Enter to win a Hardcover Personalized Children’s Book *Winner Announced*

Personalized Children’s Book

personalized children's booksEnter to win a personalized children’s book of your choice from MyFairyTale books.  Every hardbound book is professionally printed with bright, true colors.  A couple of months ago, we welcomed a new boy into our extended family and I wanted a unique gift that was unlikely to be duplicated.  I remembered how much I loved books as a child and believe every child learn to love reading at an early age.  I read to my children as babies and want to instill that love of reading in my new nephew as well.

So, I got him a personalized children’s book from MyFairyTale Books.  It just seemed like the most appropriate personalized children’s gift around.

Selecting the book was the hardest part of ordering.  They have so many books to choose from including books with recognizable characters like Scooby Doo and Sesame Street.  MyFairyTaleBooks also offers personalized children’s books for special events like visiting a fire station, potty training or a first day of school.  They have books for babies learning to potty train all the way up to early readers.

I think the “new baby” books would make a great gift to explain the wondrous excitement surrounding a new baby to a young sibling.  A young child learning to read would find delight in seeing their name on every page of an alphabet book.  Imagine the excitement a birthday child would get from having a book made just for their special day?  They also have holiday and religious books.  Some books that appeal to girls and some aimed at boys.

Enter to win a Personalized Children's bookI chose “The Train With No Name” by J.W. Dixon for my nephew.  I love the message that even a small person can make a big difference in the world.  I’ve seen too many kids grow up feeling powerless.  In this book, my nephew, his aunts and uncle visit a train station in his own hometown.  He becomes the engineer of a small, unimportant engine and saves a track tester from danger.  In the process, the train earns a name.

It’s a cute book with an important message delivered in a non-preachy style.  Taydon’s name appears on every page of the book.

It’s a hardbound book with simple, bright images relate-able to young children.  The fun images are not over-complicated nor distracting from the story. Of course, kids being kids, the cover is bound to get stuff spilled on it.  Not to worry, it’s a washable cover.  Just take a sponge to it and wipe up the mess.  It’s a good quality book that will hopefully become a cherished keepsake helping Taydon to remember an imaginary adventure where he was smart enough to save the day and make a difference.

Stories are like children. They grow in their own way. Grow in Wisdom and in Stature.
With love and brightest hopes for your future,
Aunt Sissy

Each book has an inscription page so that you can create a special message for the intended recipient.  Mine says:

This book was created especially for Taydon

Stories are like children. They grow in their own way.
Grow in Wisdom and in Stature.
With love and brightest hopes for your future,
Aunt Sissy

I quoted one of my favorite children’s authors, Madeleine L’Engle.  The second line quotes the Bible – and is my hope for all children that they grow in wisdom and stature.  I don’t want them to just grow up and be physically strong, but also of good character and able to make good decisions, which is what it takes to make a positive difference in the world.

Be sure to visit MyFairyTaleBooks to see all the personalized children’s books they offer.  They also offer other great personalized gift ideas like DVD’s, music CD’s, Puzzles and gift sets.  Be sure to like them on Facebook, Follow on twitter, Circle them on Google+, and follow on Pinterest.

I enjoyed this personalized children’s book so much that I decided to give one away here.  You will be able to choose any book on MyFairyTaleBooks website and have it completely personalized.  This would make a great gift idea for a special kid in your life.  Commemorate a special event or give it “Just Because”.  Books teach reading skills and reading is a gift that lasts a lifetime.
