Personalized Books Make a Top Gift During Back-to-School Season

Finding the right gift for a child is often a challenge, even when you know the child fairly well. One gift that has a unique and guaranteed appeal is a personalized book. When you order one of these personalized books from Chronicle Books , you never have to worry about the gift’s relevance or the possibility of the child already owning the same item. During the start of the new school year, when parents are focused on education and children simply want a break from schoolwork, these books can make especially timely gifts. A Unique, Unforgettable Book Like many people, you may think of books that only mention the child’s name once or twice in passing when you think of personalized books. Fortunately, it’s easy to find books that are much more tailored through Chronicle Books. Some books begin with a special photograph or a personalized dedication message from you to the child. Other books, such as Speedster, leave space for photos of the child to be added into the illustrations. If yo

Producer, Gary Donatelli,   was there at the private screening and we had a nice conversation with him about the film. He also spoke to the audience after the film. See the clip  here . The media team was also at the screening and we had a nice talk with them as well. You never know who you'll meet at movie screenings, so this was a nice surprise!  23 Blast is one of those movies you take to bed with you, it's in your thoughts for days and days. A great cast of actors, a school setting, family and friends. Well,  one of the football players, Travis Freeman  develops an eye infection which leads to his sight being gone. Just about overnight his sight is lost. Blind. Shut your eyes for a few minutes. Think what it would be like to never

Cook publishing.  Retails for $15.99 us Available October 2014 The Hardest Peace is about Kara's life, her husband, her children, and herself. It's about her relationship with God, life, and yes, Cancer. It's about finding peace. Peace is every day, Every moment, everything, everywhere, and being thankful to God you have those moments. This afternoon, I read the book all at once, I couldn't put it down. I got to the end there is a letter from her and one from her husband, and one to her children. I'll read it soon, but right now I have to get the chicken out of the oven. Meals should be more than food. I read that in this book.
