can offer it for free for a bit and that's when we would like family to download it (and others). 

My little fairy tale characters (aka...my kids) wrote a short fairy tale about some characters.  The story is about a prince and a princess that get turned into dragons after eating an apple from a wicked witch.  They have to save their kingdom from being turned into dragons.  Along the way there are references to other fairy tales. 

So, if you'd like to download a book written for kids by kids, it will be free from today through Saturday, February 28, 2015.  We'll have 2 days left to offer it for free another time.  We're not really expecting to make any money on it, but it's been a great learning experience for the kids.  There were some creative differences at times, especially over the cover design, but they worked through it.  Maybe someday they'll polish up something a little more and publish it and we'll have lessons on marketing!  This time, we're skipping the marketing.  This is it! 

We hope you enjoy the story as much as the kids enjoyed writing it.  They still laugh when they read it and that makes this mama happy.  You can click on the image of the book to find its place at Amazon.

Enjoy your weekend!
