I See Me! Personalized Children's Book

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated, however, are genuine and my own.



"I See Me!" Personalized Children's Books are a wonderful way to make any child feel special. I love them because they are nice and big, the pages are a strong, durable quality, the pictures are gorgeous, and the story lines are engaging. You get to choose a book theme that you like from their quality selection, and it (the whole story!) will be written around the letters of your child's first and last names. Because of that, each story is individual and unique!  I had a chance to review the "My Very Own Name" book pictured above.


My son has an unusual name, so getting things personalized for him makes him happy. The book I received, however, I had made for my nephew. Take a look at the page above and you can see how the letter 'U' was being portrayed in his name. The pages are colorful, the letters being added one by one adds to the suspense, and then when your child sees his/her name played out, that initial surprise, the first time they read it, is bound to bring a huge smile to his or her face.

Word of warning: Be ever so careful with your information on the order form. I was not careful enough and my book has my nephew's first name in the book twice (as his first and his last name). That is obviously not good, and I won't be giving that book to my nephew after all. We all make mistakes we had no clue as to how they happened from time to time, so learn from mine and be careful to check, and then re-check your information before you hit submit.

I honestly can highly recommend this book!! It is a most excellent concept, and is sure to become an instant favorite, and a book you will keep forever.

I See Me! also has a great line of other personalized products.

Some of the personalized lunch box selections offered.
These have a chalkboard mounted inside!
They also have these great personalized lunch boxes that have a chalkboard mounted on the inside so you can send notes to school with your child each day (I LOVE that concept!!).

Some of the personalized puzzles offered.
They have puzzles as seen above, and some really great gift sets, as shown below.

  4. I like the My Very Own Fairytale and the My Very Own Name. But these books are awesome. I'm totally using that Costco discount!

  5. I like it that you can have more personalized options nowadays. When I was growing up, I have a hard time finding my name on anything. It was always spelled without the H. Same with my daughter. We find a lot of Maria stuff, but no Mariah. We always just paint an H on whatever we buy lol.

    1. I don't remember anything like this until my last two kiddos...then creating personalized items became much easier. There's probably a direct correlation with the Internet there. I think things like this are great.

  29. I love this!! I don't have an unusual name but the spelling of it, Krystal, is not usually how it is spelled. Especially years ago when I was a kid. So my mother and I were always on the lookout for things with the correct spelling of my name. I remember I got a book like this as a kid and I loved it!
