Review: I See Me! Books

jackson book 2

By Liz Boch

My son loves to “read” books. And by that I mean, play with and chew on books. But since his mother is such a bookworm and writer, our family makes a big deal out of reading time.

Jackson book, croppedThis is why I love the recent book we read by I See Me! Books. Instead of reading about Curious George or any other character, we got to read about my son Jack, since these books personalize the story to fit your child.

Log on to their website, simply load up some baby photos and choose from a large selection of themed books. In a few weeks, your doorstep is graced with a personalized book all about your child! The artwork is superb, reminiscent of Dr. Seuss, and the story teaches your child valuable lessons.

Our personalized children’s book focused on sports, and how important it is to try hard, play by the rules, eat right and be a gracious team player.

The only thing I would caution is that a child too young, like seven-month-old Jack, will try to eat the pages rather than read the book! But in a year or so, he will love seeing his smiling face beaming back at him.

I See Me! also offers personalized lunchboxes, puzzles, coloring books, placemats, stickers (think potty training, mamas) and growth charts.
