"We had a lot of fun doing this together. He really likes to share it with other people."Jennifer M., grandmother of 7-year-old
"I love the fact that he takes initiative in reading the book to himself, initiating spontaneous speech, and sitting down for extended periods of time to enjoy the book. He's a 'busy' kid, so these are all goals we work toward with him."Amy M., mother of 2½-year-old
"She read it to everyone in our family including our dogs, guinea pig, and hamster! She was very proud of it. I saw her with it at least one to two times a day."Dottie F., grandmother of 7-year-old
"I really liked working on this with David. He is very happy to have a book about himself, by himself. It was lots of fun and a lovely finished product."Debby A., mother of 6-year-old
Children can create a book about their trip to the zoo by describing many of the animals encountered therethe short, tall, big, small, noisy, quiet, friendly, and scary ones.
"A marvelous idea, executed in superb fashion by the multiple Seal winning publishers at Boys Town Press. This interactive series of books are a wonderful way to reinforce various special times throughout the year including celebrations, holidays and other events that form so much of the important memories of childhood. Colorful and cute illustrations fill each book while the print is large and clear. Being able to personalize the book, with drawings or writing makes the books a keepsake and a real source of pride."
