Personalised Success Stories
Success Stories are personalisable children’s books. Engage children in a fun and creative way while addressing emotional development, social skills, safety skills, behavioural skills, communication skills, safety skills and daily living skills. Our collection of printable books focuses on character development through topics such as sharing, meeting people, and managing anger. These children’s books provide clear action-oriented strategies and help children identify with the lessons through the personalisation. Customise the illustrations to the child’s appearance and method of communication (words, sign language, picture exchange communication system (PECS), and augmentative communication device). Alter the text to personalise the story’s content. Unlimited profiles can be created to use Success Stories with every child in your family or classroom. Save your profiles to create additional books without re-entering all new information. Print as often as you like to create books for home and school. Story subscriptions last for one year.
