Fun Reading!

Reading to our kids is a great way of bonding and settling them down before bedtime! Not only does it make them appreciate reading itself, but it brings parents and children together. Mixing it up and reading different kinds of books to your kids will also make them more open to different genres and writing styles, early and later on in life. Customized books are also a way to get your children into books, because seeing their name on each page is both exciting and makes them want to read on! Some examples of great books such as these are Frecklebox’s personalized books! These books can be found at http://www.frecklebox.com/personalized-books-for-kids-81c.aspx, and feature your child’s name on each and every page! Make reading fun!

Frecklebox on TV!

Wow…Frecklebox just had its first appearance on TV!

We’d like to thank everyone at the show for making us feel comfortable and welcome. And I have to say, Spencer Christian and Jannelle Wang were even nicer in person than they appear on TV.

Our segment on the show was about our personalized books and personalized gifts and how they can encourage kids to read more. We made a personalized placemat and personalized coloring book for Spencer and a personalized journal and personalized princess coloring book for Jannnelle.

Check us out on the 4/20 episode of The View From The Bay:
