NEW BOOK ALERT ๐Ÿšจ : 
We mark the UAE Month of Reading by introducing the โ€˜READING JOURNALโ€™  commissioned to us by Maktaba @dctabudhabi ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“–
๐Ÿ“•
๐Ÿ“—
๐Ÿ“˜
Itโ€™s an interactive bi-lingual journal created to encourage children to have READING GOALS. Instead of merely reading, a child can RATE and REVIEW each book. Almost like taking reading one step further and promoting discussions and understandings around each book.
๐Ÿ“™
๐Ÿ“’
๐Ÿ“•
Whatโ€™s more? We have added thought provoking messages along with engaging stickers at the end as a reward!  The journey of making the journal has been a huge learning for us as we hope to create a community of HAPPY READERS! ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ–‹#uaereadingmonth2019 @dctabudhabi @visitabudhabi

โญ๏ธ Over the last week we have been busy creating memories for the worldโ€™s leading childrenโ€™s skin care brand. Sadly, we canโ€™t reveal names or what the execution was but we are humbled that they chose us to make memories for the kids associated with them. .

As parents, we often struggle with teaching our kids how to lose gracefully. Sometimes our kids are so disappointed at coming second or (God forbid ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜‚) third, that they miss out on truly enjoying the sport. In our book โ€˜The Championโ€™ ๐Ÿ† we teach that winning and losing are both a part of the game. To view and order this motivating book log onto:
