To help your child know just how special she or he is, we personalize the cover of the book with your child’s name.

Our own name is a powerful symbol of our uniqueness and our place in the world. This begins very early. Within just a few months of life, a baby responds to his or her name, long before they can even speak. Connecting your child’s name to a special book when they are a toddler and preschooler makes them feel important and special.



This is the page where a message can be personalized, along with including your child’s photo and name. Imagine what a special memory this will become over the years.

This allows you a unique opportunity to show your child how much you love and cherish him or her. It also conveys to children how important and powerful books are, which is central to a love of reading and learning. If you are a relative or friend, this makes a perfect gift for parents and children.



The poems integrate the child’s name and photo throughout the book. Using their image and name builds their sense of self—that they are in the world, are unique, and they matter.

Hearing their name and seeing their photo in relation to the affirmations helps them relate much more directly with what the poems are sharing and promising. And did you know that babies and toddlers learn language through their names? When they hear their name it is a way to bring attention to the language around it. Further, it is an influential way to showcase the connection of the spoken word to print. This sets the stage for successful reading and literacy. All of this is a win-win!
