Welcome back to our last installment of learning about Teachers Pay Teachers.
Just to recap, if you want to learn what Teachers Pay Teachers is, read this post. If you want to experiment with fonts and clip art for a TpT product, read here.
Now I'll give you links to watch videos on how to put together your cover and packet using Power Point. This is how I learned. My latest cover is on the left. I used a photo of our former pet, free clip art frames and fonts, and illustrations provided by my daughter.

If you've started a store on TpT, be sure to let me know in the comments so I can visit! Have fun being creative! And if you have any questions, ask away. I'm still learning, but I'll try my best to help you.
Hi Everyone! Happy February, the love month!
I'm participating in my writer friend's, Carrie Finison's Book Love Blog Hop. We want to share some love of books by leaving reviews on web sites or social media. Here's what Carrie has to say:
"It’s a tough world out there for books and their authors. They need our support now more than ever. So this month, we’re playing Cupid for a while and spreading some BOOK LOVE around by setting aside a few minutes to give more public support to some of the books we’ve enjoyed recently – and tagging some reader friends to do the same!
Do you want to play Cupid with me? Here’s how the hop works:
BOOK LOVE Blog Hop Instructions
1. Pick some books you love (any genre) that you think deserve more attention than they are getting. (As much as I love The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Eric Carle does not need my help to sell more copies! I’ve tried to choose books I thought needed a little boost, or ones I love that no one else seems to have heard of.)
2. Post reviews for the books you chose on Amazon/social media. The reviews can be brief – even a short review on Amazon helps. Posting on Goodreads or Shelfari is great, too, or Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. The more places you can publicly proclaim your love, the better!
3. If you want, you can also post the reviews on your own blog, or link your blog back to your reviews on social media.
4. Feel free to display the BOOK LOVE badge on your blog – and if you want, link it back to this post so your visitors know what it’s all about." It was created by Dana Carey, another writer friend.
Here are the books I'm leaving reviews for.
The Story Catcher by Donna Martin published by Anaiah Press, January 2015.
This is a debut book for my writer friend, Donna Martin!
A whimsical picture book, perfect for those who are interested in and for those just learning how to read. How can little ones catch the words and make them behave so they can read the story? Check my review on amazon.
The Tree Lady: The True Story of How One Tree-Loving Woman Changed a City Forever by H. Joseph Hopkins, published by Beach Lane Books, Sept. 2013
I love picture book biographies, and this one doesn't disappoint. Find out how one woman changed the landscape of San Diego by planting trees! Kate Sessions had many firsts in her life, an inspirational read, especially for girls.
Red Kite, Blue Kite by Ji-li Jiang, published by Disney-Hyperion, 2013
This is a touching story of a boy and his father who love to fly kites. But when his father is taken away to a labor camp during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, the kites become a way for them to communicate. A beautiful, lyrical read for picture book lovers!
