Papersalt Review

I love to discover unique, creative products that are able to make an impact on my family, especially my children. Papersalt™ has a wide selection of inspirational style books for boys, girls and teens between the ages of 4 to 18. Featuring a wide range of interesting topics such as growing up, self-esteem, respect, family values and more there are lots of wonderful ideas to inspire kids of all ages.

I have three children ages 5, 6 and 8 and there were many appealing book titles that are entertaining and educational for them at Papersalt™ including Being a Boy, Being a Girl, Voting & the U.S. Government and My USA!

Papersalt Review

The two books Being a Boy and Being a Girl highlight the “things that mom wants you to remember”. Each of these books is designed to be a living book so the child can incorporate it into their lives by writing in it and making notes of the things they most relate too as they read it over and over again. Fans of the Charlotte Mason style of learning are sure to really appreciate these books. In Being a Boy, my eldest son who recently turned eight years old enjoys reading the passages to his little brother. While I especially enjoy the wise encouragement to “Tell your mom that you love her….every time you see her” and “You have to take a bath or shower-like it or not”, Adam and his brother informed me that they most related to “Help someone whenever you can” and “There isn’t anything that you could do to make your parents stop loving you.” My six year old daughter and I enjoy bonding together in the evening by reading a few pages and her favorite is, “You are beautiful. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise”. What I like most is that these are books that can be read now with notes or thoughts added to the pages and then the child can revisit it later in life and see how they thoughts or ideations may have changed or been impacted by life experiences.

Papersalt Review

Two areas that I wish had been taught more specifically when I was in school including learning about the United States and how our government works. I was particularly impressed with two titles from Papersalt™ including Voting & the US Government and My USA. In the first book, my children are learning about how our government works in a clear, concise and easy to understand manner with areas highlighted and discussed regarding the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the branches of government and how it functions. I will confess that my husband and I have been baffled for years about how the Electoral College works but we both learned a lesson along with our kids in this book. My USA is like taking a road trip cross country to visit all 50 states with a variety of fun, interesting facts. These are two books that I will be using in class with my children for years to come……..

Overall, I am very impressed with the content of the four books I read with my children. My husband has been in the printing industry as an offset machine press operator for over 24 years and he said that the printing was top notch and he was very pleased that these books are printed in the United States.

You are invited to visit Papersalt™ to browse the entire selection of books, lovely journals and other inspirational items, games and more. The books are available for purchase for $12.95-$16.95 each and journals are $18.75, any of which would make excellent memorable gift ideas for a special child in your life.
