Sometimes the stars align and the perfect book falls into place. My dear friend Reema has created Spin Me A Tale . She takes a child's love of adventure, love of reading and morph it into a fun, personalized story book.
There is nothing my three children like more than staring at pictures of themselves and hearing all about the wonderful things they can do. Reema has created and written a wonderful adventure book that plugs in your child's name and picture into the main character of the story. They go on a safari through the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Just think about all the fun facts and animals they meet along the way!
The process of creating the book is very quick, fun and interactive. Both my three year old and five year old enjoyed the process completely.
First, you want to grab your iPad, not a necessity but much easier for kids to have an interactive experience they are familiar with. Next, upload a few photos of your child looking straight into the camera, then begin the adventure! The process is a fun safari game in which you follow animal tracks to find the missing zebra. During the adventure they get to design their own jeep and create a picture which will all show up in the final product- their very own, personalized safari adventure story! Below you will see my children working together to follow animal tracks and create the perfect safari picture that later showed up in their book.
The turn around time is remarkably fast. I had two personalized books arrive in the mail in just a few days. Both kids loved reading about their safari adventure. Of course I love watching them enjoy reading, but Reema took an extra step to include actual facts in the story. My son Jack now thinks he is an expert in identifying animal tracks!
Overall, this was such a wonderful experience for my kids. It would be a fantastic gift, or just something to give your child's interest in reading an extra boost. I am so proud of all the hard work Remma has put into Spin Me A Tale, this adventure story will forever have a special place on our bookshelf.
