    I just wanted to mention something about the Zoobooks. My SIL recently gifted some of these to my children that she had picked up at a thrift store. It was a complete set about prehistoric creatures. The books covered a lot about the evolution theory as well as the big bang theory in quite a bit of detail.

    Keep this mind mamas!

    Most of the totsy book bundles are sold out. 🙁

    I tried to download the Nativity Pack from 3 Dinosaurs — but had lots of trouble! 🙁

    To even get to the pack of printables, I was first having to download a couple of programs, including a pdf program (in spite of the fact that I already have another pdf program). In the end, I had to delete the specific “Nuance” pdf program that was mandatory because my anti-virus (a simple, free version) captured and quarantined the file. The pdf progam also tried to change my homepage, and another program tried to add on a coupon option. All this leaves me with a negative impression…

    This isn’t the first time I’ve had this kind of trouble when I’ve tried to download printables linked here on MSM. Would it be too much trouble to prescreen these? Thanks for considering… 😉

    • Deborah says:

      I didn’t have any trouble at all downloading the Christmas Around the World packet; it’s a simple, straightforward download. 😉

      • Deborah says:

        Okay. I finally was able to download the pack. I originally had trouble because I clicked on an ad; I didn’t realize I had to scroll way down to find the links for the direct downloads…

        Thanks for sharing! 🙂
