What We’re Loving: Personalized Pet Book Helps Shelter Pets

IMG_0758 Buy the Book – 100% of Proceeds Help Shelter Pets!

Following her passion as a lover of kids and animals, Jan Krystkowiak wondered how she could combine literacy, kids and pets – and found her answer with WhereInTheWorldBooks.com – personalized pet books that allow you to integrate your dog or cat’s breed, name and photo into the story! Jan came up with the idea after reading studies on personalization which indicated that reading and vocabulary improve substantially when children read materials with their name embedded in them. 

A supercharged go-getter with five kids and three dogs, Jan more than holds down the domestic fort while her husband, New Jersey Nets assistant NBA coach Larry Krystkowiak, is away. In fact, in January 2010, shortly after the earthquake in Haiti, Jan Krystkowiak and friends shipped 20,000 pounds of clothes, teddy bears, soccer balls and other goods to the devastated country and then traveled to Haiti where they spent 10 days helping out where they could.

Knowing how much my 4 year old nephew, Colton, loves his Yellow Lab, Zoe, I ordered a personalized book from Where in the World books and now have a darling book featuring not only my nephew’s name throughout the book, but also his furry pal Zoe!  It even features a spot in the front of the book where I was able to write a personalized dedication and upload a photo of Zoe.
