Kids become authors at tikatok.com

With the summer's scorching temps and pesky thunderstorms in full swing, you may not be eager to venture outside with your babe.

Luckily, tikatok.com offers one solution to your indoor inertia. Created by two mothers, the innovative website lets little ones make their very own customized and personalized picture books. Interactive story templates, or "StorySparks" help kids begin the writing process; completed books are available in hard- or softback copy. Users can also read books by kids from all over the country, share their own creations and collaborate with other mini authors within the Tikatok community.

Some of the tomes are hilarious and some are poignant, but each one is sweetly unique.

To get literary with your little one, visit tikatok.com.
