Featured Post for October 28th - Your Picture Book

I always love it when the kids make the gift that they give me. It has so much more meaning knowing they spent so much time on it and put that extra love into it. It is always a gift that will be remembered and will hold many memories. The same goes for children - they love seeing themselves in a way they have not seen before or maybe in something they dream about doing. Your Picture Book has taken personalized books to a new level. Your child will not only hear their name, but see themselves on every page. Before adding your child's picture to the storybook illustrations, they digitally convert the child’s photo to appear as a painting. "This gives a seamless blending of child and illustration that looks almost like the child and illustrations were painted together."
The book being featured in this post is the one they sent for my youngest daughter. She absolutely loved it. She loves playing teacher and uses this book almost daily to "teach her students" their numbers!
Your Picture Books are reasonably priced for a personalized item starting at $34.95 for hard cover, but you can always go with soft cover for $8 less. Their coloring books start at only $14.95, and DVD's start at $29.95. For the holiday season they have "My Christmas Adventure" personalized DVD. Your child will be the star when Jack Frost sets out to ruin Christmas. Packed with bonus features, this 30 minute action packed DVD features the child's face in full color throughout as they become one of Santa's favorite elves.

  1. Looks like a really fun gift. Not sure I would pay that much though, for the hard cover. I can see why your daughter loves it!

  2. Items like this are great gifts. Who doesn't love things that are personalized...especially about yourself. I know my kids would love these.

  3. I would think that personalized books would make a child more apt to read.They look like a lot of fun.

  4. I've always thought that these are great esp since my child has a non traditional name.

  5. I usually see the personalized name book. I like that they can personalized it with the kids pic!

  6. I've always loved the types of books that are personalized for your child!! I wish they were available when I was little, but I'm glad that my niece and nephew and godson are able to enjoy them. Maybe if these become really popular they will make more options available.

    Thanks so much!!
