To all the Little Reader fans out there, wouldn't you just love a well put together course on countries, with picture flash, encyclopedic knowledge, anthems and games, covering 40 of the world’s well loved countries?  A small group of us would love to finish this course that we have been working on, but we need your help to make it happen.

Outline of the Country Course:
Countries: Italy, France, Spain, Ukraine, Sweden, Denmark, Hungary, Germany, Greece, UK, Russia, China, India, Mongolia, Japan, Taiwan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Iran,  Armenia, South Africa, Madagascar, Morocco, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Libya, Canada, Greenland, USA, Mexico, Panama, Cuba, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Fiji, New Zealand.
Picture Flash:  Flags, Currencies, Country Map Outlines, Country Locations, Landmarks, Capitals and Biggest Cities.
Encyclopedic Knowledge: 20 Researched facts on each country, including history, famous persons, nature, architecture, etc.  Each fact is displayed with at least one quality image.  (That is 800 facts!)
Anthems: The national anthem of each of these 40 countries, played while displaying one of many of the images associated with that country.
Games:  Match the correct flag, country outline or other iconic image to the country in question or the anthem being played.
Review:  Revision cycles are built into this course, the viewer will see new content  3 days in a row, then again a week later, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 8 weeks and 16 weeks.  This course is designed to run over 160 days or about 32 weeks, but once you have the course, you can always tailor it to your specific needs.


Here is how you can be part of the team, gain access to all our content and to the Little Reader Country Course:

1.   Respond to this post saying you’re in.
2.   You will receive a Little Reader category file via email, it has a .cat extension.  Download the .cat file, open your Little Reader and double click on the .cat file to import it.
3.   The category will now be visible to you in Little Reader and will contain 20 facts without any pictures.  Double click on a fact to add pictures (at least one.)
4.   Search for images on the internet (http://www.sxc.hu/,  http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page,  http://images.google.com/hosted/life)
5.   Images should be at least 800x600 dpi and thought should be put into the discussion possibilities of the chosen images with small children and the given fact in mind.
6.   Some images might require some form of standard editing, combining images*, adding arrows or labels, etc.
7.   Export the category and send it back to us via email.  (You’ll find the export tool under Little Reader’s tools tab.)
8.   Depending on the number of people on our team, you might be required to help add images to about 4 country fact categories, that is roughly 8 to 12 hours of your time spread over 6 months.
9.   If you don’t manage to finish a category withing 1 month of receiving it without any explanation, we will assume that you have lost interest and you will only have access to a smaller portion of the content. (You gain 25% of the course content for every category you complete.)
10.   This project is scheduled to be finished by the end of November 2013 and only team members will have access to the content and the course.

*One way of merging two images is to use PowerPoint.  Open PowerPoint and insert the images.  Re-size and crop images as needed. Save as .jpg – a file format accepted by Little Reader.

This is what the fact categories look like:
Brazil     http://user.brillkids.com/download_library/download.php?cid=1&tid=&lid=&fid=9349
China     http://user.brillkids.com/download_library/download.php?cid=1&tid=&lid=&fid=9396
Russia   http://user.brillkids.com/download_library/download.php?cid=1&tid=&lid=&fid=9399
Ukraine  http://user.brillkids.com/download_library/download.php?cid=1&tid=&lid=&fid=9416
Canada  http://user.brillkids.com/download_library/download.php?cid=1&tid=&lid=&fid=9417
India      http://user.brillkids.com/download_library/download.php?cid=1&tid=&lid=&fid=9419

So in short, you get 800 Encyclopedic Facts to present to your child in a memory aiding, systematic way, for the price of searching for 80 images on the net.

Hi, I would love to join this lovely project too. I think it's such a great idea, and I was just thinking about something similar recently.

Is it possible to express some preferences over the countries to prepare for, or is it already all planned out ?

Oh, I love the idea:)
I am definitely in for such a great return.
I have a geography-adoring child and would love to go more in depth than what we have done.

Great idea!

Looks like we've got a very good team!  I'll be contacting everyone shortly with some more info.

@E8080, you are more than welcome to make suggestions, we value everyone's ideas.  We pretty much know what's going into the course, we've got lists of facts ready and a bit of a course outline, but nothing is set in stone.  I'm also currently working on a prototype course that everyone in our team will immediately have access to, just so you can get excited with us and so we can improve on our current ideas.  The files that you will be working on will be your's to do with as you please, add or remove facts and pictures etc. as long as there's 20 researched facts each with a quality image.
