Personalized Children’s Books!
It is an exciting time at the Momma Bacon’s house. Our oldest daughter is reading. Words are starting to make sense to her and she is sounding out words she doesn’t understand. We have read books to her since she came home from the NICU and for her to be able to read an ENTIRE page of an Early Reader book to me is sooooooo awesome. As someone who reads and reviews children’s books on a daily basis, I have been waiting for this moment where my joy of reading is passed on to my girls and it is happening. Being proud is probably an understatement. Reading for me has been a major passion in my life and has opened so many doors for me. Reading is the gateway to higher education and while I try to not let my excitement get carried away, we find ourselves reading book after book because we enjoy reading together.
I love to get my daughter’s books they will love to read, material they find enjoyable, and books that will last year after year. I wanted to find a way to commemorate this very important year in my Kinder’s life and I had a moment of brilliance where I thought donating a book to her classroom that reflects all the important things they are learning would be a wonderful idea. How cute is that? We continue to enjoy all of our personalized books we have added to our collection over the years and our absolute favorites are from I See Me! books. I checked out their collection and thought the book, 1-2-3 Blast Off With Me could be personalized to her class and I, luckily, was right.
In I See Me!’s book, 1-2-3 Blast Off With Me, it talks about the joys of learning letters, numbers, colors and shapes and celebrates our children’s learning. In this out-of-this-world book, it is illustrated and personalized with your child’s name and photo throughout the book. I was able to replace the name option with her ‘Kindergarten Class’ and this book is now personalized for her entire classroom. So cool. This durable board book reflects and praises kids for everything they are absorbing in this first year of primary school and Brooke just loves it.
- Child’s First Name
- Child’s Middle Name (Optional)
- Child’s Last Name
- Child’s Gender
- Child’s birth month
- Child’s day of birth
- Child’s year of birth
- Year book will be given
- Keepsake Gift Box & Bow
You can also upload your child’s (or children’s) picture to be included in the book, which makes it so much more fun. I just replaced her class instead of a first name on the personalization page and included a dedication and – bam! – instant book dedicated to an entire classroom. If you want to do something like that, you can easily personalize your book and preview it on the I See Me! website to make sure all the words make sense. I actually had to try several name options before I found what made sense that the book was for a classroom instead of to an individual child. I am sure you can think of a few unique ways to personalize your own book! It is simple, it is fun, and it creates lasting memories in a wonderful board book that you and your child can enjoy for years.
Have fun and enjoy reading with your child. The years fly by fast and before you know it your child is reading back to you. I hope that my kids will continue their love of reading into their adulthood, and if they choose, to their own kids. I am still pinching myself that Brooke is reading words and sentences back to me and I look forward to having little Brie do the same thing in a few years. We have enjoyed having the I See Me! books in our personal library and it has been fun sharing this love with her entire class.
