I was sent the book “My Very Own Name”. I had filled in all the blanks and knew the basics of the story, but I was surprised at how much I loved it. Wow. On the first reading, I was teary. The animals in the story choose the letters to spell my son’s name (first and last). He loved the story and asked to read it again. And again. And again. Even my other children, who could be jealous for not having a book of their own, love to read his story. I am considering getting one for each of my kids.
The book I received from I See Me was hardcover, large and very sturdy. It will stand many hours of reading! (Good thing!) The illustrations are bright, beautiful and so detailed that you can read the book multiple times and see something new each time. My children loved the little details like the tear on the nightingale’s face, the racing goggles on the cheetah and the glasses on the crocodile. Plus, at the end of the book, there is an animal encyclopedia that lists each of the animals so the kids can find them in the pictures throughout the book. Each animal also has a few details about what makes him/her unique. Check out this video on YouTube.
I love how personal the book is and how it makes the child feel special. I love how the book can be used as a medium for teaching the child the letters of his/her first and last name. I love the educational opportunities that abound throughout the book, from beginning to end. I just love this book!
