Five years ago, God put on my heart the vision of a free online preschool curriculum which we named ABC Jesus Loves Me. To our surprise, God has expanding this vision to include four curriculum, workbooks, this blog, forum, ebook, and Facebook groups - and a full time job for me.
As the use of the curriculum increased, many asked us to provide the preschool curriculum in book form. When they saw the amount of time and the expense that it takes to print the 36 weeks of lesson plans and the 100+ worksheets, they desired the ease of purchasing it. So, we set to work making this desire a reality. We started with two and now offer nine spiral bound books.
After almost three years of offering these resources, we have come to a difficult decision. The rising printing and postage costs have forced us to reexamine our prices for the books and Licenses. Starting
UPDATE: Due to my son having surgery, these changes will begin to change over on January 28th. If you planned to wait until January 31st to take advantage of the lower price, please let me know and I will refund you the extra amount. I am sorry for the need to change my original plan.
UPDATE 2: My plans for shipping fell through as well. I found out that I can't do what I hoped to through the basic Paypal set up for shipping. I even called to make sure. After placing the book(s) in the cart, you now have the option to choose Media or Priority Mail shipping.
As the popularity of ABCJLM continues to increase, many have asked us why we continue to offer the curriculum for free? That's because we still believe in God's vision for the ABC Jesus Loves Me website - to provide all families with quality, Bible-based resources in which to prepare their child(ren) for Kindergarten. So the curriculum and worksheets will remain free for families and their children. The cost increase will only affect those who choose to order the books in print form and those using the curriculum in a non-family situation. (The price for renewing a License will not change.)
We are announcing this price increase now to give you time to order the books or a License at a lower price. You can do that by clicking here.
Please let me know any questions that you have about this change.
