FREE Downloads of My 2017 Primary Theme Series Books! Available NOW!

Every year for over 20 years, I’ve written books for the LDS Primary themes. There are a bunch of books every year, and I used to sell printed books to bookstores, but now I only sell them on Amazon in Kindle format, with free pdf and Word downloads for printing and/or editing, depending on the book. It’s almost the end of the year, so I’m putting the current 2017 ones up as free downloads. You may still be able to use them, and they serve as samples so you can see what the books are like in case you’re thinking of purchasing the new ones for 2018. Anyway, here they are – just follow the links to get your FREE downloads.

FREE Downloads: Two Books About the Presidents of the Church!

This week I have two FREE downloads for you! They are both about Presidents of the LDS/Mormon Church. They can be used in class, for sharing time, for singing time, for Family Home Evening, or for general use. One has games and activities that can be used to teach about each of the presidents, and the other one is a kit that can be used for all kinds of guessing and matching games. It has pictures, numbers (order of service), facts, names, and signatures for all the presidents, along with suggestions on how to use the kit.

BONUS! Three FREE Stories of Jesus Kits!

When you want to tell your child (or your class or the whole Primary) about Jesus Christ and some of the miraculous things He did, what better way than to use some of the stories contained in these 3 kits? Kit #1 has His baptism by John and the Temptation. Kit #2 contains the stories of Jesus calling His apostles. Kit #3 tells about the marriage at Cana and the woman at the well.

At my house, where I live with my daughter and her family, I prepare the figures by laminating them and putting hook velcro on the backs, and after telling my little grandsons the stories, I let them play with the figures and tell the stories back to me using my Storyboard. They learn and remember best through play, and they enjoy retelling the stories.
