Celebrate Halloween with these sweet new treats

Personalized Halloween Books

Halloween offers children much more than just candy—it’s one of the greatest holidays for a child to exercise their imagination, giving them full freedom to express themselves however they choose. Dressing up as a favorite character, exploring pumpkin patches and haunted houses, and sharing harmlessly spooky stories are wonderful ways for children to let their imagination and creativity soar to new heights!

Put Me In The Story Summer Reading Guide

This summer reading list for kids is just as much fun as summer day camp!

School’s out! What next?

By now, your kiddos are either already out of school for summer break or are just counting down the days. It’s possible they may have even been looking forward to this break since school started in the fall.

On top of all the fun and activity, you want to also make sure they are continuing to learn and finding the joy books they love. (Hint: this is how little ones become lifetime readers!)

Whether your child is not yet in school, has just finished preschool, kindergarten, or the first grade, personalized books can make summer awesome. You’ll surely keep your kids busy learning and having fun with our personalized books summer reading guide!

Moms are Amazing!

(Artwork by Marianne Richmond

No matter if you use cloth diapers or disposable diapers, work full time or stay at home all day, cook for your children or take a family excursion to a different restaurant every day, you are an AMAZING mom!

As long as you love your kids the best way you know how, you are an all-star mom. How do we know?

(Artwork from Marianne Richmond's If I Could Keep You Little...)

Spring has sprung! OK, so maybe not quite yet for everyone…but we’re getting there.

Late last week marked the first day of spring. For some of us, the beginning of spring means it still feels questionably like winter outside. But do not fear. We are staying positive that this wintry feeling is on its way out here soon. Spring is finally springing—let’s keep this positive thought in mind through the rest of March and into the beginning of April!

(Artwork from Marianne Richmond's Hooray for You!) 

Whether you’re Irish or not, writing limericks (or any form of poetry, really) is fun! A limerick is a short, funny riddle or poem that rhymes in a well-defined form. Limericks are only five lines long and because they’re so short and rhythmic, they’re quite easy to memorize and tons of fun to read aloud.

Since it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, we thought it would be fun for you to sit down with your kids and do a little creative writing exercise to celebrate the Irish. It’s very easy!

Did you know that the Peanuts’ history dates back as early as 1950, when cartoonist Charles Schulz’s first comic strip was printed in seven different newspapers? Fifteen years later, good ‘ol Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the gang even made their way on to the cover of TIME in 1965…and on the screens of televisions! 1966 introduced Peppermint Patty, and shortly thereafter, in 1970, Snoopy found a little feathery friend named after the music festival “Woodstock.”

Now, 64 years later in 2014, we’re pleased to announce that Charlie and the Peanuts characters will be joining the Put Me In The Story gang!

(Artwork from My Name Is Not Alexander by Jennifer Fosberry and Mike Litwin) 


Did you know our presidents were great readers? Thomas Jefferson’s personal library was one of the largest. It went through many stages, including the loss of many books to a fire in his childhood home. But, when the Library of Congress burned down in 1814, he had the largest collection of books in America. It was to the Library of Congress that he eventually sold his collection.
