My son really loved this book. He started giggling when he saw the names of his friends in the story. He was happily surprised to see that his teacher would be leading them on this journey as pirates on the search for treasure.

My girl loves the idea of becoming a princess with super powers. She also likes being able to help Santa by delivering presents with her best friends by her side.

Hello, World!

I am no longer looking to having a new edition to my family. I thought this book for a friend of mine who recently became a new mom. 

The personal details are woven well into this tale. It is heart-warming, and I know she will be thrilled to read it to her little one. The illustrations in this story, and all of the book we received, are very cute, colourful, and engaging.

Where story time does not make a connection

Even though my kids loved reading these stories, they were a bit disappointed they could not fully connect with their characters in these books. 

My kids said the stories would have been better if they could quickly see themselves and their friends in each of the adventures. My littles ended up picking out which characters they were in each of these tales. They enjoyed their personalized stories, but their characters did not look like them in these tales.

Making Your Own Story Time Fun

Overall, my kids enjoy reading stories with a personal touch from Your Book, Your Story. They loved reading the exciting adventures in each book. Seeing their names and the names of their friends in these journeys made them light up and giggle. My littles wished they would have been able to actually see themselves in each of the tales, but they were still able to want to read the adventures over and over again.

  1. I love personalized books and will definitely getting one for both Cameron and Patrick this year for Christmas. Thanks for the super giveaway opportunity.

  2. Santa Claus’ Glasses would be appropriate for this time of year but I do like them all. 🙂 This prize would of course be for the grandkids

  3. Personalised books are great and kids love them too, I’d gift The Apprentice Knight to my grandson in Germany – at the young age of 7 he speaks 3 languages well and 1 other a little.

  4. Pirate School would be a book I think my youngest grandson would enjoy receiving. A personalized book makes a book extra special.

  5. One of my granddaughters has a birthday this month and the book A Mysterious Gift is one she might enjoy. I love to give books as gifts.

  6. I’d gift one of the personilsed books to my grandson in England. He’s only a baby now but his parents would love the book.

  7. I think The Impish Elves would make a lovely gift for my niece. She’s deffinitely a little impish herself so I think she’d enjoy this one.

  8. The Impish Elves with such a title I really should gift this one to my son but since he’s an adult his son would get it instead.

  9. Hello, World! For a sweet souvenir from birth would be for my future grandchild when it arrives and we know a name etc.

  10. My youngest grandson will be going to kindergarten soon. The book Up, up and Away… to School! would make a nice gift for him to help with his transition to this next step in his life.

  11. I would gift a personalized book to any one of my 10 grandchildren who is young enough to enjoy it ie up to 8 years old.

  12. I’d definitely gift one of the personalised books to my young grandson in England. Perhaps
    Hello, World! For a sweet souvenir from birth

  13. The Pirate School age group Primary/Elementary school would be ideal for my grandson in England since both his parents are teachers in primary schools.

  14. Up, up and Away… to School! for 3 to 5 years old would be great for my grandson in Bavaria. They do start school later there but it’s never too early to prepare kids.

  15. The Apprentice Knight for 3 to 8 year olds would be much appreciated by a grandson in Germany. Which boy doesn’t dream of being a shiny knight in white armour?

  16. Hello, World! For the soon-to-be big brother or big sister would be great for my next to youngest grandchild – there’s bound to be another baby on the way there soon. 🙂

  17. Any one of my grandkids, apart from the youngest until they get older, would thoroughly enjoy any one of these books. To have your name in print is truly amazing for them and they would treasure the book for years to come.

  18. The Impish Elves would be great for my youngest grandson. He’ll love it when he’s older and if he’s anything like his father it will suit him perfectly. 🙂
