Twigtale: Personalized Stories. Personalized Growth.

Full disclosure: Twigtale is a company that I am affilated with as an expert advisor and author. I met the founders several years ago through Babygroup with their children. They ultimately came to me with the idea to enable parents everywhere to tap into expert language to help children through transitions and challenging situations with these revolutionary personalized books. I had been encouraging parents for years to make a story book to help their child through a transition, so the idea that a parent could implement the process more easily online with customizable narrations already created was a wonderful union of resources to offer parents.

Stories that communicate information around experiences, along with illustration, can be a powerful visual tool that improves understanding and acceptance. As Twigtale books utilize personalized narration AND photos, the story becomes even more engaging, relevant fun, and effective for a young child. The information shared can inspire learning, enhance understanding, and provide a sense of safety and reassurance. Stories can help children with the challenging areas of growing, such as coping with transitions and change, facing specific situations such as a new sibling, and dealing with their emotions.
