Kids love stories they can jump into and be a part of from start to finish. These stories are even better when they are personalized so they are a part the adventure. Your Book, Your Story wants to put your special child into fun stories that will help to jump start their imaginations.

Making story time your own
For each story, Your Book, Your Story asks for some information to customize a story for a special child. There is even dedication page letting the owner of the book how special they are.
Pirate School (Primary/Elementary)
This personalized story leads your child on a fun pirate adventure with their friends and teacher. The group go on an adventure to find the treasure of Clever Island. This book is for primary/elementary readers. (There is also a version for daycare/pre-school readers).
My son really loved this book. He started giggling when he saw the names of his friends in the story. He was happily surprised to see that his teacher would be leading them on this journey as pirates on the search for treasure.
The story is at a great reading level for him. He was able to get through the book without much trouble.
A Mysterious Gift
This story takes your little one on a journey around the world on their birthday. It would make for a special gift to open on their special day. This story is for readers 3-8 years-old.
In this story, your special girl and her friends get to become princesses with special powers. It is a fun holiday-themed book your girl will love. This book is for children ages 3-8 years-old.
My daughter was so excited about reading this book! She loves “being” a princess, so this book was a perfect choice for her.
My girl loves the idea of becoming a princess with super powers. She also likes being able to help Santa by delivering presents with her best friends by her side. She is still curious as to how Santa is able to do this. Being able to takeover this responsibility was a fun adventure for her to go on.
The Impish Elves
In this Christmas story your child is in the middle of a magical adventure with his or her friends and a cute little mouse friend named Nibble. This story is for children ages 3-8 years-old.
Santa Claus’ Glasses
It’s December 25th, and young readers are taken on a magical journey of the preparation and anxious anticipation of the big day. This book is for readers 3-8 years-old.
The Apprentice Knight
Your special child and his or her friends go on a quest to fulfill his or her dream of becoming a real knight. This story is for 3-8 years-old readers.
This book is about a baby’s journey from it’s mommy’s tummy to being welcomed into the world by its family. It is a great keepsake for parents to have to share wth their little ones during story time. There is another version that is for a child to gift to a younger sibling.
I am no longer looking to having a new edition to my family. I thought this book for a friend of mine who recently became a new mom.
The personal details are woven well into this tale. It is heart-warming, and I know she will be thrilled to read it to her little one. The illustrations in this story, and all of the book we received, are very cute, colourful, and engaging.
Where story time does not make a connection
Even though my kids loved reading these stories, they were a bit disappointed they could not fully connect with their characters in these books.
My kids said the stories would have been better if they could quickly see themselves and their friends in each of the adventures. My littles ended up picking out which characters they were in each of these tales. They enjoyed their personalized stories, but their characters did not look like them in these tales.
Making Your Own Story Time Fun
Overall, my kids enjoy reading stories with a personal touch from Your Book, Your Story. They loved reading the exciting adventures in each book. Seeing their names and the names of their friends in these journeys made them light up and giggle. My littles wished they would have been able to actually see themselves in each of the tales, but they were still able to want to read the adventures over and over again.
