Personalized books for children are always a fantastic gift idea. You’ll be able to find many that will include your child’s name or perhaps a cartoon illustration of your child. But I’ve never come across one as unique as the selection I stumbled upon at Your Picture Book.com.
Your Picture Book.com, simply asks for a photo of your child sitting or standing and then incorporates the photo into one of three books available:
- Moon Dirt
- Can Count
- Noah’s Ark
I was given the opportunity to review my very own personalized book and went with the Noah’s Ark story. I was simply asked to send in a high resolution photo of my daughter sitting or standing because there are two choice of book layouts to choose from. I was asked my daughter’s name so they could add it into the story. I then also included up to 4 lines of what I wanted to say in the dedication for the title page.
I received my personalized book a few days go and was going to save it and give it to my daughter for Christmas, but I just couldn’t wait! Her reaction to this book was priceless! She giggled and pointed to herself and kept wanting me to read it to her all day long!
This book is not only fun but reaps life lessons and educational value. It encourages one on one conversation with your child! The Noah and the Ark Adventure book teaches children a life lesson in how listening and waiting on God reaps wonderful benefits. When we weren’t reading through the story, I pointed out the various animals to my daughter and taught her the names for each of them.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book! My only hope is that in the future more customizable options such as adding more than one photo of your child into the book can be added.
