If you are looking for a unique gift idea may I suggest I SEE ME! These books make fabulous gift ideas. My Very Own Name is celebrating 15 years and currently has an anniversary edition out. Think of what a wonderful, unique birthday gift this would make for a little one. Peyton’s birthday is coming up in May and I am extremely excited to give her a copy of My Very Own Name to celebrate. In My Very Own Name, your child will encounter beautiful illustrations of various wildlife helping to spell their name. Your child will feel like the animals are celebrating him/her. Each story is customized by the purchaser with a person’s name, date of birth, photograph and dedication. I personalized our My Very Own Name for Peyton with her birthday, a photo from last spring and a dedication from me. Now everytime she opens the book the first thing she will see if her big smiling face! Along with a message from me.
As I read the book these spectacular creatures brought each letter of Peyton to life. My favorite was P. The peacock wanted a P to be used. “It reminds me of me with my colorful hues!”
It’s as if each animal is helping to name your child. I thought that was super cute. And just when the animals finish with the first name they start on the last name. By the time, the story is finished a different animal has offered up a letter for the child’s first and last name. And each time an animal offered a letter there was a little story to go with it too along with a magnificent illustration of the animal and the letter being offered.
While each animal is offering up a letter the wise Owl is watching from the trees. He is a guardian of the forest and a keeper of letters. He watches over the baby in the middle of the field while everyone helps to name the child. It’s a cute story with one version of how your child was named. I really enjoyed our My Very Own Name. This will be a cherished book for Peyton and myself for years to come.
