Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day with your kids? We do, generally with a craft, or a small treat. Last year I made chocolate play dough and then we made cute monster valentines with the boys! This year, Evan got a special keepsake book that I hope he’ll cherish for years to come – and you can get one for your kids too!
I recently got the chance to review a special Valentine’s Day edition of I See Me!’s classic Who Loves Me? personalized book. In the Valentine’s Day gift set, the book has a pink cover, and it includes special personalized stickers. This gift set retails at $34.99 USD.
I See Me! has more than just books, though. They have something for everyone and every occasion.
Other items offered by I See Me! include lunchboxes, puzzles, coloring books, placemats, stickers, and growth charts.
Valentine’s Day Edition of Who Loves Me? Review
The way they personalize this book is great. They can include the child’s photo inside the book, as well as a small dedication. After that, there are six two-page spreads that focus on who loves your child. You can choose for each spread to focus on one person (ex, Mommy loves Evan!) or on multiple (Mommy and Daddy love Evan!) to include more people in the book.
The imagery is beautiful and whimsical. I’m certain I appreciated it more than my kids!
On each spread, the right side has a rhyme, while the left side is laid out like this:
“Who loves Evan? Mommy loves Evan! How much? So much!”
The repetitive fashion really helps with word recognition. I find this is great for pre-readers and new readers! Evan has already been asking about words, letters, and word sounds, as well as occasionally pointing his name out when he sees it. I’m sure this book will help. The rhymes are also well written, and I always love a good rhyme.
Overall, we love this book. Evan was so excited to see his face and name in the book! He’s looked the book over numerous times, and let’s just say, I’m glad it’s hard-bound! They can make the book for siblings, but I didn’t want to do that. Instead, I’ll have to get Oliver his own when he’s old enough to appreciate it!
