True Story

Want to help a child get caught up in a good book? Then try sharing one where kids can find themselves on every page! This imaginative picture book is not only full of fun, colorful illustration and high-flying fun, but the text is custom printed with details about your child. With 32 full-color pages, the story celebrates your child's life in cheerful rhyming text, and not only mentions their name and birthdate, but also their friends and grandparent, favorite places to go and more. The book is the inspired creation of Sarah Headrick and Sarah Rivera, two mothers with years of experience picking out gifts for kids. Illustrator Jill Bartolucci is a self-proclaimed urban folk artist, and her whimsical pictures are full of the wonder of childhood. Printed in Olathe, KS.

        I purchased this book for my daughter's 3rd birthday - I know she's going to love reading her name throughout the book, as well as the names of some of her favorite people and places! Beautiful illustrations...I just wish there was a way to include my daughter's picture throughout the book.

              I ordered this for the welcoming of our second granddaughter. It was perfect! Her name is mentioned throughout along with that of her sister, cousin and favorite things. It is a colorful, easy to read book, and we were able to put our personal welcome in the front of the book. I did also order the book "What big sister Mae does best" for our first granddaughter so she got a gift too. That book was equally as nice and was carried around by Mae throughout the day, as she read each page to all of the guests at the welcoming. I would recommend both books!

                I ordered this book for my niece and sent it to her for her birthday. Adding her personal details to the book made it so special for her. She is two and loves to read stories at bedtime. Nothing is better than reading a book with your own story in it. Definitely recommend.

                Never received the replacement book, even though I thought I had responded to everything asked of me. Perhaps because I didn't personally reply to the last information required of me as I was sick. My daughter responded for me, but I guess the message did not get to Lauren.

                        What a terrific way for a child to learn,as they read a book with themselves being the main character. This fact alone should help the child really recall any other important facts or 'how-to's in the book.

                        A recycle of similar ideas - the artwork is the real seller here - the personalization would need to be spot on to draw repeat sales and make it a keepsake. This depends on a good writer/editor.

                        We have something similar from another author and it has made a really cute gift for young kids. I'm happy to see another story with an expanded concept. I would absolutely buy this if it was priced right ($35 or under)

                        Like the idea.. But would prefer that the child NOT be the central character in the story line.. I already know enough people that need to be the focus.

                        This is awful. Children are by nature self-centered. The challenge is to get them to think of others, not themselves all the time. Stop the madness!!!
