I See Me! Books: The World According To Me Personalized Book Review & Giveaway #ISeeMeBooks @ISeeMe_Maia


When Josiah was born, I started reading books to him and, 7 years later, our bookshelves are overflowing with children's books. With two children, we enjoy having a variety of books for them to choose and have a reading time every night before bedtime. Out of all their books, our favorites are the personalized books. My boys get such a kick out of seeing their names in a book, which not only interests them, but encourages them to read. I See Me! Books have such a great variety of personalized books and personalized gifts for children.

I See Me! was created by a mom and dad who sought for quality personalized books for their son. They noticed most customized books failed to impress and wanted to create something that would "increase self esteem in children" and "celebrate the uniqueness of each child". Each books is designed to show each and every child how unique and special they are, from teaching them how to spell their name to learning how to read. It's so important to interest children in reading and I agree that this is such a great way to get them reading. Josiah, my oldest, had a rough start with phonics and learning to read. We practiced with book after book, but not until we brought out personalized books was he truly interested and given the incentive needed to keep trying.
For our holiday guide this year, we decided to review a different book offered by I See Me! called The World According To Me. Our little boys are growing up so quickly and we are so busy that I don't have the time I once did for making scrapbooks and photo books. This is where The World According To Me comes in and is such a wonderful idea for children and parents alike.

The World According To Me is a personalized book capturing a moment in time in your child's life that will be forever remembered. It is a 20-page professional hardcover book featuring the child's own drawings and opinions about his/her world. Josiah is now 6 years old and began first grade this year. He is growing and changing every single day and I want to remember every minute of his journey. We couldn't wait to receive our kit and, when we did, I got to work helping Josiah create his book.
The kit comes with everything needed to complete your book, including markers and  interview questions. I sat down with Josiah on multiple occasions to ask him questions about life, such as who he loves, who are his close friends and what he wants to be when he grows up. The answers children come up with are completely priceless. You never know what they are going to say! Josiah told me he wanted to be a knight, but not anymore because the armor doesn't work well. Then he told me he loves his Pop because he is so silly and makes him laugh.

Then Josiah used the markers included in the kit to draw a portrait of our family, a self-portrait and some other of his own unique creations. When finished with everything, we sealed up the drawings and answered questions in the prepaid envelope and sent it on its way. We are still waiting on it to return, but it only takes about 3-4 weeks to process and return. I can't wait to see Josiah's special book.

I think this is such a great idea for a keepsake and something I would like to do every year for our boys. This would be a perfect way to remember the special moments with the boys and how much they grow through the months and years. We'll be writing another post once ours is received so you can see just how great it looks.

Wouldn't you love to make one of your own personalized The World According To Me books?
