Our Very Important Preschooler
When we had J.B. we had no idea the impact it would have on our lives. His birth was so traumatic and we were told it could affect him down the line. At first he was developing on track but somewhere around 18 months he started to regress. Last year he was diagnosed with Autism and he’s also non-verbal so we started him with early intervention to help him build communication and social skills. Meet our very important preschooler, J.B. He’s changed our lives in so many ways and I know he’ll continue to change it each day.
JB starts his second year of school this year and he’s doing so well. Although he still can’t speak he is finding various ways to communicate with us and let us know what he’s learning. To help him celebrate and enjoy this school year we got him a very special personalized book that talks about all the things kids learn in Pre-School. I See Me sent us a copy of The Very Important Preschooler for review, any opinions expressed are my own.
This year J.B. will be learning a lot of things and his new book is a way of helping him understand some of what he will be learning. I love unique gifts like these because they make kids feel special. For J.B. it was a great way to show him some of what school would be like this year.
The Very Important Preschooler offers a variety of options for personalization, including a dedication from the gifter to the recipient.
The book does a great job going through the things a pre-schooler would do during school. My favorite part was just how many times we found his name in the story.
J.B. loved when we read the book to him at night and when we were on a page with his name he would point to the letters to get us to read them. Eventually we started asking him to find the letters in his name. So it ended up being a learning tool for him as well. Since he’s non-verbal that’s the only way we know what letters he knows.
