CONSULTATION

- LET'S GET WHAT YOU WANT ONTO PAPER

We will do a consultation either over the phone, Skype/Messenger or in-person

(depending on what you or your schedule is most comfortable with).
The consultation is when you will describe who you want The Personalized Story Book created for, what you are thinking it should be about, & ask us any and all questions you can think of.
If you include your child/children in the brain storming of their story, they will feel empowered, special, confident and loved.

 

To write your personalized story, we will ask you a few questions.

Examples of some questions, so you can get an idea:
- Age of character/main characters?
- Gender/s?
- Interests?
- Is this to instill a love of learning, to teach an important life-lesson,

just as a fun experience, as a self-esteem booster,

as a personalized gift, another reason or all of the above?
- Reading level? (We custom write your book from ages 0 through adult.)

- & more

STORY IDEAS

FOR YOUR PERSONALIZED BOOK

FOR CHILDREN

Parenting is hard.

​There are so many life lessons, morals and values that you want to teach your child/children.

Not to mention that you want to make sure that they have good self-esteem and self-confidence.

Teaching and fostering these in a way that really

sticks with your child/children is difficult at best.

​​​​

For example, imagine trying to explain to your 4-year old the importance of stranger-danger,

or why it's not a good idea to wander off on their own in a park/mall & ending up lost?

Or, how do you encourage your 9-year old to be nice to people who are different from him/her

- or encourage him/her to believe in themselves

no matter what their friends or other children at school say?

BENEFITS

  1. Great teaching tool
     

  2. A confidence booster
     

  3. Amazing gift
     

  4. Creates an experience for your child to remember

  7. Makes your child feel valued and loved
     

  8. Promotes a healthy imagination,
    which is proven to make children
    more successful in school & life

     

  9. Interesting creative portraits that are
