Automatoon- Easy Animation For The Web! Free Printable Children's Books. contributed by Leanne Guenther Make these free printable children's books to encourage your kids to read.

The "custom stories" and holidays themed stories are especially popular! The printable books come with suggestions for complimentary activities and/or worksheets to reinforce the stories.

Everest Posted by admin on Feb 10, 2011 in All Podcast Episodes, HD Episodes, Season 5, Everest 2010 Trek & Photography Workshop, Stereoscopic 3D Episodes | 0 comments A New Dimension In The Himalayas. Season 5 of The Rest of Everest begins this week with a special episode of the podcast. This is definitely a first because everything you’re about to see was filmed in 3D. I’m very proud to be able to offer this new kind of video and excited that this is the first 3D material to be filmed in Tibet. There’s palpable texture to the episode that is unlike anything I’ve ever released before. This episode provides a brief summary of our trek to Everest’s wild East Side (The Kangshung Face) but I have so much more footage of the experience. To get the most out of this 3D podcast you’ll need red and blue “anaglyph” glasses. If you’re not interested or 3D simply gives you a headache, jump to the middle of the episode where all of the video repeats in standard 2D just as normal. Enjoy! Jon Miller
