Personalized Books

“It’s mine! The book is for me!” My son’s face broke out into the biggest smile I’d ever seen when we received our personalized books from Chronicle Books. Available in both personalized and non personalized versions, these classic favourites. These bedtime classics are available on, but you also have the option to turn them into personalized mementos for your little ones. We received a couple samples of both and our favorite by far the personalized version. My son has asked us to read him “Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site, over and over again. As soon as we turn the first […] Continue reading →


Bring on the New Year’s resolutions, goals, focus words, and positive changes! I hope you are all off to a cleansing start to 2014 and had a wonderful holiday season.

As a voracious reader who loves the feel, smell and overall experience of an actual book, eReaders weren’t big on my list of must-haves, however since becoming a mom of 3, my time spent reading has been cut down significantly and I don’t have the time I used to have to sit down with a book. Since I embraced the idea of an e-reader, I’ve been able to stick to my reading goal each year and have increased the amount of books I read […] Continue reading →

There are many children who are born multilingual. Their parents speak both languages throughout the day and they are immersed in both whether it be at home, school or with their peers.
