A star is born
There are few things more enthralling to a child than the sight of his own face. (Relax, it’s not narcissistic; it’s totally natural and developmentally appropriate.) The photo supersite Shutterfly.com lets you encourage healthy egotism with its CenterStage collection of books that cast your toddler in the starring role. Your part couldn’t be simpler: Just upload a favorite headshot and some basic details (such as birthday and hometown) that will be woven into the story, and Shutterfly puts it all together in a beautiful, full-color hardbound book. Help your child develop a lifelong love of reading with a personalized story featuring him alongside popular characters such as Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob SquarePants, the Sesame Street gang and more. (You can customize posters and puzzles, too.) From $39.99 at shutterfly.com.
