When I See Me approached me to do a review on their personalized book, I was really excited. I am a huge advocate for spending time reading to your children on a daily basis. In our family part of the boys morning and bedtime routines is to spend time cuddled together reading as a family. So when this opportunity presented itself I just had to say YES!
We started by selecting a color for KC’s M is for Me personalized book, there were several to choose from including green, blue, orange, pink, yellow and turquoise. We also filled out other information including gender, name and a dedication to our son. We were then able to upload a photo of KC that would latter be added to the dedication page above our message.
When KC saw that the book had arrived in the mail he was really excited and couldn’t wait to sit down and read it together. Latter that night we read it again at bedtime (twice) and have read it every night for over a week! I can see how much KC loves this book and I know it will be a treasure for a very long time.
There are several things I really like about the M is for Me book, but my favorite is all the places you can find KC’s name. On one page his name appears on a banner and on another his first initial is found on a book bag, these are just two examples of the many throughout the book.
Each letter in the book represents a positive characteristic (“C is for Caring”, “P is for Patient”) that as parents we want out children to develop. There were three or four words in the book that I thought may be a little hard for my 3 and 5 year old sons, for example “V is for Versatile”. However, it gave us the opportunity to teach our sons new words and expand their vocabulary. Which I think is great!
The I See Me book itself was a hard bound book and had lots of colorful pictures. I thought the little foxes in this book were very cute and playfully drawn. The books have been designed with children ages birth to 12 years old in mind providing them opportunities to build vocabulary, learn to spell their name, and in general reinforce how special and unique they are.
The I See Me books goal is to help you celebrate the milestones in your child life in a unique way. With a mission to increase self-esteem in children through personalized books that celebrate the uniqueness of each child. After seeing the M is for Me book for myself it is no surprise that their books have won several awards including: Family Choice, Mom’s Choice, Creative Child, iParenting and more.
Along with the large selection of great books I See Me has to offer they have several other products available as well including: lunchboxes, puzzles, coloring books, placemats, stickers and growth charts.
I received a sample for review. All opinions are my own.
