When I was asked to review a personalized book from I SEE ME! I decided to gift it to my two nephews Fabrizio and Stefano. I was asked to send in a photo of both of them and some details, such as their names, skin tone, hair color and gender. A week later the book was delivered by courier to my doorstep.
My 13 year-old son was the first to open the package and he was both surprised and elated to see it. He thought it was cool and he couldn't wait for us to give it to his cousins. When we presented the book to my nephews, they were thrilled that it featured them in it! The older one who is now able to read, was surprised and delighted to see himself and his brother and their names in the book. The look on his face was priceless.
The book opens to a first page that includes my nephews' photos with the statement that this book was made especially for them. It also includes my dedication to them and the year, which I thought was smart.
Every page thereafter shows the two brothers together comparing them to popular duos like peanut butter and jelly, hello and goodbye, and happy and sad. Also, I noticed that every page shows their names. The illustrations are colorful, filling every page spread with activities that children do, such as going on a picnic, drawing, playing, and even fighting, making this a book young children can relate to.
In our family, books are a daily part of our lives and I used to read to my kids every night when they were younger. Gifting a book with your kids in it, whether it's sibling, cousins or best friends, is a unique and refreshing idea, seeing that we live in such a technologically-drenched world. It's a lasting way to boost children's self confidence and to make them feel how much they are loved. Such a book becomes a special keepsake that creates memorable moments in a child's life. What a wonderful gift idea!

So glad to know someone is still doing this. Our now 46-year old son received personalized books from a dear cousin of mine, now deceased. They were treasured reads, believe me!ReplyDelete
