Christmas is coming and it's time to start thinking about holiday gift-giving. What better gift to give a child than the gift of reading? One of our family's favourite gifts are books - my boys are voracious little readers and we love to encourage reading as much as we can.
A fun idea to make a gift of a book even more special is to personalize it. At I See Me you can create a unique, personalized children's book with your child as the hero or heroine in a story perfect just for them - pirates or princesses, dinosaurs or fairies, sports or animals or even holiday-themed. Can you imagine the look on your little soccer star's face when he sees his own name and image looking back at him from the pages of an all-star sports book or your little ballerina when she opens a colouring and activity book all about dance - featuring her?
At this time of year, when so many of us are trying to use the spirit of the holiday season to teach our children about giving and helping those less fortunate, donating to food and toy drives and volunteering our time, I can't think of a better book to give as a gift than one with a message of spreading kindness and doing nice things for others. Inspired by Mahatma Ghandi's inspriational missive, "Be the change you wish to see in the world," Jennifer Dewing and Marie Cardouat's I Can Change The World delivers that message of kindness in a fun, cheerful, child-friendly way. What a perfect time of year to teach children that no matter how small you are, doing good things can change the world for the better.
This Christmas give your children the gift of reading with a personalized book about caring and giving and watch their faces light up when they realize they are the star of this very special story.
