New Personalized Book Teaches Kids Counting with Animals

Little One, Little One Personalized Book
Kids will undoubtedly learn a lot when they begin to go to school, but there is plenty that parents can do to help prepare kids for the classroom. Learning doesn’t have to only start with school; it should start at home and parents should seize every opportunity. This will not only help kids acclimatize to the atmosphere of the classroom environment more easily, it will also help teach them to look and learn from everything.
One of the most important things that parents can do to help jump-start their kids’ education is to read books to them, with them, and to encourage them to read on their own. Little One, Little One is a favorite personalized book among parents who are looking to help give their kids a head start on pre-school. This personalized storybook keeps their imaginations entertained while also tickling their brains by introducing important skills. This rhyming story book introduces picture counting, helps kids learn and become familiar with colors, and even helps kids with animal recognition as well.
By involving kids with a personalized book, they are more likely to want to interact with the story while building their skills and confidence in reading. When kids are already familiar with these concepts, they will be more likely to excel in the classroom environment and expand their skills even further.



Snow Day! No School! What to Do?

Snowy days can certainly be exciting. While kids may be tempted to enjoy the outdoors, there is usually a time limit before toes get too cold. There are plenty of fun, cozy things to do inside on a snowy day to keep any child (or adult for that matter) thoroughly entertained.
Reading in an indoor fort

1.  Build a Fort. This is a rainy or snow day mainstay. Building a fort can be loads of fun and many of the other things that you can do on a cozy day in the house can also be enjoyed from within the fort, so why not make it first on your list? Gather your pillows, cushions, extra blankets and guest linens into the most lavish and/or most comfortable concoction you and your child can dream up. Light it up with some glowy lamps, night-lights, or strings of Christmas lights you haven’t quite gotten around to putting away yet.

2.     Read a Book. Once you’ve built your fort, you are ready to go. Reading is a great activity for snow days. Whether kids are reading to themselves, reading aloud or everyone is sharing in the experience of a well-told story, reading is a great activity. Books can help transport your imaginations to all of the places the snow is keeping you from getting to. Read a book to unlock your child’s imagination and see where it leads.

3.     Act out a Book. Once you have read a book or two, acting out the stories and characters can be a great way to keep a good story going. Bring the adventure to life by play-acting the characters read from the story.  Reenact the events of the story or create your very own sequel! Let imagination run wild.

4.     Play Games. Whether you break out the board games or create a round of charades centered on the characters and events from the books you read, playing games is a great way to pass the time on a snow day. These activities allow for meaningful family time while also allowing for maximum fun as well.

5.     Make a Family Dinner. With everyone home, get the whole family involved in making a collective dinner, even the little ones. Kids are more likely to try new foods if they have a hand in preparing and cooking it so this is a great way to try out new recipes while making some memories. It is also a great way to top off a cozy day spent indoors.
