I have four great kids- Slone, Marren, Lucia, Lorén and a wonderful husband, Chris. I spend my days juggling kids’ activities, work responsibilities, household duties, and an occasion workout. I love spending time with my family, so I decided that I would stay home with the kids after my daughter, Lucia, was born in January 2006. As a CPA, for the next 3 years I was able to telecommute doing accounting work for a worldwide company based in The Woodlands, Texas. Then in September 2010 we relocated to Edwardsville, Illinois. In January 2007, when my daughter Lucia was a year old, we realized that she was somewhat behind her peers in meeting certain developmental milestones.
I got the black one, cause my son can see it very well. He is 3 years old with lots of delays, so his preschool uses his book filled with pictures to play a game on point to the picture for what toy you want. He has delay issues in speech and walking. He has what my mom and I have. He is the only known living boy with it. He also has other issues which delay his abilities to do things normal 3 year olds do. So his school enjoys this book, they fill it up weekly with different pictures and he points to what he wants. They also use it for other games to help him grow into more learning levels! The company shipped it to me fast. Great quality, lasts a very long time, even being used daily, touched a million times a day for 3 hrs. I wanted to wait to post this review so I could put it to a test on durability around fingers/kids/my sons hands and well it passed very well, it does look used, but the pictures are still attached well, pages are well attached still. It handles droll well enough. Also handles being touched alot my teachers and sticky fingers. These books are cheap enough to buy a lot and expand those kids minds. Great for traveling too, so they can throw those snap shots in it! My son Malakai loves his pix book so much, as well as his teachers!
