Reading is a common activity in our household. I am glad that our three kids love to read and we have no problem getting them to read for extended periods of time. I attribute this greatly to the fact that we read to them regularly during their toddlerhood and preschool years.
With the advancement of technology, it is easy for kids nowadays to choose gadgets and screens over books. So, I am glad to hear that there are eBooks written specially for kids.
Kid Hero Stories is the brainchild of a mother who has decided to embrace technology instead of fighting it. With this in mind, and motivated by her own children’s love for reading, she started creating personalised eBooks for kids.
As the name goes, the hero in the stories is none other than your own child, complete with your child’s photo in the illustrations of the story.
The first time I received our personalised Kid Hero Story eBook, I couldn’t help but smile when I saw my kids’ photos in the illustrations. Their names are also being used in the story. In fact, the entire story is about them!
When Jay and Elly first saw the eBook, their eyes lit up with amusement and delight. They were intrigued and excited to see their own faces and read their names in the story. I read the story to them and when we came to the end, Elly asked me to read it again. And again. And again. Jay enjoyed reading the stories too and asked me if I could get more of such stories for him.
The fun thing for them was to see themselves and their siblings in the stories.
What I Like About Kid Hero Stories
The use of your child’s photo in the illustrations and name in the story makes it very personal and captivating for the child.
- Attractive illustrations
The colourful and attractive illustrations draw the reader into the story.
- Great for reluctant readers
Children who prefer gadgets to books can be introduced to the fun of reading through these personalised eBooks. After reading the eBooks on the iPad or computer, parents can print them out and hand them over to the kids, so that they can enjoy the stories again, this time in book form.
