I know I have reviewed many different personalized children’s books lately, but I have to bring you one last one! This one is not like any others though! There are tons of books where you can add your child’s name and even create a character to ‘look’ like them. With U In A Book, your child actually BECOMES the character. Not only is their name used, but a photo of them is used to create the characters.
With U In A Book, you send in a real photo of your child. Their face is then cropped and edited into a story book where they get to become the star. I received a copy of ‘your name’ The Baby. My son’s name is Devin so the ‘your name’ was changed to Devin of course. I sent a few photos of my son so that she could choose the best one for the book. I would have to say it turned out absolutely adorable!
Th front cover has my son’s name and his face attached to a baby body in a stroller. Of course this instantly caught his attention! He kept saying “me! me!” I was able to do a dedication on the inside so I included his name, birth date, and love mommy and daddy.
As you go through the story, each page talks about him and has his face connected to the images. In this story, he is shown as a monkey, a cat, a bat, a dog and more! I love when I read it to him and say “Do you look like a dog?” and he says “NO!” It is so fun for interaction with young children!
The books from U In A Book state that they are good for ages 0-9. Depending on your child’s maturity level, I would probably say at least this particular one would be more geared to maybe up to 6 or 7. The story itself is definitely a beginner story and perfect for reading to young children or for children just starting out with reading. Either way, I think the stories are absolutely adorable and would definitely recommend checking them out!
U In A Book has been kind enough to offer one of my readers a chance to win their own personalized book! The book they are offering is Your Childs Drawings. This will be a 12 page, fully customized book where your child draws the main characters and creates the story line! Time to get their creative juices flowing and help them become the author of their own book! Enter below for a chance to win!
