Book Review: Jared’s Happy 4th Birthday Book From I See Me

Not too long ago, I was approached by I See Me if they can send over a free sample in exchange for an honest review. Books are my absolute loves and a personalized book for the little man {or for anyone in any age} is all right in my book, and I believe in anyone’s book, at any given time! :-))

From a wide array of exciting books for children to choose from, I opted for this Very Happy Birthday Personalized Book for Boys. It was rather timely as my son will be celebrating his 4th birthday this month. A few weeks after I submitted my request for this book, we received the parcel at home. The book tucked safely in a sea of bubblewraps to ensure that my son gets it in the best of condition.

I See Me Books in a nutshell

Jared’s Very Happy 4th Birthday book!

The I See Me Books are unlike most run-of-the-mill books you can simply purchase at any physical bookstores or any book shops online. They are personalized with your children’s faces and names, with your children playing a part of the book and being an important part of the story. Now, I know most mums will agree that there is nothing that thrills our kids that most, from the little babies to the ever-impressionable toddlers, than to see their faces or read their names on print! Call them little narcissists but they do get a kick at seeing their faces in just about anywhere, or reading their names on stuff they own, when they are a bit older.

Out of a wide variety of I See Me books available, one of the other reasons why I opted for the Happy Birthday Book is that my son is now in the his reading-my-letters phase. He can now read all the letters of the alphabet and although he is still hard-up on stringing these letters into words, he can now spell his own name and recognize them when he sees it. I am sure he will be delighted to read his name in every page of this personalized book. Besides he also enjoys reading and is now rediscovering his love for mum-reading-aloud so he will surely have a fascinating time hearing me read all about the animals’ adventure in helping prepare a special birthday party for him! And did I mention he loves animals? Plus it is also a perfect tool to build up his anticipation for his upcoming birthday! 😀

Top Tips To ChooseThe Perfect Tent For Your Family Camping Trip

tips + tricks, travel, best things to do this summer

Tents are a vital piece of camping equipment, and taking your time to choose the perfect one will ensure that your trip is a success. There are numerous different tents to choose, all of which have different benefits. You need to consider how many people will need to sleep in the tent, where you intend to camp and your budget.

Family camping trips have always been popular, and even today with the vast array of other options, some families prefer to simply go camping. There are many different pieces of camping equipment that you will need; however, the tent is the most vital. You need to take your time searching the different tents and choose wisely.

Ease of set up is an essential thing that you need to consider when searching for the perfect tent as camping is all about relaxing. You do not want to choose a tent that is difficult to put up as this can cause stress and tension for everyone. Read the reviews regarding the set up time, and decide if you can easily cope with the instructions.

Space inside the tent is vital as you do not want to feel cramped and uncomfortable during the night. All tents state how many people will comfortably fit in the tent in a sleeping position, and you need to take notice of this advice. You also need to consider extra room for bedding, supplies and backpacks; therefore, a larger tent is always a better option.

Headroom is another factor that you need to think about to ensure that you can easily move about without crouching for the whole time. Some tents are measured by the center height and others by peak height. If you want maximum headroom choose a tent with more center height, allowing everyone more space.

Ground sheets are often forgotten about when purchasing the tent; however, this is a vital piece of camping equipment. This sheet will help to make the ground more comfortable, and stop sticks and rocks penetrating the tent. A decent night’s sleep is vital for everyone, and having a quality groundsheet can make a massive difference.

Rain flies are a part of the tent that some manufacturers supply as standard, but you may find that cheaper tents do not have this part included. The rain fly is positioned above the roof of the tent and helps to stop any water entering the tent. There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning in a wet tent.

Price is a large factor that you need to consider, as the price of tents varies so much from manufacturer to manufacturer. Lower priced tents are perfect for once in a while camping trips, however if you intend to camp many times you may want to spend more on the tent. Top quality tents are far more durable and will last longer providing value for money.
