Confession: whenever I see a rack of personalized objects, whether it’s the old school license plates, pencils or silly holiday ornaments, I still look for my name. Call it a diehard habit leftover from a little girl who rarely found her name on those racks. You see, even though my name is far from unusual, I’m not an Elizabeth or a Bethany; I’m just Beth, and it used to be rare to find. These days it seems to be available a little more often, and I still get a little squee of excitement when I find it, so I can only imagine what my childhood reaction would have been to my very own personalized book!
The books created by I See Me! integrate your child’s name into a variety of story options. For some books, you even have the option to put in other pertinent details, like a birth date, sibling’s name, grandparents or aunts and uncles. I only wish we had a name picked out for our little bun in the oven because I would have definitely picked up a copy of The Super, Incredible Big Brother for my two-year-old.
Husband and wife team, Maia and Allan Haag, created I See Me! books to help increase self-esteem in children. The books have won many awards from different parenting organizations, and it’s easy to see why. The books are nicely crafted with rich illustrations that jump from the page—each illustration was originally created from a hand-painted canvas. These books are sure to become treasured items in your child’s library.
WIN IT! I See Me! is giving away $50 gift certificates to FIVE lucky Project Nursery readers! You can pick out a book for that special child in your life just in time for the holidays (deadline for holiday shipping is December 12, 2011).
