Do you remember the saying: Never judge a book by it’s cover, well in this case it’s a pumpkin. The story The Legend of Spookley The Square Pumpkin delivers a very special message to kids of tolerance and self acceptance. To me it also teaches them it’s ok to be different and everyone has something special about them.
Do you like story books that you can personalize? I absolutely love them. My daughter loves to take self portraits when she reads these books. It is a lot of fun for her to have an excuse to play with the camera on the iphone and ipad. Some of the self portraits she takes are funny.

Have you ever gone shopping with your kids and turned around to look and one takes off and disappears. It has happened to me before. My 3 year old likes to push the child size carts around the store and if you take your eyes off her for a second you see her scurrying down the isle with her little cart. She doesn’t get far before she has to turn around though. I sure know how the mother monkey felt in the story of 5 Little Monkeys Go Shopping by Oceanhouse Media.
If you like personalized stories for your kids then Picture Me Cute As A Bee by Oceanhouse Media is a book you will enjoy. The story is a spring like story with baby characters dressed as fuzzy bunnies, bumblebee, flowers, baby bird and a hungry bear.
My daughter enjoyed seeing herself in the story. She also really adored the babies in the story. The story is also interactive. You can move some of the animations around as well as hear cheerful babies laughing and other sounds that go with the story. I really liked that I could use multiple pictures through the story. Also the ease of taking a picture right from the camera function in the app was very convenient as well as being easy to adjust the pictures to size.
We got a chance to read Enchanted Tales: Treasure Island. This was a very good book. Before I get into my review let me tell you what this was about.

When trouble arises, the trio barely escape the pirate’s midnight mutiny as they flea to Treasure Island – where they embark on a wild, laugh-packed quest to unearth the buried doubloons before the bumbling buccaneers beat them to it!
