How to Make a Children’s Kindle Picture Book Using Public Domain Images.



How to Make a Children’s Kindle Picture book Using Public Domain Images and FREE! Software.

Have you ever wanted to create your own children’s picture book but did not know how or where to start?
You have a wonderful idea for a children’s picture book but you are not an artist and you do not have the funds to pay for an illustrator, nor the time to wait for the artist to draw all those illustrations for your 32-page children’s picture book?
What if I told you that you could create your own children’s picture book and it will not cost you anything but your time to put it together.
In this video, I walk you through step by step from where to find public domain images you can use for free, to customizing those images using a program called paint.net. I then show you how to upload those images into a word.doc template, and then convert your book to a .pdf format and then finally converting your book to a .mobi file to upload to Amazon Kindle. Would that be awesome or what?
Well, all of that is in my video. I walk you through every step from where to find the images to get your book published and available for sale on Amazon Kindle.

0:40 = Where to access public domain content.
2:23 = How to use paint.net for customizing images.
27:24 = Creating your .word.doc Kindle template.
40:30 = Uploading your book to Kindle Book Creator.

The Truth: Public School Vs. Homeschool



Hey guys! It has been a while since I have done a skit like this, so I thought I might as well get back into it 🙂
I was actually homeschooled from 2nd to 8th grade and then went to a public high school. In my experience, the two kind of balance out as far as benefits and disadvantages. I am glad that I was able to experience both. So, this is just a little skit that plays on some of the many differences. Of course they are kind of exaggerated….for instance, your social life is not limited to animals when you are homeschooled unless you let it like that haha. But I thought it would be a funny contrast.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed this. Thank you for watching and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE for more videos!

DISCLAIMER:
Soo, a lot of you have been saying that these are all stereotypes and not true. Well, there is a reason those things become “stereotypical,” because they are true to SOME extent. This is a comedic skit, so of course it is exaggerated! When I was homeschooled, I usually woke up around 8am. I mean, why not? I liked to stay up late and sleep in and as long as I got my school work done by 2:00pm, it didnt really matter. It didn’t make me a lazy person or cause me to have disciplinary issues when I did go to public school for high school. Most days I did actually get dressed for the day…..but of course there were some days that I stayed in PJs. Who wouldnt?! AND unless you are socializing with your family or other homeschoolers, you don’t socialize […]
