Free books and movies

I wanted to share with you guys a new way to earn from home. It’s not money but you can get free movies and books for yourself and your kids. You can go here for more information. Thomas Nelson is a publisher of Christian books and movies. They will send you copies to preview. Then all you have to do is write a review and post it on a blog and one commercial site (i.e. Barnes and Noble). That's it!! Then it is yours to keep. Our first item was a movie. "Skeeter and the Mystery of the Lost Mosquito Treasure" I though it was fabulous. This is from the series Hermie and Friends. This was our first Hermie and friends movie and my two year old loved it. The message is great! It is that God has created us all differently and that's okay. We are all special and everyone has things about themselves that they don't like. It this day and age were everyone is so focused on image this is a message I really want my girls to learn early on. In the movie there are two brother mosquitoes and one of them has a crooked stinger. The other brother is a very famous explorer. Of course the first brother thinks he is inferior because of his crooked stinger but through the story you learn that they both have strengths and weaknesses but that by working together they can find the treasure. There are also some really cute extra features. In the movie they keep talking about Gooey Butter Cakes and at the end they tell you how to make them with your kids and give you the recipe. This might have been our first Hermie and Friends movie but I don't think it will be our last.
