When Lela Grows Up

When it comes to parenting, raising a reader has always been at the top of mine and Austin's priority lists. In today's world of tablets and screentime, there is no shortage of information about how reading is beneficial for your child. More importantly, the magic of books was always something that I lost myself in as a child, and I want the same for Lela. So, when the opportunity to create a personalized story for Lela with Hooray Heroes came up, I couldn't get it ordered fast enough!
Thank you to Hooray Heroes for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own! 

I have always wanted to create a personalized story for Lela and was over the moon when I found Hooray Heroes books. Not only was I able to customize her name, but I was also able to customize her appearance, and interests. Austin and I always joke that Lela is going to be a Doctor-Lawyer-President when she grows up, so we had a lot of fun picking out her future careers. In the book, When Lela Grows Up, we were able to choose ten different future careers. We picked everything from a ballerina because she has sweet dance moves, to a veterinarian, because she loves dogs and of course doctor and president because we have big dreams!

We had so much fun personalizing Lela's story, but my favorite part was that I got to be in it too! I think it's so special that we can both share in this book for the many years to come. 
Hooray Heroes offers many personalized books that you can find here. They offer free shipping within the US and are graciously offering The Joyful Peach readers a 15% discount with code: PEACH15
I hope you enjoy their books as much as we do!

Cheers!
Mandy
