“My Picture Dictionary” Fundraiser Update

Fifteen (15) Kindle readers downloaded MY PICTURE DICTIONARY today. Educators, Daycare, and Summer camp teachers are describing My Picture Dictionary as a unique and effective reference book for early learners.

I really like the dictionary concept, especially since it includes a wide range of topics and activities that apply to the alphabet and consequent vocabulary!
