Martin Luther King Book for Kids Children
"I am Martin Luther King" by Brad Meltzer.

It might seem strange to imagine Martin Luther King, Jr. as a child, but just like you, he was once a kid too. Even then, he knew things weren't right. He dreamed of change. Learn how he made a difference with his rallys and marches when you read the latest book from the "I am" series. "I am Martin Luther King", by Brad Meltzer, tells the story of this great historical figure. It is told from the point of view of a child.

We love the "I am" books and use them in our history lessons for homeschoolers. You might like this lesson on Ameila Earhart.

5 Printable Duty Calendar Charts for Children

Chore Chart Duty Calendar for Kids

Chores! No one likes to do them- especially Moms. When can your kids begin to help around the house? What's the best chore by age? Is a toddler too young to have chore duties? Find out what we think, and then pick your favorite free printable duty calendar or chore chart from the list below. Enjoy!

Chore Chart Duty Calendar for Kids by Age
5 Printable Duty Calendar Charts for Children.

When our kids we're young they did everything early. Like, creepy early. With our first, we knew it was time to communicate with words, so we ordered one of those baby sign books.

The first time we practiced the sign for milk, his eyes squinted. He looked confused or astonished, so I kept making the sign and saying "milk". Suddenly, he shook his head, looked me straight in they eyes and said, "Milk"! I promptly closed my book, and that was that. He was 10 months old. At the age of 2, he taught himself to read, because he wanted to play a computer game that Daddy played.

Mommy had a demanding newborn to nurse. There wasn't time to sit at the computer and read every word to him. "Age of Mythology" had words running across the bottom, and the heroes said a few words here and there that corresponded with the text. So, be it.

His sister started walking at 7 months. She never crawled. Long story short, they were ready to do chores by 2 1/2 (or sooner).

We started with the dishwasher- they loaded the dishes (with my help). If you start early, it is fun for them. They don't see it as a chore, because they want to be 'BIG', and do whatever you do. If you start too late, it becomes something they never 'HAD' to do, and they see it as a 'CHORE'. So, pick your favorite list, and get started. Hope it isn't too late!

How to Get Pinterest Followers Fast for your Business or Personal Profile

How to Increase Pinterest Following

Are you looking to increase your Pinterest following? You know, for free, with no fake accounts, and no paying for "real" followers? This free printable PDF eBook shares how we increased our Pinterest following. Since the publication of this eBook, Pinterest has changed the way they do some things. So, let's be clear this is not a guarantee. However, the best way to increase your following on any social media platform is to use it diligently, daily, and truthfully.

What does that mean? Be yourself; don't look for shortcuts. It works, if you work it... just like anything else. Shortly after publication of this book, we stopped working it. In fact, now we only use Pinterest once or twice per week to share our most recent posts.

How to Get Pinterest Followers Fast for your Business or Personal Profile
How to increase your Pinterest following fast.

What happened? Our followers have stayed steady at around 186,500. We suffered some consequences for being an account with a large following. Many fake accounts followed us, as well as, those intending to use Pinterest actively. Every so often, Pinterest does a sweep and removes fake accounts and accounts that are not active. With each sweep, we suffer a great loss. Generally around 2500 followers. That's the bad news. The good news is the referral traffic to our website has not waned. Though, somewhat seasonal, Pinterest is always the number 1 referrer to this website. When we work it, the referral numbers dramatically increase.

We dare not say what those numbers are. We act as a social media managers and when others hear our numbers, they expect the same results. Perhaps, over time this would be possible. However, a new (er) Pinterest profile will not achieve the same results as this one. We have thousands of pins (maybe millions) out there in Pinterest land. They have a life of their own. We can help you get started. We can tell you how we did it. We can even get you set in the right direction.

Though a few things have changed, overall the information in this FREE eBook will work... if you work it. The main changes to note are highlighted below.


  • Use fewer hashtags. Pinterest prefers it if you only use your brand as a hashtag. For example, #kidscreativechaos. Since the pins are often shared across other social media, we still use hashtags with relevant keywords for the website, #freeonlinehomeschool.  So, it is up to you - choose what you think is best, but never use more than two.
  • Don't go crazy and pin the same pin to several boards at once. This is still true as printed in the book. However, Pinterest warns of repinning the same pin to many different boards. We suggest pinning to your main website board (you should have one front and center) and then a few days later, pick the most relevant board with a lot of followers to repin it.
  • In the book, we talk about following new accounts. In theory, this is a great idea that works. However, in practice this may come back to bite you in the hand. Be careful who you follow. Make sure they are legitimate, active accounts. The concept was to follow people with a  small following. Ideally, they will be more likely to notice you and follow back. Great concept. It only works if they are active users.
So, that's it! Are you ready to download your totally FREE PRINTABLE PDF of the best selling book, How to Get Pinterest Followers Fast? Go for it!
