Broward County , FL – My Heritage Book , by South Florida  author Deanna Bufo Novak, is getting recognized!  This extraordinary children's book has been featured in several local and national media outlets, being billed as an excellent gift for children – one that is both fun and educational.

Novak's most recent appearance was on WTVJ-NBC's morning show SOUTH FLORIDA TODAY.  NBC Anchor Trina Robinson commented on the unique personalized book: “Deanna's book takes families on a wonderful journey into their pasts, while exploring their origins.  It's a true gift to genealogy that should be in every home, so young people can find out truly who they are and where they came from, while bonding with those they love.”

“This book is truly unique and I am excited so many people not only want to learn about it, but are embracing it wholeheartedly,” said Novak. “Learning about heritage not only helps preserve the past, but helps prepare children for the cultural diversity that will surround them in the future.”

Children can learn about the countries from which their ancestors came and some of the traditions they brought to America in My Heritage Book . Each book is made to order and can combine up to four countries. Currently, there are approximately thirty-seven countries available, with more on the way. Each country has exciting and educational topics which include geography, food, language, music, landmarks, and traditions, along with beautiful illustrations. In addition, each book contains a letter to the child from the person(s) purchasing the book, the child's name throughout, and space for the child to fill in his/her own family's traditions and family tree. All of these features make My Heritage Book a truly unique and wonderful keepsake for each child.
