The Gift of a Child's Name
He's four and he just learned how to spell and write his name recently. He is so proud (and so am I!). It's nothing to consider ordinary, even though most children in America learn how to spell and write their own name.
But there is a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when they see their name in writing and recognize it as themselves. To me, names are so important and we didn't chose any of our children's names lightly.
Name recognition offers children a sense of self-awareness and identity. Even as a baby, children become aware of who they are by name over time. And they continue to grow into recognizing that through the consistent use of their name and learning to spell and read it as their own.
It seemed so fitting to gift him with ISeeMe.com personalized books after he made this accomplishment. And let me tell you, he was as happy as pie! The expression on his face to see his own name in a book about himself was priceless, to say the least. He was so excited and shocked to see his own name in a book just for him.
The pictures are bright and engaging, the text unique, and overall, absolutely personal. David enjoyed scanning every.single.page in hunt for his name and when he would find it he would shout "D-A-V-I-D!"
We are a BIG fan of good, quality books and to have a personalized book for your child truly is a treasure. I know from experience.
I remember my mom getting me something similar with mother goose nursery rhymes when I was little and I thought it was SO neat. It was as if my mom was talking to me through the book. But not in a creepy way. Just in a personal way. It was one way I felt connected to her and it made me feel special.
ISeeMe.com has a variety of beautiful books you can personalize for your child for many different occasions, including just because.
With Easter approaching, this is a wonderfully personal and tangible way to connect with your child. It's a gift that will last beyond the basket and candy.
They have so many different picture books to choose from, you're sure to find something suitable and of interest to your child.
