New Zap The Grandma Gap E-books & Activity Books

The following is from Janet Hovorka of Family ChartMasters and Zap the Grandma Gap.

E-Books Now Available
Now all of our Zap The Grandma Gap Books are available in e-book format!

For the first time ever, I am pleased to announce that all of my Zap the Grandma Gap books and workbooks are now available in e-book form! It was a bit of a curve ball for this traditional librarian to decide to go digital, but with great thanks to my team at Family ChartMasters, I am ready to offer you all portable versions of each of my books, including my three brand new workbooks.

With hundreds of live links to all of the best genealogy sites all over the web and instant delivery, these e-books are sure to be a hit with your family members.  We hope this new delivery system will make it even easier to share your family history with your family members.

And to celebrate this exciting milestone, I am offering an introductory sale on all of the e-books.  For complete details on this sale and for gifting options, please take a look at the full blog post on the Chart Chick.

Science has proven the importance (academically and emotionally) of children having a sound sense of self. These activity books are a great way to introduce your children or grandchildren to your family's personal heritage in a fun and interactive way. The added bonus is that they don't even know they are doing family history--they're just having fun. A fun, non-frustrating first experience is vital to helping your young ones discover the joy and satisfaction that comes from knowing and understanding where they came from. These books will make fabulous gifts for the children in your life.  Be sure to order some today!
