This contest is now closed. The winner is felicia k. Congrats!
One of my favorite books that I know I will be passing onto my new nephew is called My Very Own Name. This is customized book for your kids. The animals throughout the story spell out the name you give them (first and last name too if you want!). The story is written in rhyme, and definitely will grab the attention of any little one reading it. When you child gets older and is learning to read (like my 5 year old Madison), they think it is the coolest thing ever that one of their books has their name in it. It also helps with letter recognition too. The great thing is that the illustrations in this book are so good that you can easily make up your own story instead of the one that is printed. The attention to detail is amazing. Another cool feature is the little guide in the back of the book. It lists about 61 animals and a cool fun fact about each.
If you have a little one in your life (here already or about to be born), this is a gift they won't be getting from anyone else. The age range on this book is 0 – 8 years old, so it is the perfect customizable gift!
Now, I have arranged for one of my lucky readers to get one of these customized books. Here's what you need to do:
