Peanuts for the next generation (review + giveaway)

I've written about my love for Put Me in The Story before (these were our first two books, and these were our second two books), because they are honestly just so great. 

I've bought these personalized books (without being paid or perked) as gifts for friends' kids, and they're always a hit because who DOESN'T like to see their name (or their kid's name) in a BOOK? It's the cutest! 

I've also told numerous grandparents about the site when they've complained about not knowing what to buy for their little grandchildren. because "they already have SO MANY TOYS." Yep, I get it, mother-in-law-of-my-neighbour. 

Put Me in The Story reached out a few weeks ago and asked if I wanted to review their new Peanuts personalized stories. Um, yes please! I picked My First Peanuts: 123 – A Counting Adventure for our three-year-old daughter, since she's understanding more about numbers these days.

I also picked My First Peanuts: ABC – An Alphabet Adventure for our five-year-old son. He's on the high end of the age range for this book, but he's very into spelling and attempting to read these days, so I knew he'd enjoy sounding out the words. 

(Side note: the other day he came home from school and said "Pumpkins can roll! R-O-L-L." I just about died from pride, and now of course I quiz him every day about how to spell 'roll.' It's very exciting.)

Back to the books, which arrived on the Purolator truck EXACTLY as I was writing this post so it was quite perfect ...


There was a lot of squealing as the kids recognized their names on the covers!


I love that we can customize the dedication for each of them and include a recent photo. It's thigns like this that will make the book so special to look back on when the kids are older. 


Our kids didn't grow up with Charlie Brown and the crew like I did, so it's fun to be able to introduce them to the characters before we see The Peanuts Movie in a couple of weeks. Maybe this will be the year we put on It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! 

(Can you believe that movie came out in 1996, when I was ... oh God, I was 13. I'm officially a million years old. Anyway. Moving on.)


When I was taking this picture of C, I told her the book would help her with counting 1-10. She pointed to the 1-2-3 on the cover and said "One ... Two ... Ten!" Um, we have some work to do!

So ... who likes a deal?

From today through Halloween (this Saturday), use the code "SNOOPY" to get $10 off any personalized Peanuts book -- taking the price down to $19.99.
