A Christmas gift they will keep forever – I See Me Personalized Books

*I received this book in exchange for this review.  All opinions are 100% my own and may differ from yours.*

One of my favorite things to have around us all of the time is books. I really love personalized books, especially when it’s one that can teach them things, like spelling their name. That is just what the book, “My Very Own Name” does. It spells their name, letter by letter, page by page. We won an I See Me book when Maggie was a baby and love reading it. This one is no different.

I See ME!  Personlized Books - My Very Own Name

From the very first page, this book is personalized, starting with the dedication page. Personalize it for your child, their date of birth, and whatever else you want it to say.

The pictures draw your children in from the first page. As soon as I turn the page, they are reaching to point out the animals on the page. Maggie even stops me to tell me {every time} that that is her sleeping in the bassinet in the picture. She gets so excited and it is so much fun!!!

My Very Own Name is does more than just teach them to spell their name, it tells a fun story of how the animals choose her name. It is such a fun story that we love to read together. As it spells out her name, there is an animal that starts with that letter. They can see the letter individually to reinforce the name of the letter. The best part – they spell out the first and last name of the child.

As you can see, Maggie and Charlie both get very excited as we read the book.

At the end of the story, there is a fun game you can play with your kids. The Animal Encyclopedia tells them a little about each of the animals. Then, we go back through the book and try to find a few each time we read it.


Did I mention the quality of the book and pages?  Much more durable than your average kids book and the glossy pages the kids will love.  The pages will stand up over time {don’t let that fool you into thinking I let Charlie touch it unsupervised, the kid is a destroyer}.  It’s a fun, easy read with rhyming phrasing to keep kids attention throughout the entire story.  With the gorgeous pictures, your kids will find so much to look at and comment on as you read the story with them.


When I say that we REALLY love this book, I am not exaggerating.  We are actually planning to buy 5 more I See Me books as gifts.  We had 5 babies born between our families this last year or so, starting with Charlie, and want to get each of those babies one of these books all their own.  It is that awesome!  Added bonus:  they are made here in Minnesota!
