One thing all of my children have in common is their love for books. Alex and I are both big readers, although I don’t have as much time to read as I would like, and Zack and Libby have both fallen in love with reading too. Now that Alexander is reading books on a regular basis for school, he has fallen in love with books and Ellie and Joey both love to flip through them. Ellie loves to look at the pictures in books and tell her own stories right now but she gets really excited when someone curls up with her and reads her a new book.
Thanks to our friends at Hallmark and their line of personalized books, Ellie is enjoying a new book as an early birthday gift.
Using the Hallmark Customization Studio, we were able to create this book for Ellie, online and make it all about her. Of course, when we gave it to her, she immediately recognized her name and wanted to read it right away.
Ellie crawled right up in her daddy’s lap with her new book in hand and together they snuggled and read all about Ellie and her tree house, her pirate ship, and the many adventures she likes to create.
Once story time was over, Ellie sat down on the couch and created her own story about how she was a pirate who had a secret hide out in a tree house and a race car to drive around.
This is why I encourage my kids to read, explore books and use their imagination. Reading is important and when you add a personal touch to a book, kids are instantly intwined in the story.
Thank you Hallmark for inspiring creativity in my child with this great storybook.
