I adore collecting personalized books for my daughter. In addition to her ever-growing library of regular books, she also owns a number of personalized titles. Even at her young age, she loves hearing and seeing her name printed in the text of her favorite stories. Thus, when recently offered a chance to review a personalized book from MyFairyTaleBooks, I eagerly accepted the opportunity.
Because my daughter is a huge Sesame Street fan, I chose the Personalized Children’s ABC and Me on Sesame Street Book for her. At only $12.95, the book is an absolute steal, especially for a personalized book and a Sesame Street book combined! Because my daughter is currently working on learning the alphabet, the ABC story is also the perfect book for her at the moment.
When I first received my personalized copy of ABC and Me on Sesame Street, I was pleased with the quality of the book. The cover is washable with a damp cloth, which is a plus for a toddler who sometimes sticks her fingers in her mouth before touching her toys. The binding is secure and should withstand years of reading by an enthusiastic child. The paper is high quality, and the printing is bright and clear. I cannot find any visible flaws in the book. I thus rate the quality of the personalized books from MyFairyTaleBooks extremely highly.
The story inside the book focuses on my daughter helping the characters of Sesame Street on Clean-Sweep Day. At first, Big Bird thinks that cleaning up the street is too big a job. However, through a fun alphabet game, my daughter helps Big Bird learn that big jobs can seem easier when turned into a game. Plus, younger readers learn about the ABCs by finding junk and garbage that starts with each letter of the alphabet.
Although the recommended age for the book is readers between 3 and 10, my two and a half year old toddler already seems to enjoy the story. She will sit through an entire reading and then look through the pages all by herself. As she gets older and her attention span gets longer, I foresee myself reading ABC and Me on Sesame Street aloud to her again and again. Right now, she loves hearing her name read aloud, and she really loves looking at all her favorite Sesame Street characters within the brightly illustrated pages.
Final Verdict: If you are looking for personalized books for your young reader, I highly recommend both MyFairyTaleBooks and the Personalized Children’s ABC and Me on Sesame Street Book. The simple story helps teach younger readers about the alphabet. My toddler daughter loves looking at all the brightly colored pictures of her favorite Sesame Street characters. She also loves having her name inserted into the story through the personalization. My daughter and I give the Personalized Children’s ABC and Me on Sesame Street Book from MyFairyTaleBooks four enthusiastic thumbs up.
