Motherhood and parenting ebook bundle

Have you taken a peek at the new Bundle of the Week site?  It is a great place to pick up ebooks for a low price.  Every week features a new bundle of five ebooks with a common theme.  You can pick up all of them, in a bundle, for $7.40.  A good deal, right?

This week”s bundle is devoted to motherhood and parenting.  Included are some of my very favorites, including two books by Simple Homeschool editor Jamie Martin and one by Simple Kids contributor Amanda Morgan of the popular preschool parenting blog Not Just Cute.

Can I ask a favor of you?

Hello Simple Kids readers!  Thanks for making us a part of your day.  I’m wondering if I could trouble you for a favor?

The Simple Living Media blogs are conducting a reader survey.  We want to know what YOU think of the work we do here.

If you would, when you have a few moments (it won’t take too long) could you head over to Simple Mom to find the survey and share with us what you think about the Simple Living Media blogs?

Your feedback is valuable to us and all of your answers are totally anonymous.  We just want to get a feel, as we head into the new year, of what is working for you and what isn’t.

Thank you!
