Instilling in kids the importance of the earth and all the beauty in it is not always an easy task. I want my girls to learn about all the amazing places and cultures around the world and a fun and exciting way is with a personalized book from I See Me!
My Very Own World Adventure introduces children to the gift of travel and adventure. This storybook shows kids just how big the world is, and through the unique personalization features, they learn the importance of being open to diversity and culture. Your child gets to go on a magic carpet around the world. The way it is personalized is that your child’s first and last names spell out letter-by-letter on each page and based off the letter the story continues through those countries. My daughter has an L in her name so her book visits Latvia.
This adventurous, personalized book was illustrated by 63 artists from around the world! Your book will differ based off your child’s name. My daughter’s book lists 13 illustrators in the back of her book based off the number of letters in her name. A photo of each of them and which country they illustrated is also listed. Each artist determined what the gift would be from their own country to ensure authenticity. At the end of the book, there is an illustrated encyclopedia describing the gifts that were given by children from each country.
$1 of every My Very Own World Adventure book will be donated to Room to Read to help support global literacy. Room to Read is an award-winning non-profit organization for improving literacy and gender equality in education in the developing world.
Each of these books are bound just like any other hardback book you would find in a store. These are extremely nice and made to last. I know my kids always love having personalized books as it just feel more special and exciting for them. I like that it has a world map in the back and pinpoints all the spots your child’s adventure went through. A great book to get kids interested in new and exciting places around the world and would make a most excellent gift.
