Reading with I See Me for the Perfect Holiday Gift

Teaching my son to love reading and books has been a top priority since he was born. Years before reading independently was even a possibility, my husband and I would read to him nightly. This helped to set a pattern we continue to repeat now years and years later.

Developing Reading Skills

As my son grew, we discovered that we could encourage reading from a ton of different angles, and it didn’t need to be limited to the basic baby books we already had on our shelves. We would point out words on signs. We did alphabet puzzles. We also made numerous trips to the library and bookstores to pick out books that he would want to read over and over again and new books to mix things up. Each holiday we would also incorporate special seasonal books to link reading to the excitement of the season.

Learning Letters and to Spell

One of the many things we tried that worked particularly well were personalized items. Growth charts and puzzles that worked in his name were great at helping him to recognize and write his name, as well as learn letters when they weren’t in ‘ABC’ order. But more than that, seeing his name in print (not just when mommy or daddy wrote it) gave him tremendous pride.

Your Child’s Own Holiday Keepsake

With that in mind, when we were offered a personalized Christmas book from I SEE ME we jumped at the chance to check it out. I knew that combining the excitement ofIMG_5058-1 the holidays with seeing his name in an actual book would be a total hit. I wasn’t disappointed. Right off the bat, he loved seeing his name on the cover of a professionally bound book. Likewise, he was completely charmed that there was a photo of himself on the title page. In addition to incorporating his name into the story, it was cleverly incorporated into the charming illustrations. With each turn of the page, he would hunt for his name in the pictures along with his prominent role in the story. This lovely book is the perfect keepsake that is bound to make an appearance each year at holiday time.

Finding the Perfect Gift

IMG_5057-1In my annual hunt for the perfect gift for new parents and young kids these books deserve a top spot on my shopping list. Shopping needn’t end with books either, as I hunted around the I SEE ME site I discovered loads of other adorable gifts ranging from ornaments to puzzles and lunchboxes, to stickers and coloring books, and growth charts. I love knowing that I’ll be giving a truly unique gift as well as one that fosters learning and self-esteem. I also don’t mind knowing that it only takes about two weeks from the time I order until my gift arrives. I hate having to worry about the holidays before school even starts.
