**Product received for review. All thoughts are my own.

When I was a kid, I remember looking at those personalized gifts with your name written on them with longing. You see, with a name like 'Randi', they NEVER had my name. On occasion, I'd find a 'Randy' but did I really want the boys version of my name when people already so often saw my name and expected a boy? No, not really! I just had to resign myself to never having my name on anything.

So, as a mother, surely I would not do that to my children, right? I'd give them more common names? That might be what was expected, but no, I did the same to my own children! Shaun, while a more common name, is perhaps the least common spelling- named after his dad. Finley, a beautiful name (and okay, admittedly, yes it's an Irish boys' name), but not a very common one in the least. It seems I resigned my kids as well to a life without personalization... well, that is if they too were kids in the 90s.

Thankfully, we're not living in the 90s! We're living in the age of TRUE personalization... where you can buy gifts and completely customize the spelling. And when it comes to those personalized kids' gifts, for me none are better than I See Me Kids Books!

We were first introduced to I See Me a few years ago. My son instantly fell in love. There is just something about seeing your name within the story and within the artwork that makes reading that much more fun. With every new I See Me book added to his collection, he fell more in love. Last year, we decided it was time for my daughter to start her I See Me book collection. While she liked her book and still reads it now, at just two years old at that time, I don't think she was quite at a point that she could truly appreciate just how cool these books were. After all, she can't read on her own, so how does she really know that her name is all over the pages?

This year, when I saw 'My Christmas Sing-Along Book and Songs', I knew that THIS would be the perfect I See Me book for her:

The book features all the lyrics from popular holiday songs, all personalized with your child’s name! It is sure to be a treasured gift to put you in the holiday spirit! Gift givers can also include a custom dedication and a photo to make the book extra special. You and your child will enjoy singing the songs together and making Christmas memories to last a lifetime!

Jingle Bells
Jolly Old St. Nicholas
Here We Come A-Caroling
Deck The Halls
12 Days Of Christmas
Up On The Housetop
Over The River And Through The Woods
We Wish You A Merry Christmas

You see, this wasn't JUST a book, it was a CD too. As soon as it arrived, she could not wait to put it in. Imagine her surprise that within the lines of some of our favorite holiday tunes, she heard her own name... straight from the radio! Excited does not even begin to cover it! She was ecstatic! She may not be able to read her name on the pages of the accompanying book, but she clearly knew they were singing about her! Absolutely amazing!

I must say, even my 9 year old loved it. At his age, I thought perhaps he had outgrown the I See Me craze... but he couldn't believe his ears! In fact, he was a little envious and wanted his own!! He may be a more advanced reader, but perhaps that fun is one that cannot be outgrown just yet!

From Christmas to birthday or just because, we love I See Me! And it's not just books, they also offer a fantastic selection of personalized kids gifts such as Lunchboxes / Puzzles /Coloring BooksPlacemats / Stickers and Growth Charts
