I See Me! Personalized Children’s Book Review & Giveaway


I am super excited to share with you all my experience with I See Me! books.  Yes, I received My Very Own Pirate Tale for this particular review, but I have been a long time fan and owner of other I See Me! books for years.  Actually I have been a fan for over seven years!  It all started back when my first son was born- obviously over seven years ago!  At six months old he received My Very Own Name Storybook from his aunt and uncle.  As a first time mom I loved owning a book made especially for my son with his name.  Even at that early age I knew books would play an important role in his life and having a book with wonderful pictures of animals that spelled his particular name was special.  Obviously at six months old he was oblivious to all this, but as he became older he realized the book included his name and was made just for him.  I have enjoyed seeing the smile of surprise and delight on my children’s faces when they discover the book is about them.

Now all three of my son’s have their own version of the My Very Own Name Storybook.  And the company has a built in system to make sure that you don’t receive the same book twice.  Keeping the child’s name and birth date within their system (your privacy is safe) if you attempt to order the same book for that child, the system will alert you that one has already been made.  How awesome is that!

You might disagree with me as everyone has their favorite, but I think the My Very Own Name Storybook makes the best baby gift.  I love to give the gift of books- check!  And I love to make things personalized- check!  Have I gifted this book? Of course and also the My Own Fairy Tale Storybook.  Hmmm…this review is supposed to be about the Pirate tale however!  So let me show you a closer look at this great book!

Just like all I See Me! books the basic layout is the same.  Throughout all the books animals or fairies (it all depends on the particular book) provide a letter to spell the name of your child.  The animals start with the letter being provided. I have found the animal characters to be colorful and visually appealing.  Check out some samples from my son’s pirate book.

My four year old son loved this pirate tale.  The best part is that his name was the magic words needed to unlock the treasure.  Whenever I read this part it brings a huge smile to his face!

Check out this neat video below highlighting the book!  Little boys will be in heaven!

If you are looking for a unique gift for a birthday, christening, or almost any other kind of occassion you can think of, I highly recommend all of the books from I See Me!.  Check out the full selection of personalized books available. Or check out the video below with information regarding the Fairy Tale book.
