My husband Kyle has a 3 books from his childhood that he treasures more than anything. They are personalized books which feature his name throughout the story. His Dad had them made and they were some of his favorites. Kyle’s Dad died when Kyle was just 12 years old and I think these books are a very special reminder to him of his Dad. When flattenme offered to send me a personalized book for one of my children I jumped at the chance to create a special reminder for my child just as my husband has a reminder of his father.
I decided to make the book “OWL Always Love You” for my 2 year old Keegan. He is just starting to get excited about bedtime stories and we are working on a good routine for him at bedtime. I thought having his own special bedtime book would be the perfect addition to that routine. The perfect part was that the book features some of Keegan’s favorite animals. He really loves owl’s and cat’s, both of which are in the book.
Unlike traditional bedtime tales, the Owl Always Love You personalized storybook makes your child the star of the story by repeating his name in the narrative. Your little one will be drawn in by the beautiful illustrations of fuzzy (and sometimes silly) owls settling down for a good night’s sleep, and he’ll love the ethereal images of soaring kites and starlit skies. Cuddly owls, fluffy lambs, and friendly cows dazzle the pages in this very special book. Complementing the visual delight is a sonorous and soothing rhyming verse, chalk full of reminders of mom and dad’s love.
Written by Robyn Spizman and Illustrated by Erica Leighton I thought this book was adorable. The writing is so heartfelt, “Owl always love you Keegan. You put a smile upon my heart. Owl always love you. I’ve loved you from the start.” It rings so true reflecting everything I want to say (but sometimes forget). The illustrations are FABULOUS. Keegan points to every page and talks about the owls, cows, sheep, kitties etc. He constantly talks about the Owls expressions “He’s sad, He’s Crying, He’s Sleeping.”
The site is extremely easy to use for this particular book. Simply type in your childs name, select language (only English is currently available), select Hardcover ($34.95) or Paperback ($24.95), type a dedication message for the front of the book if desired and add to cart for check-out. Very Easy!
flattenme offers 9 different personalized book options. Others they offer have the option of using a picture that will be used throughout the book. They also offer t-shirts, cards, and wall art. I had never previously ordered anything from them, but I will definitely be using them in the future.
