Toys, toys everywhere. I often find my home buried in toys and wonder if other parents suffer the same fate. When it is time to give a gift, I think books are a great solution. They really don't add to the clutter since they stack neatly on a shelf and they are the gift that keeps giving with each reading session.
I was happy to try out a new personalized book from Custom Made for Kids. The company produces unique stories for your child (or niece, or grandson, or child's best friend). The process is simple. First you select the type of book you desire from the First Adventures of the Incredible You series. Start off with a personal dedication, and then move along to fill in local parks, favorite activities and friends, etc. There are 17 questions in all. With just a few clicks you've created a treasure. ($32.95)
In a hurry? You can expedite the book's shipping and get it in about a week! I was impressed with the quality and the creativity of the book. The illustrations are pretty and the book looks expensive--it's sure to become a treasure in your home.
