My Very Happy Birthday - A great new addition to the I See Me! line

top image
If you've been reading Mac Kid Rockville-Gaithersburg for a while, then you know how much we love the personalized books available from I See Me!  We were so thrilled to find out about their newest book - My Very Happy Birthday and receive a copy to review.  My son already loves his I See Me! Pirate Tale so I knew this new book would have big shoes to fill.  As a mom, I love that the pages in this book are thick and sturdy, while not feeling too thick and making my son, who is almost five, feel like the book was a "baby" book.

In this charming birthday storybook, Turtle, Duck, Mouse, Bluebird and others come together to put on a very happy birthday party for a child. My son absolutely loved all the animals and the illustrations are bold, bright and fun.

My Very Happy Birthday was illustrated by artist Mati McDonough. McDonough used a unique collage style of illustration, bright colors and adorable animal characters to bring the story to life. According to I See Me! Co-Founder Allan Haag, “The personalization of this book is incredible. The child’s name is personalized on the birthday cake frosting, banners and invitations shown in the book. Children will delight in seeing their name throughout the story- in both the text and the pictures.”  I was thrilled to see my son's name appear on almost every page.  My son loves recognizing his name not just in the text, but also on the cake, and on the invitation.  It is special touches like this that really set I See Me! apart from the competition.

This storybook comes in a “Birthday Girl” version and a “Birthday Boy” version. You can take a virtual tour of the “birthday girl” version of the new storybook here, and the “birthday boy” version of the storybook here.

According to I See Me! CEO Maia Haag, “We are really pleased that there is a now birthday-themed storybook for this very special occasion in a child’s life. Our loyal customers have been waiting for this book launch.” My Very Happy Birthday retails for $24.95. This unique personalized storybook arrives within three weeks of ordering, and makes a great gift.

All I See Me! Inc. books are personalized with the child’s first and last name, and they include dedications to the child from the sender.  Parents can also add the specific birthday their child is celebrating if they wish. 

The books are available at online, where you can take free virtual tours of each storybook.

I would love to win this book for my son, Marcos, because his birthday is this month and he's been feeling a little left out since Carlos was born. This book would make him feel extra special and I would enjoy seeing the smile on his face when he sees his name in his very own book.

This is so cute! My daughter will celebrate her 1st birthday next month and LOVES books. I know she'd light up the minute we read her this. In fact, since she started crawling, she wakes up and immediately crawls over to the shelf, pulls down her favorite books and looks through the pictures. Thank you for considering giving her this personalized book to add to her collection. We are big fans of Macaroni Kid!
