More than one child?

No problem! Select the picture add-on ($10.00) for grammatical/contextual accuracy

Pictures in the book:

Introducing the PICTURE ADDITION, creating a wonderful keepsake within this keepsake book. The multi-headed monster with picture faces (shown below) is needed for grammatical and logical correctness when more than one child is read to at the same time.  (Single-headed monsters are also available but are not necessary.)

Here are examples of the last page WITHOUT and WITH a picture. On the last page, the narrating monster figures out who the child is based on the child's responses throughout the book:

Example of Two-headed monster.
Example of Three-headed monster.

Instructions for selecting a photo will be sent via email upon purchase.

Questions and answers:

Q: What kind of pictures do I provide:
A: Any well-lit picture from a smart phone will be fine. Please do not send pictures with hats, shadows or bright spots on faces. Please don't send class pictures, in which the face is a very small part of the original picture. Please send a full resolution photo (not zoomed in). If there are any questions about the photo quality please contact us.

Q: How long does it take?
A: Production of all books, with or without pictures, is running about 4 to 7 days until shipment. If you have a specific time-constraint, call us and someone will help you.

Q: What if I have more questions?
A: Please feel free contact us, with anyother questions, by phone, e-mail, text-message, carrier pigeon, smoke signal, or cans connected by string. We are currently testing a telepathic system but we have no thoughts as to when that will be working.
