Customized Children's Books

Using real life photos and notes from you or your child, I can create a beautiful customized experience for your family. The photos become digitized artwork and then I use your notes to create a story based on them. The story can be anything from meeting a new stuffed animal to a story as big as your child becoming a superhero.

In "The Chocolate Bear" A stuffed teddy bear tells his own story of being lonely and learning about the family of a little girl who likes to play with toys and has a wonderful family. The Chocolate Bear book ended with "Story Not Completed" until pictures of the bear with the little girl were returned. Then another version of the book was created detailing the teddy bear's happy ending with the little girl. This created a bonding experience that encouraged empathy and creativity for the little girl who was very happy to receive her new friend.

This is an excellent option for parents who want to introduce new personalized concepts, teach children about family that may live far away, encourage children to tell their own creative stories, and even create a family memorial with their own words and feelings.

Books are created on http://www.lulu.com as a 8.5"x 8.5" saddle stitch book with a glossy cover.  The book price includes digitizing the artwork, writing up the story, organizing the book, and publishing it to LuLu.
