The bedtime story is more than a part of a child’s bedtime routine. When they listen to a book, children learn concepts of print. They see how print is actually spoken word, pick up on the ways language can be played with to express thoughts and feelings, and develop a rich vocabulary.
Recently, our Director, Joanne Sallay, had the chance to review a book, for Village Living Magazine called Meet Me in Zzzz. She described it as, ‘magnetic’ because it actually is! The picture book is custom made by the purchaser. They create customized magnets that include one photo of the child plus another eight photos of choice. The nine magnets create the characters for Meet Me in Zzzz, all of whom are central figures in the life of the little reader.
By making the story personal, this will be a tale the child will want to read over and over again. It will also make a wonderful keepsake, especially when it comes from a family member who doesn’t live close to the reader-what an amazing way to build a connection!
MagneTree Books is giving away a copy of Meet Me in Zzzz to one of our readers! Enter to win via the Rafflecopter.
