Do you love reading books to your children? Have you ever had a personalized book made for them? For this review I received one personalized book for my great grandson. I picked out My Very Merry Christmas Board Book. This is an adorable book, you can even take a tour of the book to see what it looks like inside! This would be a great gift for your children, especially with it being personalized. They will love seeing their name on the front cover and all through the book. I would certainly recommend a book like this for every child, it encourages them to want to read it for themselves.
About My Very Merry Christmas Board BookMy Very Merry Christmas is an adorable personalized board book with forest animals that come together to put on a very merry Christmas for your child. This keepsake book has a hard cover and durable board pages with charming illustrations of Goose, Chipmunk and other furry friends who deliver a note about your child to Santa. At the end of this delightful story, the animals circle the tree that they have adorned with your child's name spelled out on the ornaments.
As an added personal touch, this beautifully illustrated book includes a personalized cover and a printed dedication from the sender. Made in the USA, this storybook is written by award-winning author Jennifer Dewing and illustrated by Mati Rose McDonough.
When ordering, they will ask you whether the book is being given to the child for his or her first Christmas.
- If you answer "no," the title of your child's book will be "[Child's First Name's] Very Merry Christmas."
- If you answer "yes," they will add the word "First" into the title of the book so that it reads, "[Child's First Name's] Very Merry First Christmas." They will also change the text in the story to refer to the fact that it is the child's very first Christmas. Take a virtual tour of the book with "first" Christmas on the cover and throughout the book.
About I See Me! Inc.They opened for business in May of 2000, after a year of active product development. Maia and Allan received a personalized book as a gift for their first son in 1998. While they loved the fact that it was personalized, they thought that the illustrations could have been much better and the story more customized to the child. Thus I See Me! was born.
Allan, who is a graphic designer and Maia developed the first book My Very Own Name as a team. Their goal was to produce an educational book that would teach young children how to recognize letters and spell their names. After Maia developed the concept and wrote the book, they brainstormed together to develop the characters in the book. Allan found and hired the illustrator, and designed the book, while Maia wrote the business plan.
They are pleased to say their books have become popular among celebrities including Courteney Cox, Brooke Shields and Jessica Alba.
Their mission is to increase self esteem in children through personalized books that celebrate the uniqueness of each child. The goal of their books is to show each child how absolutely unique and special he or she is, to teach the child how to spell his or her name, and to build vocabulary skills.
