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.

I like Personalized Pirate Bandana. I never knew they sold anything, but books. Cool!

Pat Hatt said...

I see me, cool indeed

Sandee said...

Too cool. And yes on the name thing. Got to be careful about so many things today.

Have a terrific day. :)

Masshole Mommy said...

I love anything personalized, so I definitely want to order one for each of the boys for Christmas.

Melissa Swedoski said...

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!

Theresa said...

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.

Caitlin McClure said...

I love the Hello World! Personalized Gift Set

J said...

I have seen these books and they are great. It really makes a child feel special to have such a "big deal" made out of his/her name!

Susan Kane said...

What a delightful idea! I will head there immediately!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Sounds like a neat idea for a book! Too bad yours got messed up. Live and learn, right? :)

Manzanita said...

A good one to go for the little ones in your life.

Lynn Huntley said...

This would be a wonderful gift for my Grandchildren~ My grandson's name is spelled differently and my grand-daughter's name is Willow. This would make a great gift:) Sorry to hear you had a problem, but thanks for recommending to check and re-check~Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines

Self Sagacity said...

Oh how cute! This would be a great gift for sure.

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I like their very Merry Christmas book.

Julie Maloney said...

The "Who Loves Me?" looked adorable (mainly caught my eye because the example name is Jacob, my older boys name). My kids had personalized book once and LOVED it!

Courtney Gillard said...

Those lunch boxes are so cool. Remember the old ones we had? I had a Wonder Woman one, and a Holly Hobby one. I really like the ideas they have as products.

mail4rosey said...

Terrific day to you too!

mail4rosey said...

Every once in a blue moon my name would turn up somewhere.

mail4rosey said...

Or 'you made your bed, now lie in it.' One of my gram's faves. :)

One more day until Feathered Friend Friday, woot!!

mail4rosey said...

I'm loving that chalk board on the top of the lunchbox. :)

mail4rosey said...

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.

mail4rosey said...

Holly Hobby here too, with a metal hook to hold the thermos in place. ;)

I like the pirate tale book.

mel said...

CouponCafe said...

I love the idea of creating a personalized storybook! Who Love's Me is an adorable way to add friends and family to a child's bedtime story:-)
Have a Great Weekend!

bloggermomma said...

I love their products. My son has a unique name so getting him a book featuring his name would be so amazing!

cchaykin said...

These product are wonderful! I had my son bring his in for his book in Kindergarten and all the kids were excited to see his full name in a book. I love I See Me!

Jessica B. said...

I like the Snuggle Bunny book. jj250@aol.com

amy mcdonald said...

What amazing books ect. I think this is a wonderful product both my girls would love!

MikiHope said...

I love the premis of this book--giving children a "good" view of themselves. I know of no child that does not like his/her name in print-and it does keep them more focused.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

Oh my I love it - I have such a 'thing' for everything personalised I think there is something wonderful about it x

Ali Haider said...

Books 're worth reading.I See Me! Personalized Children's Book

Jennifer H. said...

I love the lunch boxes. So different than what most kids would have at school. Cool!

Hint Mama said...

A personalized book is a good present idea for a 2nd, 3rd or 4th baby...It should be added to this list I put together: http://hintmama.com/2013/09/27/todays-hint-4-good-baby-gift-ideas-for-the-2nd-3rd-4th-baby/

Growing Up Madison said...

I love their lunch boxes and I also love their book. Madison has their coloring book, placemat and a personalized book she got this year from I see Me but I think the lunch box would be great for my son. :)

Katherine Bartlett said...

I reviewed a book for them two years ago and loved it!

krystal kesson said...

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!

Pam said...

Personalized books are such a treasure. My kids all have one of these and they are keepsakes.

Nicole Adkisson said...

Personalized books are so great!

kristenione said...

This book is so neat! I would love to have this for my son. I also love the lunch box with the little chalkboard. That is such a cute idea. I am going to check out the website for Christmas ideas. We're really getting into all kinds of books now and I think something personalized would be really exciting for kids.

Unknown said...

Masshole Mommy said...

I think this is such a cool idea. I mean, who doesn't like something with their name on it?

HungryLittleGirl said...

This is such a lovely Christmas gift idea! Honestly I would even want one for myself and I am not a child :)

Anita Breeze said...

I really love the whole idea of personalized items! For young kids it is important to encourage books and reading at a young age, so this is a great way to go.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

I really love these personalized books because kids love them and they really get kids wanting to read and to see their names in the text. Anytime that we can get kids excited about reading, it's a good thing. It helps to promote literacy from a young age.

Melanie said...

I really really love the I See Me products, they are always high quality and the pictures in the books are amazing; my kids love the personalization as well..Thanks for sharing, will have to check them out for Christmas again, it's a tradition in our home...
