If you a have a children's book with a related activity kit or teacher's guide, please send me a link, so I can post it on Pinterest. I just created a Pinterest board that will hopefully be helpful to teachers, librarians, and parents wanting to discover books with supplementary activities.

The board can be seen even if you aren't on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/writerdeeleone/book-activity-kitsteachers-guides/

I'm brand new to Pinterest and would love to connect with other SCBWI members or writers on there. The best way is to follow me, so I can find you easily. Next time I log in, I'll follow you back.

Happy writing!  :flowers2

What a cool idea, Dee!  :goldstar
I have a Pinterest account, used it for a while, then deleted everything, but I hope to get back into it someday.

I'm a preschool teacher and obsessed with pinterest. In fact, I have sworn it off this summer, as I could, and do spend hours scrolling through.
This is a great idea and I love! Using books in my classroom for a global theme to the work we are doing.
 Since I work for low income families, language and literature are area's that do not get addressed in the home enough, so bringing loved and beloved books into my classroom has become a passion.
Thanks for doing this! Here's my link:

Great idea, Dee!

My picture book, The Twelve Days of Christmas in Kentucky, has an activity kit, but it's a state specific book, so you might not want to include it. Here's the link to the activity kit--

I haven't yet joined Pinterest, but I keep hearing wonderful things about it.

I love Pinterest, although Twitter has gotten my love, lately!  I followed you.  Since I 'm learning about the educational market and worked as a teacher and counselor, I  pin about related topics.  You might check some of my pins.

 Also, I'm in communication with a publisher to see if I publish one of my novels and they would include a guide for teachers, so I think your pins could be very useful. Thanks.   

Be motivated!

The only thing that has gained my (p)interest on there is chocolate because I never even thought that writers would use it.
I might just go there and take a look.
Thanks.

Hi Evelyn,
I added your book to my Pinterest Board. You can see it at https://www.pinterest.com/writerdeeleone/book-activity-kitsteachers-guides/ . I can't resize it or anything. There's also your description on there when you click on the image as well as a few more lines. Thanks for sharing! Looks like fun!  :fireworks

Hi Dee!

I didn't realize you were a Blueboarder. Nice to see you here, too. And thanks for including PRUDENCE in your page. I have a pinterest account but have never done anything with it.

Thanks again!

Jody

Dee, would you mind replacing the guide listed with this one, where my name is spelled correctly?  :P
