Create-a-Story Books

Create-a-Story Books bring the child into the heart of a specially crafted, handmade just for them quiet book.  It all starts with a name - the child's name - and then builds into a one-of-a-kind story or rhyme.  I work with you to create a story or rhyme befitting of the child who receives the book.  I print the finalized story onto a card and place it in a pocket on the back of the story book; as well as emailing the final story to you.

Some example stories:

Eva's Elephant

Little Miss Eva has an Elephant
He's very well-behaved. 
He lives out behind her house
in a little patch of shade.

They play together everyday
in the grass and sun and sand.
He's very kind and gentle. 
He even holds her hand!

They pick flowers in the morning,
sing in the afternoon.
They eat their Vegetables for dinner
then sleep beneath the moon.

Miss Eva loves her elephant,
he keeps her safe from harm.
Her brother has an Alligator,
who always gives alarm!

Hungry, Hungry Gabriel

Gabriel is a hungry fellow making his way to the kitchen from his room. This is what he finds along the way. (Grown-ups, please use your imagination to see that these are not just "toys" on the floor.)

Hungry, Hungry Gabriel went out for lunch one day
And couldn't quite believe what he found along the way.

First he saw Giraffe so tall, like his friend Mr. Rob.
Next a fearsome Alligator, who some call Smilin' Bob.

Then he found a big ol' Bear who looked a lot like Pooh.
But he kept on walking, not sure what to do.

Just around the corner he found a Rocket ship,
Blue and red and shiny, he thought about a trip.

But no, no time for Mars today, there's Ice Cream up ahead.
He set on about his way, he had to use his head.

Surely he could find his lunch, his tummy started to rumble,
But what a tricky path today - be careful not to tumble!

When all the sudden he spotted now a great big Elephant!
He gave him a pat on the trunk, but onward still he went.

And finally right before his eyes - LUNCH!

It pains me to have to say this, but I must - please do not steal my stories.  I work hard to create them for the intended child.  If you have interest in using or reprinting one of my stores, please contact me - I'm sure we can work something out.
