Jaiden’s Little Book of Blessings by I See Me

The struggle is real!
That is the reading struggle of course!!
What in the world did you think I was talking about?? =P

Jaiden is in the first grade and sadly the Philadelphia Schools are over packed and understaffed.
It is what it is but some children suffer from this.

Kids learn in all different ways and I am first to admit my toughness on my son. I am tough and I am very strict!
I have no shame in admitting this. I know my temper gets the best of me at time but I see entirely too many parents that don’t care about their children’s education.

Something I have learned about my son is that he LOVES when his picture(s) or name is in a book! He things it’s the greatest thing next to pizza and fries!!!
I kid you not! He LOVES it!!! And that brings me here today with Jaiden’s Little Book of Blessings.

This book is from I See Me. I See Me has a huge series or books that you can personalize with your children’s name and photo through out the book.

This book does include God. I am not going to get too much into that because everyone believes in different Gods and such.
Jaiden’s Little Book of Blessings is a simple book that is all about kindness, love and treating others the way you want to be treated.

If you are not a religious person I still believe this particular book is good for any child. It’s just a great way to remind children to be kind to all people and animals. To be thankful for the food we eat and to just enjoy life.

Jaiden really enjoyed this book. He loves that is name is throughout the book and that his photo is in the front.
Jaiden doesn’t know about God but he’s learning. He’s only 7 and he understands the book and the meaning behind the words.

The illustrations in this books are stunning. The illustrations are very well done and fit the book well. They are soft and not overly bright.

Each page has I guess what you may call a title for the following text. I want to share with you my personal favorite.

Helping Hands
Jaiden, Bless your hands forever more to do a chore, hold a door, sweep the floor, serve the poor…
Helping out is what they’re for!

It’s a very simple passage and it is extremely well written that a 7 year old can understand.

Jaiden has had a tough time with his reading and I continue to push him. However, knowing that Jaiden loves books with his name and pictures in them I can go to I See Me and get books I know will encourage my baby to read. He’s learning to love reading and when he got his new book from I See Me… I have never seen him SO excited about a book!

He wants more and I can’t wait to get him more!!
Every child is different. They learn different ways and at different paces and as a mother who struggled with reading and school in general I totally get it.

Continue to push your children. I know it can be hard but be their rock!
I See Me has out done themselves! They gave my son a reason to love reading and are helping me instill values in my son!

He is such a happy boy and just loves his book!
I See Me has many other items besides personalized books. Be sure to check them out for their personalized gifts, personalized books, growth charts, lunch boxes, and all the other goodies they have!!!

    I remember how exciting it was for my nephews to be able to read their own names when they were younger! What a fun book for him to get to read. I love anything that gets kids reading with how many electronic distractions there are these days.

    From the title alone I could tell that this is an awesome book and worth looking into for my little nephews and nieces, while trying to get my tween to read it to them! I love stories that are animated and give out an important lesson. Thanks for sharing!

    We love to read. And I love personalized books. I got one for my son, and he loved it. I’ve never heard of this one though. It sounds like a great book. And he will love the illustrations.

    Many public school systems are understaffed. I teach in one! many of my students struggle to read but I agree that if a book has their name in it, they really want to read it! This sounds like a great book and the pictures that you show are really well done.

    These ISeeMe books are soooo cool! My (soon-to-be) two year old niece received one of these books for Easter last year and it’s been her favorite book to read at bedtime since that date. She’s tiny but demands that she be read her ISeeMe book! They’re on to something and that’s awesome that your little one is learning to read with his book, I bet my niece will want to learn to read her ISeeMe book first as well. :)

    Great post! There’s just something special about having a book with your name in it. I once had a book made for me where I was the main character in the story and my parents couldn’t get me to stop reading it. Hey, whatever it takes to get a child to love to reading, right? Glad to see that you’re finding ways to keep Jaden engaged even when the school system is not doing it’s part.

    How awful that your sons school is understaffed but well done you mama for paying such close attention to his education and wanting the best for him. We love to read too, our son has quite a library and he’s only 2! I really like the sound of this book and the illustrations are super sweet too.

    Jaiden can be a kid model, what a cute boy you have. I love the idea of kids being able to see themselves a the hero or being part of the story, as I think that can really open up their imagination and also encourage them to read. I also love that book teaches them about God. Great review!

    The content of the book sounds very sweet and very helpful at the same time. Your son will learn so much. And it is so nice that the books are personalized. I remember seeing similar books years ago, and kids do get so excited when they see their name in the book.

    My kids got books with their names used in them for Christmas last year. They loved that they had their own books with their own little stories.
