names and faces near and far...

Names and Faces Book

We love living on the West Coast. But the downside is not getting to see our family on the East Coast as much as we would like. Bob and I make sure to have weekly video chats with our parents so they can interact with their grandchildren regularly. And, as two-year-old Coco is growing her vocabulary and learning more words every day, we love teaching her in ways that are applicable to her life...and to her family.


So we recently made this cute book for Coco from Pinhole Press because she loves the one we made for Ruby a few years ago. It's called a Mini Book of Names and Faces, and each page shows Coco with a member of her family! Since our kids call their grandparents by their Thai and Korean names, we created the book to match. And of course, we had to include Max the cat ;). Our kids love seeing themselves in a book, and it's a fun way for them to see familiar faces of those they love who live far away. 

With the holidays coming up, this would be such a special gift for a little one in your life. Exclusively for Oh Joy! readers, Pinhole Press is offering 15% off all kids products (and they have seven brand new gifts!) now through November 13th. Use code OHJOY at checkout.
