Y’all, we did a thing! We published a book. A book your kiddos will love. 

The 'My Friends and I' book is a perfect little surprise for the upcoming First Day of School for your Preschooler, Elementary School or Middle School student and is also a great way to break the ice and get to know everybody in class!

The book captures memories of the young book owners and 39 friends, classmates, teachers, coaches, family members, or any other person in their lives.

Your child and their friends will answer questions like: What is your favorite food? What do you like to do in your free time? What songs do you like to listen to? What books do you like to read? What do you want to be when you grow up?

A picture box allows them to insert a picture of themselves or to draw a picture of their own.

We're super excited and are giving away 3 copies of the book and have 15% off promo code for all Live Grow Play Austin friends. Read on for details and a sneak peak of the book .
