Do you ever wish you had guidance in explaining the difficult things in life to your child? I do! My two boys have been through a lot in their young lives, and books by Twigtale would have made so many of the transitions easier. Twigtale makes books that are written by experts but that you can edit it to fit your child’s needs. My youngest, Kiernan, is having his tonsils removed next week, so I selected a book to help him understand the process.
I received product to facilitate this post.
Childhood Transitions Books Written by Experts
The book I selected From Twigtale was “Getting a Tonsillectomy,” written by Dr. Shawn Nasseri. He earned his medical degree at Harvard Medical School and knows how to explain a procedure that seems scary to a kid into something calm. Kiernan is having both his tonsils and adenoids removed so I had to do a little bit of editing to make it work to fit, but that was incredibly simple.
Personalized Books – Gather Your Photos
Starting the book was very easy. The 1st thing I did was print the list of what pictures I needed. Then I hunted through my phone and camera to find what I needed. Since we wouldn’t be seeing the surgeon before the surgery, I selected photos of the doctor from the internet, I used them but, they weren’t the recommended quality. I saved the photos into a folder on my desktop and got to work.
Upload and Edit Your Text for Personalized Kids Books
Uploading the photos was very easy, then you put the photos in the right spots and editing the text… it will ask you some simple questions. For this book is asks the doctor’s name and he/she, him/her, this way the book keeps them comfortable with their doctor. Then you will have boxes of text (gray with a border) that you can further edit to fit your needs.
Submit Your Book for Printing
After your done you submit your book for printing. Mine arrived very quickly. I was worried it wouldn’t arrive in time but it made it with almost a week to spare. When it arrive it was beautifully wrapped in a velum paper.
I was worried that some of my photos namely the one of the doctor on the cover wouldn’t look good because of less than recommended quality. But take a look for yourself… I think it looks wonderful.
Use Your Book Often
Kiernan can’t get enough of his new book and I am so glad to have it to help him be more comfortable. He reads it with me several times a day and shows it off to everyone. I may be stretching here but I almost think he’s excited. Check out my full book here.
