I actually really enjoy reading together with young kids. It gives them encouragement to want to read and I think it is such an amazing idea. Great!

Jennifer Van Huss

My kids are huge readers! They especially love when they are personalized to them!I’ll have to check out these books for them!


My kids are avid readers and it’s all because I read to them when they were young. The idea of reading coupled with activities is sure to reinforce the lessons and help kids with cognitive skills that will help them in school.

This handbook looks beautiful and educational. I’m not that familiar with animals so this will also be helpful for me and not just for the kids.


My kids enjoy reading! I think it’s very important! I love checking out new books, used or new!

This concept of reading together and doing together is such a great idea! I love that kids get to learn about their state but also share their favorite things promoting not only reading and writing but also creating a beautiful memory book to last a lifetime.

This is a great series of books! I think it is important that kids learn about the state that they live in, and this teaches just that! I would really appreciate a book like this if I had small children.


Cool for a mother-daughter or mother-son tandem. Interesting and educational handbook.


These look like great books! My daughter loves to read and it looks like she would love to read these


These books look like a lot of fun. My daughter can’t read yet but she is trying a lot and getting better every day. I’m sure she would love the Lucky to Live in and The Wise Animal Handbook books.

I really love books that encourage education. When you can interact with a book on a different level, it make sit so much more meaningful.

My son has been an avid reader for a long time! We always read to him every night when he was little, then turned it into reading WITH him, then him reading to us… and now he reads in his free time


There is so much power, knowledge and connection when you read with your child.
