Enter to win a Hardcover Personalized Children’s Book *Winner Announced*

Personalized Children’s Book

personalized children's books Enter to win a personalized children’s book of your choice from MyFairyTale books.  Every hardbound book is professionally printed with bright, true colors.  A couple of months ago, we welcomed a new boy into our extended family and I wanted a unique gift that was unlikely to be duplicated.  I remembered how much I loved books as a child and believe every child learn to love reading at an early age.  I read to my children as babies and want to instill that love of reading in my new nephew as well.

So, I got him a personalized children’s book from MyFairyTale Books.  It just seemed like the most appropriate personalized children’s gift around.

Selecting the book was the hardest part of ordering.  They have so many books to choose from including books with recognizable characters like Scooby Doo and Sesame Street.  MyFairyTaleBooks also offers personalized children’s books for special events like visiting a fire station, potty training or a first day of school.  They have books for babies learning to potty train all the way up to early readers.

I think the “new baby” books would make a great gift to explain the wondrous excitement surrounding a new baby to a young sibling.  A young child learning to read would find delight in seeing their name on every page of an alphabet book.  Imagine the excitement a birthday child would get from having a book made just for their special day?  They also have holiday and religious books.  Some books that appeal to girls and some aimed at boys.

Enter to win a Personalized Children's bookI chose “The Train With No Name” by J.W. Dixon for my nephew.  I love the message that even a small person can make a big difference in the world.  I’ve seen too many kids grow up feeling powerless.  In this book, my nephew, his aunts and uncle visit a train station in his own hometown.  He becomes the engineer of a small, unimportant engine and saves a track tester from danger.  In the process, the train earns a name.

It’s a cute book with an important message delivered in a non-preachy style.  Taydon’s name appears on every page of the book.

It’s a hardbound book with simple, bright images relate-able to young children.  The fun images are not over-complicated nor distracting from the story. Of course, kids being kids, the cover is bound to get stuff spilled on it.  Not to worry, it’s a washable cover.  Just take a sponge to it and wipe up the mess.  It’s a good quality book that will hopefully become a cherished keepsake helping Taydon to remember an imaginary adventure where he was smart enough to save the day and make a difference.

Stories are like children. They grow in their own way. Grow in Wisdom and in Stature.

Each book has an inscription page so that you can create a special message for the intended recipient.  Mine says:

This book was created especially for Taydon

Grow in Wisdom and in Stature.
With love and brightest hopes for your future,
Aunt Sissy

I quoted one of my favorite children’s authors, Madeleine L’Engle.  The second line quotes the Bible – and is my hope for all children that they grow in wisdom and stature.  I don’t want them to just grow up and be physically strong, but also of good character and able to make good decisions, which is what it takes to make a positive difference in the world.

Be sure to visit MyFairyTaleBooks to see all the personalized children’s books they offer.  They also offer other great personalized gift ideas like DVD’s, music CD’s, Puzzles and gift sets.  Be sure to like them on Facebook, Follow on twitter, Circle them on Google+, and follow on Pinterest.

I enjoyed this personalized children’s book so much that I decided to give one away here.  You will be able to choose any book on MyFairyTaleBooks website and have it completely personalized.  This would make a great gift idea for a special kid in your life.  Commemorate a special event or give it “Just Because”.  Books teach reading skills and reading is a gift that lasts a lifetime.

If you think good sportsmanship is the most important element in sports, then ask for this Free True Sport Activity Book for kids.  *THIS IS NOW AVAILABLE VIA DOWNLOAD ONLY*.

My younger children played soccer in the past.  They cited many reasons they desired to quit, but other players’ bad attitudes really cultivated that desire more than anything else.  I have taught my kids to play fair.  They also know that anyone can master losing gracefully, but it’s equally important to be a gracious winner.  True Sport uses dot-to-dot, mazes, coloring pages, crossword puzzles and other fun activities to teach fairness and respect.

You can download and print this free 17 page activity book.

Free Bowling for Kids in the US and Canada

Kids Bowl Free

Free bowling for kids

Free bowling for kids in the US and Canada.  Click on “Finding a Bowling Center Near You” to find one in your area – US/Canada When you click on “Find a Bowling Center Near You” in the top right under the log-in, it will take you to a list of participating bowling alleys separated by Alphabetical State/Province.  Select the alley you want to use and you will be taken to a sign up form to participate.

I had completely forgotten about this offer.  Sad to say that Summer is almost over and I missed out on many free bowling opportunities with the kids this year.   The alley right down the road (almost walking distance) is a participant, too!  Oh well.  Winter is coming up and we will need some indoor activities to keep us occupied when the Minnesota snows start tumbling down.  I think some free games of bowling will fit that bill nicely.  Free activities for kids are so hard to find.  When kids are home for the summer, it can be expensive to keep them entertained and bored kids are more likely to get into trouble.
