One of my favorite Christmas books chronicled my adventures with a Christmas elf, meeting Santa Claus figures from around the world. Yep, I was in the book - it was personalized throughout with my name (my friend Jennie and dog Alice made appearances, too) - quite a feat for the early 80's.
Even though we're in the digital age, I think it's still magical to see your name in print (unless it's tied to an arrest warrant in the local newspaper, of course).
Memoir of Me creates books that are personalized for your child/grandchild/niece/nephew. You write a letter, select a character that looks like your child, and they weave your letter into a personalized story. Such a fun way to create a lasting memory. And the illustrations look so cute!
