All publications have now been combined into an iBook series: 'Weather...Or Not'. This includes some of the units from 'Keeping Culture in Mind' and 'Keeping Culture in Mind' and'Throw Away Your Dictionary!'

All of the materials in the books below are embedded into the third edition (series) of 'Weather...Or Not'. There are 12 books altogether with 2 for free: January Weather...Or Not & February Weather...Or Not.

Open iBooks on any iOS device (iPhone, ipad etc) and search for January Weather...Or Not.

Both 'Throw Away Your Dictionary!' and 'Keeping Culture in Mind' series can be downloaded from the Home page.

For Android devices, I'm afraid the format is nowhere near as nice or easy to use. However, I am going to continue to work on them once the last of the iBook Weather...Or Not series (September, October, November and December) are published later this year.
