Win a Personalized Book from I See Me!


I’m so pleased with myself because I already have some Christmas shopping done! And for part of that I have to thank the wonderful people at I See Me! They asked if I would review one of their personalized books for children and I jumped at the chance because I knew this would be a perfect gift for my nephew, who lives in a different state. I sent them my nephew’s first and last name, gender, birthdate, and the year in which the book would be given, and a beautiful copy of My Very Own Name showed up a short time later! It was even personalized inside with our own dedication. I know that my nephew and his parents are going to be thrilled with it.

My Very Own Name tells a very clever story about how various animals teamed up to string together the letters in the child’s name. It is so smoothly and brilliantly done that you would think the book had been originally written in exactly that way, with the child’s full name included! The illustrations are gorgeous, as is the hardcover outside of the book. It even arrived all wrapped up in a box and ribbon! (I chose to have it sent to me so I could review it, so I’ll mail it directly to my nephew as we get closer to Christmas. But you can have the book shipped directly to your recipient, if desired.)

And I See Me has several other books that you can personalize:

My Very Own Fairy Tale

In this enchanting personalized story, fairies bring letters one by one to provide clues about which girl they think should be chosen as their fairy princess. Each fairy also brings an adjective to describe the girl, such as fair, truthful, or smart. At the end, the fairies realize that they have all been describing the very same girl, and they crown her as their princess. The book teaches the child that her inner character traits are what make her a great princess or leader. This educational book also teaches the child how to spell her name, and it builds vocabulary skills. The Fairy Patch at the end is full of interesting facts about flowers and berries. She will cherish her very own fairy tale for life!

The World According to [Your Child]


The World According to [Your Child] is a personalized book that makes it easy to capture this precious stage in your child’s life. This stunning, 20-page professionally typeset hardcover book features the child’s own drawings and classic comments about his or her world. The kit includes interview questions to ask the child, such as what the child wants to be when he or she grows up, the child’s favorite things, and more. Color markers and drawing sheets are provided for the child to do 6 drawings, including a self-portrait. The child’s interview answers and drawings are then made into a beautifully printed book that’s ready for all-about-me storytime!

I received a sample of this book, and the quality is amazing. The child's own drawings and answers are seamlessly incorporated into each page. You've got to see it to believe it!

My Very Own ABCs

Featuring the animals from the storybook My Very Own Name, this personalized board book helps your child learn the ABCs. Perfectly proportioned for little hands, each book includes the child’s name, birth date and a dedication from the sender to make it a cherished keepsake! The book has 30 sturdy board pages, 4 of which are personalized to the child. A cuddly plush lamb accompanies each book as a gift set. The book’s convenient 5.5” x 7.5” size travels well in a diaper bag.

You and Me (Coming This Fall!)

I See Me has announced the addition of another personalized book to their line called You and Me. This would make a perfect Christmas gift for your child's grandparents! You and Me is a unique hardcover book that grandparents make to celebrate their special bond with their grandchild. It gives children a glimpse into their grandparents' lives when they were children through the present. It helps children to understand their roots and share in their grandparents' experiences through family photos and memories. One of my kids' grandmothers is retiring soon, and I think this would be a terrific project for her to work on for her grandchildren! I also received a sample of You and Me, and it's just as gorgeous as the other I See Me books!


At I See Me, they also have other beautiful and personalized products for your kids, such as wall art, a floor puzzle, plates, t-shirts and more! They also have great gift sets that combine their various products for easy gift-giving.
