How does it work?
- Go to the Collection of Stories page and pick a story.
- Once you make a selection, you will be asked to fill in the specificities in order to personalize the story for your child. This should only take a few minutes.
- Upon completion, you will receive your own customized story with illustrations that you can print for immediate use. Your completed storybook will also be saved your own private, password protected Story Archive and will be available for you to view at any time.
The Stories are appropriate for what age group?
These stories are most effective for children ages 2 to 10. Some stories focus on issues that affect younger children, while others are better suited for older children. We recommend that you preview the stories in our Collection of Stories
in order to be able to assess which stories are appropriate for your child.
What if I enter incorrect information?
You will have an opportunity to check your story for any mistakes before finalizing the story. Please check and re-check the information that you have entered in your personalized children's story during the customization segment of this process During this stage, you can correct any mistakes or make changes to your story. Once your story has been finalized, however, you can no longer make any changes.
Can I order a personalized story for more than one child?
Yes. We keep the cost of our stories as low as possible so that families with multiple children can order customized stories for each child. Life events and changes affect each child differently, so we believe that each child should have their own customized story featuring the events and issues that are most salient to their own life.
Can a story feature more than one child as the main character?
These personalized stories are intended to feature one child, and each story is about that particular child's life. While other children such as siblings and friends can be mentioned in the story, the focus can only be on one child.
