We all try to be good Mom’s.
We feed our kids great food, give them baths, sing silly songs and read to them.
Sometimes, good deeds bring very harsh reality.
That the same book, over… and over… and over can breed… insanity.
I can not tell you how many times I have said. “Go Dog Go” or “Emmy said: Let go get some dandelions”… I need something different, and so do my daughters.
Storytots was the answer. I pulled the book out of the packaging and was instantly in love. The book is sturdy and fun, with bright colors, beautifully illustrated pictures and a little girl that looked just like Issa.
And more importantly… it has her name in it.
I couldn’t wait for the next bath time and snuggle in the chair, hair was combed, jammies wrapped around clean bodies that smelled like oranges. We all cuddled up and opened the book with anticipation.
I loved how their eyes lit up when I said “Issa” the first time. They both looked at me and waited for me to say it again. Pretty soon they were pointing out monkeys and yelling out names of other people in the story. It was an interactive reading night instead of just fighting me to turn the page.
Issa now calls it her “Issa Monkey” book.
I can tell you that this holiday season I will be purchasing at least three of these books and one gift certificate.
Yes, I said it, gift certificate. This will be for my best friend’s son, he will be getting one of these delightful gifts and his parents will get to make it for him! What a cool present all the way around.
Another wonderful fact about these books, they are created by a talented MOMpreneur located here in
