The only thing cooler than giving kids books for Christmas – giving kids personalized books

As I read my own childhood picture books to my daughter, I also read the handwritten dedication penned on the first page of most of them. To Rita, on her third birthday, from Mommy and Daddy. To Rita, from Grandma and Grandpa. But of course that was long before computers. And Photoshop.

Now dedications are taken to the next level with the The Kids Personalized Book Store. The first pages of dozens of books from The Pokey Pup to Little Women can be printed with your own dedication, and what’s really cool, a photo too. Kids will flip when they see their own picture right in the book.

Our seasonal pick: Grab the The Night Before Christmas and personalize for baby’s first Christmas. Not like he’ll be able to sit through it yet, but when’s the last time that mattered? We’re talking sentimentality here! -Rita
