Get kids to engage in reading with I See Me Books


Baby Kolton has already taught us to be thankful for even the little things, like blowing bubbles.  Sounds silly right?  When he was 8 days old his newborn screening results came back and his doctors office was rushing us to a childrens hospital for further testing.  When they tell you not to google a condition that your child may or may not have, just don't do it.  Listen to me because that was the worst thing I could have ever possibly done.  I put myself into a complete hell for two weeks while we waited to know the final results.   While we waited at the lab, the secretary was blowing bubbles with the kids because they were overbooked and understaffed that day.  We were there for what seemed like forever with our 8 day old baby just waiting.  While she was blowing bubbles with the kids, many of them really truly ill, all I could think of was my baby may never get to blow bubbles.  

"Thank you, Lord, for Everything", with all the prayer in the world, our baby boy is healthy and will get to blow bubbles one day!  





The week before last I ordered this book from I See ME, so that one day I can explain to him how great-full we are to be blessed with him and how he should never take anything for granted no matter how simple or small it may seem.  

I love the I See Me books! This one for example, "Thank You, Lord, For Everything" are personalized several times with Kolton's name and other details about who he is.  In both the books we were able to add a picture and dedication.  I wrote in his baby book "For you, We Prayed" and I put that in this book as well.  We prayed for him before we were pregnant and we prayed for him with his testing, and we will continue to pray for him that he is a strong confident responsible person one day.  

Look at the bird in the window "Time to wake up, Kolton".  I love that these books are written so that as he get's older he will realize that the bear in this one is actually him!  What a great way to encourage kids to read! 


"Kolton's Radio Flyer Adventure" is also so stinking cute!!  I was able to personalize his hair and skin color, what toy he was riding around on (I designed the wagon was cute), and of course that adorable cover page.


Kolton's Radio Flyer Adventure is about a little boy who just want's to play outside with his wagon but its a rainy day so he has to use his imagination for their great adventure!  This book is too cute!  His name is in it so many times from the sign at the land of adventure to his wagon and leaves in a tree.  So much detail!  Of course Kolton is the main character in the story and saves the day! 

All three of the big kids have been taking turns reading to Kolton. These books are so special the way they are personalized, they are encouraging everyone to pick them up and see how Kolton saves the day! I love how engaged these books encourage the kids to be with reading to their baby brother.
