I LOVE books. I am a huge fan of books for children and a big supporter of anything that gets kids excited about literacy. When a child becomes excited about reading, the world literally opens up for them. I See Me! has developed a great way for children to not only get excited about reading, but to literally be a part of the story! I See Me! places your child right into a beautifully written and illustrated story.
In “My Very Own Name” (the title we were blessed to receive and review), the animals in the forest are so excited to welcome a new baby into the world. After announcing the child’s birthday (something my daughter LOVED), the animals take turns bringing letters for the child’s name. The book ties in letter and name recognition beautifully, as animals that also begin with each letter bring the letters for the new baby. In my daughter’s book, the hippo brings the first letter, an H. On each subsequent page, your child will watch their name come to life. When their first name is spelled, the animals will begin to bring the letters that form their last name! (How cool is that?!) My daughter also loved that she found her own name on the title page in a special dedication! This book certainly made Hannah feel special and I cannot express enough how much she loved seeing her name come to life in this adorably written (and rhyming!) story by Maia Haag.
This book has quickly become a cherished favorite of my sweet girl.I love that she will always have a reminder of how special she is to us, and love that we had an easy way to do something truly JUST FOR HER. It was so much fun to delight with her as she would say, “I know that the next page will have an N!”, and then watch her excitement over seeing which animal would bring the letter. The charming prose of Maia Haag and the gorgeous illustrations of Mark Mille make My Very Own Name a truly special gift for any child.
