My Very Own Name - A Personalized Children's Book From I See Me! - Book Review

Reading is so important in our house!  We read Emma a bedtime story almost every single night.  When I was pregnant with Emma, my husband felt a little goofy talking to my belly.  So he decided that instead of just talking to my belly, he would read baby a bedtime story every night.  Some nights he even read her two stories.  And after Emma was born, the tradition continued and she loves snuggling up with her daddy before bed with her book.

There are so many great books out there for children, but I never knew that you could personalize some of them!  When I was contacted by the folks at I See Me! to review one of their personalized children's books, I was so excited!  

I See Me! sent us a book called My Very Own Name
 It is now one of our favorite books!

I See Me! allows you to choose a book from a variety of stories and titles and personalize the book for your child's name.  In My Very Own Name, all of the animals in the animal kingdom are celebrating the birth of a baby and the animals decide that they need to choose the perfect name.  In the story, the eagle insists that they must use the letter "E"!

The monkey of course wants to use the letter "M" and so on.  

The animals spell out your child's name in the book in order to give the baby her very own name.  You can choose to do just a first name or a first and last name.   Its wonderful!  The story is so creative and the illustrations are just beautiful.  The colors are vibrant and really grab her attention.   


Emma loves it when her daddy reads her My Very Own Name!

  I See Me! books allow you to even add an extra special touch by adding a printed dedication in the front of the book.  This is such a great gift idea for a new baby, for Christmas gifts, godchildren, birthdays, you name it.   The gift giving season will be here in no time!  It is such a special keepsake that you and your baby can cherish.  I'm very big on keepsakes and saving things that maybe someday, Emma can pass along to her babies.  This is definitely something she can share with her little ones someday!

  I See Me! also offers personalized board books for babies, coloring books, placemats, puzzles, lunchboxes and gift sets.  All the people at I See Me are so great to work with.  You'll get great customer service if you have any questions!  You can also LIKE I See Me! on Facebook, follow them on Pinterest, subscribe on Youtube and follow their blog!

  17. I love personalized children's books. I remember a fun book my parents gave my brother and I.  They were personalized with our own names but spelled backwards.  So my character was a giraffe named 'Kerred'.  I thought that was so cool.  My brother's book had a lion named 'Yeldarb'.  I still like to call him that every now and again...and he's 47.

  18. I found some of the best Baby names this website is dedicated for.
