Are you familiar with the company I See Me! Personalized Children's Books? They put your child squarely in the middle of the action by adding them to interesting picture books. Instead of being a passive observer, the children become active participants in the story.
They have a number of fun personalized books and other products, including:
- My Very Own Fairy Tale Storybook (I know an almost four year old who would LOVE one for her birthday.)
- My Very Own Pirate Tale
- The Very Important Preschooler (As well as a number of other back to school items. I especially love their personalized lunchboxes with interior chalkboard for notes to your child!)
- And, of course, their classic My Very Own Storybook
My kids loved seeing their name in the book and going on an adventure (a magic carpet ride!) meeting other children around the world and receiving "gifts" special to their cultures. Daphne received coral beads from a girl named Nosa in Nigeria and a woven blanket from a boy named Juan in Ecuador.
Their names appeared several times in the books and the countries they visited were based on the letters of their names, so each child's book was different (which thrilled them, of course).
Maia Evelyn went to: Mexico, Australia, Israel, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Venezuala, Egypt, Latvia, Yunnan (China), and Nigeria.
Daphne Jean went to: Denmark, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Hungary, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Jordan, Ecuador, Albania, and New Zealand.
One of the book's pages features a passport stamped with the countries they visited and there is a world map at the end highlighting the countries visited. Very neat!
When you order a book, you tell them the child's name and birthdate and specify an inscription so that they can create a personalized book just for him or her. Definitely a unique gift!
