Mopey Birthday!

An illustration of a mammoth in a party hat.

It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year since the Mammoth is Mopey Indiegogo campaign reached its funding goal and we got our labor of love printed to share with the world.

To celebrate, we are going to give you gifts! During each of the next four weeks in May, we will be giving away cool prizes to our fans. Entering to win is simple. All you have to do is share your love for Mammoth is Mopey on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram using the hashtag #MopeyBirthday. At the end of each week, we will randomly select a winner from among these social media posts. You can send our friend Mammoth a birthday greeting, share a selfie with your copy of the book, help us spread the word to new readers, or anything else you can think of to celebrate. Just be sure to share it in a public post so we can find it!

We’re also discounting the hardcover and ebook versions of Mammoth is Mopey! Hardcovers are $12 and ebooks are $5 all month long!

So… what can you win? Here’s a breakdown of the weekly prizes.

May 1 through 7: Two one-inch button sets. May 8 through 14: A Mammoth is Mopey poster. May 15 through 21: A hardcover book. May 22 through 29: A frameable print of your choice.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last year, and good luck during this month’s contests!

Science A-Z at Wonderlab

Welcome to the new Mammoth is Mopey website! Our book, which was funded by over 300 generous backers at Indiegogo, is currently in production. We’re preparing to launch the book with an exhibition at Bloomington’s Wonderlab children’s museum on June 3.

Science A-Z will be on display from June 3, 2015 until January 23, 2016. From Wonderlab’s website:

Celebrate the connection between science and literacy! Whatever your age, this new exhibition takes you on an exciting treasure hunt throughout the museum to find a different science experience for each letter of the alphabet. The 26 interactive stations cover everything from biomechanics to magnetism to solar power – and more! This is a whimsical approach to learning about science and building vocabulary, especially scientific language. Watch for volunteers in the galleries who will engage you in fun “pocket science” activities as well.

Wonderlab is truly a wonderful resource for parents and caregivers in the Bloomington area, and consistently holds fun and enriching activities. Keep up with the events calendar and follow Wonderlab on Facebook.
