As you saw in my Holiday Gift Guide for the Kids, books are big on my Christmas list this year. One brand that I didn’t mention in my Holiday Gift Guide, though, was Read Your Story, and the reason I didn’t mention them was because their books are so good, they had to stand alone!
Read Your Story (books can be found at ReadYourStory.com) allows you to make personalized books for your little one, complete with their face and name throughout the book, and even a few sneaks of friends or family throughout the books!
We were lucky enough to receive two books for the kiddos to try out, and I must say, their little faces lit up when they got to see their own face all over a book. Immediately, each kid claimed a parent, drug us to the sofa and had us read and re-read their own books over and over again, of course stopping to giggle each time they saw their faces!
Anissa’s book was Anissa’s Night Before Christmas, which is perfect for kiddos 3-8 since it has a bit of a more developed Christmas story, retelling the classic Twas the Night Before Christmas. Anissa loved pointing out the rhyming words throughout the story!
Tino got ABCs with Me, which is perfect for 1-3 year olds and helps work on letter recognition and sounds. It’s 30 pages long, and is available in hard or soft cover! He loved that he “got to be” a pilot, a firefighter, an astronaut, and even a kangaroo joey 🙂
Check out this kid’s face when he saw his book for the first time!!!
Books from Read Your Story are great keepsake gifts for young readers (0-7 years), and printed on thick, acid-free, archival quality paper. You can tell these books are made to last, and made to withstand little hands 🙂 They’re available exclusively on ReadYourStory.com, with prices starting at $29.99.
Check out their full collection of titles, including What Would You Like for Tea, Rainy Day Picnic, and a Monster Mess! All you have to do to win Christmas this year is pick your title, upload your favorite photo of your kiddo, include a dedication and press Order! My order arrived within 2-3 days, and I was beyond thrilled with the customer service and speed of this service, especially since personalized gifts tend to take longer!
Disclosure: I received free product from Read Your Story in exchange for my review, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
