Personalized Children's Book Mother Goose Review


Have you heard of KD Novelties?  They make personalized children's books that will encourage your children to read and enhance their self esteem at the same time.  Children become the stars in their very own story.  These books are fun for the avid reader and can help ignite the magic of reading back to children who might have lost interest.  KD Novelties have personalized photo books, children's photo DVDs, as well as personalized books, music and gifts!

 Mother Goose

I chose to make a personalized Mother Goose book for D for her upcoming 5th birthday!  This is going to be a surprise present for her so she hasn't seen it yet.  I am so pleased with this book.

Here is the front and back covers of our book.

Creating this book on-line was so easy!  KD Novelties has an extremely user friendly website.  There is a fabulous virtual tour of each book on-line allowing you to choose the best book for every occasion.  I loved being able to read the story and see where exactly my personalization would come into the story.  You have the option to auto play through the book or flip the pages yourself.  Once I chose my book, I selected the personalization button to begin making the story my own.  I entered D's name, hometown, a few siblings and a dedication at the beginning of the book.

The beginning of the story has a dedication page.

 We chose to have C and E appear in the story with D.

So, now I have this book, and I like it!  The hardback cover is nice, the printing looks good, and the pages are cut cleanly.  The binding could be a little tighter, but it's not bad.  I have to say that I am impressed and for $9.95 I think it is a superb value.  This would make a great birthday or Christmas gift!

In this Mother Goose book, D is going on an adventure to help Mother Goose find her way home.  Along the way they run into many familiar Mother Goose characters.  I really like that numerous actual Mother Goose rhymes appear throughout the book - Old King Cole, Humpty Dumpty, Little Miss Muffet, Mary Quite Contrary and many more!  D is familiar with many of these nursery rhymes already so I think it will be easy for her to imagine herself in this story.

I have just begun to teach D to read and I really look forward to seeing her excitement when we read this together for the first time.

To purchase your own book visit KD Novelties.  You can also connect with them on facebook and twitter for the most updated information.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.  Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

I like the concept of personalized books. It makes the kids feel like they belong, helps their imagination and inspires interaction. Mother goose is an old time favorite with a new twist. Glad to see it's still a part of children's upbringing.
