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.
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!
