Do you remember fairy tales from when you were a kid?  The old classic fairy tales are downright scary.  I still remember reading, “The Little Match Girl”.  Yikes, it was soooooo sad.

And we were read those scary fairy tales at bedtime!

Yikes!  What were our parent’s thinking?

No wonder kids had nightmares.  Hmmm, let’s see, just before bed I’ll tell the story of a wolf that eats a grandma???

Well, My1story has kept the traditional line of fairytales but guarantees a positive spin until the happy ending.

The book I read to my daughter is “I Love Cake (Lil’ Riding Hood and Wolfie)”.  It’s a great story and easy to read.  There are just-the-right amount of words per page for an early reader and for a read-out-loud.  Have you ever read a book with too many words and your child is losing interest, trying to turn pages, and you are reading on and on and on?  Or, your child doesn’t even hardly get to digest the pictures because you are flipping through it?  I found “I Love Cake” to be perfectly timed.  The book itself is a nice quality hardcover (10 inches by 10 inches) with 48 pages – impressive.

The illustrations are beautiful and very kid-friendly.  Drawn by Jaime Rodriguez, a former Walt Disney Company character artist, the little girl and wolf are adorable!  I know, sounds strange to say the wolf is adorable, but that’s how these books roll!  Think adorable – not scary!

Another mystery… why, when my child already has a gazillion plush toys, she still wants another one?  And another one?  And another one??  And why, despite the gazillion, do I look at the one she wants, say, “Awwww” and buy it for her.  Moms, but especially kids are suckers for adorable plush toys.

My1story comes in again and matches an adorable plush toy for your child to hug while you read that story!

Awww…. the My1story doll – Lil’ Riding Hood is a softie.  11.5 inches tall, this is a huggable, loveable squishy doll.  Perfect for bedtime!  Even the colors are soothing and adorable!

Bingo!

When I first read “I Love Cake” to my daughter, as I finished I said, “Sleepy?”.  She answered emphatically, “No!”.  I thought, uh oh, how can I review this as a good bedtime book if it made her clearly not sleepy?  “I want to hear it again!” she said.  Whew!  Good endorsement when she wants a story a second time!!  And she was asleep by the end of the second reading…. awwww….

You can only find My1story at amazon.com.   “I Love Cake” and “Jack and the Magic Beans” are the first two books of the My1story series.  Books and plush that go together are a personal favorite of mine.  I love when a child can hold a plush while listening to a story about that character.  Or use the plush to act out the story.  It enhances creativity and imagination.

If you are looking for a holiday gift,

I highly recommend My1Story for your child

or for any special child in your life!

    My daughter’s been having fun playing games on their website. She likes the Humpty character the best. I think all the characters are cute.

    This is a great site. They have so many fun and interactive things for children to do; from reading the books online to the videos and the games. Not only will they have fun but they will also learn valuable life lessons while doing so.
