It is a day that any mommy would be proud of - the day when your son stars in a book! ;) This was made possible by Tatiana and Kathleen of Look It's About Me. My heart swelled with pride in seeing my son's name emblazoned on the cover when I opened the package from LBC yesterday.
I was, of course, expecting the book. I did write about Look It's About Me some days ago (read the post here: Your Kids can Star in a Personalized Book ~ Mom-APPROVEDProduct). Still, that did not stop my heart from racing the moment I unwrapped the book. As any proud mommy would tell you, the heart can hold so much emotion that it could burst with happiness. I do hope that is not literal as I have a heart problem LOL
The little star was asleep when the book arrived - he woke up at 6 PM! When he did, we read the book. I was so excited that I didn't notice we look so "yagit" until I looked at the pics :P So you have to forgive the shabby models. I suggest you fix your eyes on the book's pages ;)
|Exploring the book|
At 1 year and 2 months, Zedi may not know how to read yet but he shows an inclination for books. I think that's the only thing he's inherited from me! He was all smiles when I handed him the book. His pudgy little fingers grabbed at the pages and within seconds he was done with the book from cover to cover haha
One thing mommies, this is not a board book so take extra precaution when handing the book to your little kids if you want to preserve its quality until he/she already knows how to handle it when older. It is hardbound so you will not worry about the cover. That is the reason why I was confident in giving it to Zedi because I knew he would just flip it from cover to cover in his excitement. I was right.
As you can notice in the picture, you can actually place a dedication for the book. That is why it makes the perfect gift because your name will forever be placed for the kiddo to read in the future. Ha! You'd be the coolest ninong or ninang ;)
Let your kids have fun looking for their names in the book. This is an excellent way to teach your kids how to spell their name or learn the ABCs as you read along.
|Look Mommy! It's Me! ;)|
Check out the pages below.
|Dedications are possible|
Let your kids look for the letters that spell out his/her name. That would be fun! The other books also feature bonus activities like "look for spaceships in the pages" or other relevant activities.
|Zedi's friends are also featured in the book!|
You will notice that the cake has 1 candle only because I chose to celebrate his first birthday. You actually have the option to choose which birthday the kid is going to celebrate in the book. Now would be the time to save up for the book to give to your kid when he celebrates his birthday in the coming months.
|Happy Birthday Zeidric!|
You have the freedom to choose who will be included in the book - be it the kid's siblings, his/her friends, pets, whoever :) There's a limit to how many you can put, though, but the order form is self explanatory and easy to fill out. You'd surely have no problem when you place the order.

The books are valued at P1200. The book is worth every penny of that amount. It's going to be a keepsake, a favorite book that your kid can take pride of. This is the perfect book to show to friends. They'd surely wonder how in the world did your kid have a book written just for him! :)
