AddThis Social Bookmark Button

March is National Reading Awareness Month, a time when literacy issues are addressed as substantial, when reading issues come to the forefront and everyone is encouraged to pick their favorite book and for the love, and value, read.

Of course, some need more motivation to do so than others. When it comes to children’s books in particular, kids just light up when they recognize their name in a story and they’ll typically want to read that book over and over again. 

With this in mind, I was especially excited to learn about the personalized book options from a company called MyFairyTaleBooks, which not only carries an array of children’s titles, but also now offers other unique customized kids’ products that make perfect gifts for any occasion.

Whether in the form of a book or otherwise, there’s just nothing like personalized gifts. Not only do they demonstrate a higher degree of thoughtfulness and effort, but personalization also usually makes the item far more meaningful for the recipient.  It really shows you spent extra time and energy to customize something special for the child that can be enjoyed for years to come. 

Here are some of the gift-worthy items from MyFairyTaleBooks that I especially love:

Their “A to Z” book is an excellent educational tool for younger children who are just learning about the alphabet. It’s a washable, hardcover book that includes twenty-eight pages of alphabetical fun like rhymes and whimsical scenarios. It has the child’s name on every single page, so they’ll surely want to read it with you again and again. I should also mention this is actually an award winning book that was named Creative Child magazine’s 2013 Book of the Year in the Personalized Education Book category. So, you know this is a great one!

For those looking for a unique way to celebrate a child on their birthday, the book titled “Hooray It's Your Birthday” is a really great choice. In this adorable story, the entire community is led by a special cat named Mr. Whiskers and, eventually, they all come together to honor your specific child. If you want to personalize this book to make it even more special, you do have the option to include a photo of your child in the dedication section.

Another personalized book they offer is called “Counting Party,” which is a sweet story of a young porcupine helping to prepare for an important gathering of family and friends. In it, the numbers 1-20 are reinforced throughout and it ends with a delightfully humorous conclusion—I won’t spoil the ending for you, of course.

These are just some of the personalized hardcover storybook titles offered by MyFairyTaleBooks, as the company has a pretty large selection of genres available so you’re sure to find the perfect adventure for your child to star in. I also love that any book can include a customized dedication at the beginning to make it an extra special keepsake.

Even beyond books, The company now has a myriad of other personalized kids’ gift options like these:

Personalized Journals, which are attractive hard cover books that have a front cover personalized with the child’s name. Inside there are 120 lined pages of acid-free paper stock so kids can use it as a diary, to write poetry, or even for budding authors to get started writing their first novel. It’s also a cute item to give as personalized party favors!  

The adorable Butterflies Clipboard is great for helping kids work on their homework and generally stay organized. It also becomes a super durable dry erase board they can write on with a dry-erase marker.

Jigsaw Puzzles, like the company’s personalized Dino design, always make great gifts and are perfect for nearly any occasion. These puzzles are a great way to develop cognitive, problem solving and fine motor skills, as well as hand-eye coordination and self-esteem. This puzzles also have good sized pieces that are perfect for little hands to use.

On the home décor front, MyFairyTaleBooks offers Canvas Wall Art options that are custom-made, vibrantly colored masterpieces. The designs measure 16" x 20" and are printed on high-quality canvas. They all come ready to hang so there’s no framing necessary! These are really easy decorations that’ll look great in a child’s bedroom or playroom for years to come.

Also great for hanging, the company offers a few different kinds of charts. Their Cats & Dogs Design Growth Chart is super adorable, and is a really great way to keep track of a child's height while adding color and style to their space. Each one can measure up to five feet, with markings every 1/8 inch to help make measuring easier. When the child has outgrown the chart, it can be rolled up and kept forever as a childhood heirloom.  Their personalized Outer Space Chore Chart is also adorable, and will certainly make doing chores more fun. It has a dry-erase laminated surface so everyone can easily keep track of daily progress, and it comes with everything you need to hang it up.

And finally, the company offers a nice selection of personalized placement products like their adorable Construction design that’ll make meal time more fun.  They offer an entire collection of 11" x 18" meal-time placemats featuring classic and colorful designs that are sealed with heavy-duty laminate, so they’re sturdy and can easily be wiped clean!  

Great ideas right? And these are just some of the personalized children’s products from MyFairyTaleBooks that foster education, build self-esteem and just create joy in the lives of kids. I should also mention that all of the items from this company are made in the USA, and their easy-to-use online shopping tool lets you enter personalization details and then see exactly how the finished product will look with the child’s name, which eliminates any guesswork or unwelcome surprises.

So if you’re looking for a unique gift for a birthday, a religious holiday, a graduation or “just because,” you can definitely make it more memorable with a personalized item like these, which just might become a treasured keepsake that’s cherished for a lifetime.
