I See Me! Review

Who is I See Me?

I See Me! provides the highest quality, most personalized children’s books available. I See Me! was started by founder Maia Haag and her husband Allan after they received a personalized book as a gift for their first son in 1998. While they loved that it was personalized, they thought that the illustrations could have been much better and the story more customized to the child. Thus I See Me! was born.

Their goal was to produce an educational book that would teach young children how to recognize letters and spell their names.

They are pleased to say their books have become popular among celebrities including Courteney Cox, Brooke Shields and Jessica Alba along with every day parents like me.

Their mission is to increase self esteem in children through personalized books that celebrate the uniqueness of each child. The goal of I See Me! books is to show each child how absolutely unique and special he or she is, to teach the child how to spell his or her name, and to build vocabulary skills.

Special Notes

Having a book or item personalized for a child is a very special gift. There are many questions people have and most have been answered at the I See Me! FAQ page.  A few notes to highlight are:

What about adopted children? Yes, there are custom options for the arrival day instead of day of you were born.

Can you select certain fairies, animals, sea creatures or countries to be used in your book? Yes, we can accommodate this request if you send an email to customerservice@iseeme.com within 4 hours after completing your order.

More information in these topics and many others can be found at the FAQ page. Click here for a link.

Here are some of the questions which make your book personalized:

  • Childs first name
  • Childs last name
  • Childs gender
  • Childs birth month
  • Childs year of birth
  • Dedications (examples being: I love you! Happy Easter! To a Wonderful Big Sister! Merry Christams! etc….)
  • Photo of your child

Mama’s Experience

Personalized Storybook:


“Celebrate your favorite little preschooler with this adorable new personalized storybook, The Very Important Preschooler (V.I.P.)! Your child will learn that being a “V.I.P.” means making new friends at preschool, sharing, helping out, cleaning up, learning new things and more. The Very Important Preschooler is filled with lots of great messages for your little preschooler and is personalized throughout the story and on the cover with his or her name! Written by Jennifer Dewing, Illustrated by Jill McDonald.” – I See Me!

This book is so beautiful. The illustrations are bright and bold. Perfect for a toddler to be fully engaged while reading.

When you child hears their name being read aloud during the story their eyes perk up and eyes open wide. I showed my daughter that her name was in print right there in the book. She thought that was too special. She loves this book because it truly is about her. The book will forever be a cherished part of our home library.

“Our personalized lunch boxes make your child feel special every day! Each one of our lunch boxes features your child’s name on multiple sides. On the inside lid, there’s a chalkboard where you can write a personalized note to your child each morning!

Safe for storing food, our lunch boxes are made of tin and contain no lead. They’re also great for storing toys and other treasures!

Hand wash with dish soap. Do not put into dishwasher. Chalk is not included.”I See Me!

My daughter has seen many photos of lunch boxes in her expansive 2 years. She knows what they are. But, she has never had her own. We typically use a cooler when going to the zoo or vacation. We share a large container for the whole family. She had no idea that she was getting her own lunch box.

When I showed my daughter her lunch box she got so excited. She wanted to hold it and carry it around with her. She even showed her little brother new prized possession. She has loved purses and bags for ever, so it was natural that my little girl would want to tote around her new lunch box. I sat her down and showed her that her name was on the box she got giddy with excitement. It was all hers. She didn’t have to share this one with her little brother. Having it personalized created a confidence and independence in her. I highly recommend getting a personalized lunch box from I See Me!
