Discounts

Here are some links to help you save money. Prices and sales vary quite a bit over time, so make sure you check your prices carefully before buying, to make sure you are getting a good deal.

  • Chapters Indigo Books
    When you shop for books online at www.chapters.indigo.ca you save 34% on most books over $25, and get free shipping on orders over $25.

  • Timez Attack - Multiplication Computer Game



    This is a great computer program for teaching the multiplication tables, especially for boys (although lots of girls enjoy it, too). They have to explore a dungeon like environment (that is designed not to be too scary), and they learn and practice multiplication as they go.

    They also have a "Video Tour" for parents, that shows what the program is like, and explains their educational philosophy. The Video Tour is available from the menu bar at the top of their home page.

    And the best part is that the "Base" version is free. The Base version is very powerful and very educational on it's own. Later on, you can buy some extra levels to give your child more practice, if you want to, but they will definitely learn lots from the Base version.
    Check it out at: Big Brainz.

  • Great Animation Program: Anime Studio
    Anime Studio is a great 2D animation program. It is used to produce cartoons for TV. We bought the Pro version, but the Standard version is amazing, too. You can download 30 day demos of both versions, and test them first, too.

    Anime Studio

    Anime Studio is very powerful with lots of features, so make sure you go through the tutorials, that are in the instruction manual pdf. These will get you up and running, "reasonably" quickly, and they will get you having some amazing fun, right away!

    This is an amazing program!
