Who Loves Me? Personalized Book

who-loves-me-bookIf you’re looking for a gift that is more meaningful than a new dress and more lasting than a plastic egg full of jelly beans, we recommend the personalized book, Who Loves Me?, by I See Me! This colorful and thoughtful read includes the name of your child in the title, for example, “Who Loves Emily”.

Upload a picture of your child to be displayed on a dedication page along with their full name, and choose up to 6 names of those who love your child best to be incorporated into the story.  Each of these names is featured on a page spread along with a lyrical rhyme of that emphasizes the depth of their love.  For example – and this is a paraphrase – ” Mama loves you more than the mountains and more than the streams…”.  The sentiments are nature based and accompanied by a collage-style illustration that reminded me of Eric Carl.  Think colorful hand-cut painted papers that are layered to create vibrant images.

Product Review and Giveaway: I See Me personalized children’s book

The personalized I See Me book my five-year-old, Katie, received recently entitled ‘Katie Can Change The World’ might be one of the most delightful things I’ve ever seen. Katie has asked to read this book every other day since she received it two months ago. She loves searching for her name throughout the book and pointing out her favorite details on each page. Maybe it’s the beautiful and endearing illustrations or maybe it’s the message (spread loving kindness as far as you can), but somehow I haven’t grown tired of this book yet either.  i-can-change-the-world-personalized-book-4

I was amazed at the large assortment of personalized items available for purchase on the I See Me website. Besides books of all types (for babies, toddlers, big sisters and brothers, etc.,) I See Me offers personalized placemats, growth charts, stickers, even lunch boxes. You can choose an item based on a theme (fairies, dinosaurs, farm, etc.,), holiday, age or gender. Or just do what I did and spend way too much time ogling each and every beautiful item and planning out gifts for nieces, nephews and my friend’s kids for the next 5 years.
