Celebrating 15 Years with I See Me! Books "My Very Own Name"

I received products for free in exchange for a review. All thoughts/opinions are my own!

I See Me! publishes very high quality personalized children’s books that build self-esteem by celebrating the uniqueness of each child.

My Very Own Name personalized book is where it all started at I See Me! Over fifteen years ago, Maia and Allan developed the My Very Own Name book after their first baby was born. Maia came up with the idea for the book while strolling around a lake in Minneapolis with their firstborn, Austin.  Allan's design firm designed the book and illustrator Mark Mille took almost two years to hand paint the detailed illustrations of the animals you see in the book.  They wanted each book to be perfect and have beautiful, unique illustrations based on the letters of your child’s name. In this special edition they updated the design with a limited-edition cover and a special letter to your child from the co-creators.

I love these name books! This is our second book from I See Me! and they're both amazing. With a name like Conrad, my son will be proud to share it with his junior like himself, and I love how this book embraces him and his wonderful name. The colors are so vivid and bright, and the illustrations are crisp, clear, and very well done over all. You can tell so much time and energy went i to ensuring every page was pure perfection. 

I also like that this book is yet another learning tool and can help him learn to spell his name. With going by one letter at a time spelling his name out, not only is he learning the animals that start with his letters, but you slowly spell their name until it's fully done at the end. 

One of his favorite parts of the book is the very end when they have each letter and animal spelled out. It's fun to have him point and wonder what each animal is and the letter, which makes yet another learning opportunity and great quality time together with my little guy. 

You can purchase this special anniversary collection book directly from the I See Me! website for $34.99 and it's processing time is a couple weeks.
