Twigtale Personalized Books knows that dealing with transitions is not always easy for children, even if they are common everyday transitions like going to school, sleeping in a new bed, learning to share, going to the doctor, and so on and so forth. When you get the big changes like the illness of a loved one, loss of a pet, or even a family separation or divorce, kids can get really confused with their emotions.
One way to help children learn about and deal with such situations is to read a relevant story to them, that is of course age appropriate. Twigtale has you covered with many book topics pre-designed to help you better explain to the children what is going on, and let them know everything is going to be okay. The best part is, you can personalize the pages with your own photos, and you can change some of the words, to help fit your needs.
There are also 'every day' book topic selections, like 'Me and Mommy,' 'Me and Daddy,' (I thought those would be great for Mother's Day or Father's Day which are coming up very quickly!), and 'My Book of Firsts,' to name a few. You can see an example of the latter in the picture above (that is the book cover).
That is my oldest son taking his daughter to the beach for the first time, and that picture makes me happy. :)
These are not like a typical photo book where every page is written by you. Those are great but they do take so much time to make. Twigtale books are pre-written, and you have the option to change a word or two on each page. In the picture above you can see that I selected my own title (I used 'Mail for Rosey' for an example, if I were making the book for my granddaughter it would have her name, and say 'by Grandma,' instead of 'by Rosey').
|Example Page: You get to choose the word 'boy' or 'girl' (or you could fill in your own word).|
Everything else was permanent, which is great for keeping it simple, on-task, and relevant to the storyline you selected.
|The final product is a nice big size too!|
Turnaround time on these books is fast! The quality of the pictures and words is sublime, and it is a most excellent resource for helping children with challenging transitions, or for just helping them enjoy what they already have in their lives.
