Buy a personalised book to read with your child

For under $15, you can get personalised children’s books that have stories in it with your child and their friend’s names in the story. Have a look on-line, they are easy to find.

Young children love to hear about themselves and are enthralled when they are featured in the book. Ordering the book can be done anytime – all you need to do is work out who else is to be named in the story.

When the book arrives, put it aside until you have some time to read it with your child and they will think you have been so smart and thoughtful.
