The Perfect Gift - A Personalized Book

When choosing a gift for children it is always important to find something exciting. If you are trying to find something educational as well, the options become dramatically reduced.

The perfect kids gift captures their imagination and stimulates them. Children have an amazing ability to immerse themselves in their own fantasy world and they often need only the slightest of prompts to be taken away on a spectacular adventure.

While older children enjoy adolescent novels such as the Harry Potter series, younger kids need a more focused story to begin their journey.

Getting kids interesting in reading has many benefits, and if you can do it while they enjoy themselves all the better.

Choosing A Personalized Childrens Book

 This is the most important step.

 A personalized book or gift will quickly lose its novelty value if the topic does not already interest the child. Pirates, Jungle Animals, Cars, Princesses, Comic Book Characters, or Dinosaurs are all favourites and are good areas to go for if you have to guess. It is much better to act on specific intelligence, so if you are buying a gift from a distance, ask someone a little closer. Remember that children's obsessions change quickly so try and ensure you target their latest fad. It is worthwhile spending a little extra time to get this step right.

Where To Find Personalized Kids Books

Once you know what style of book you are after you can narrow your search.

Kids Personally have a range of titles that include both the child's picture and first name, covering popular areas such as Space, Underwater, Princess, Pirates and Monsters. They also do personalized activity books and a range that includes the child's name in the title.

Like many book retailers, they also offer personalized DVDs where the child can join in an adventure with Spiderman or Dora The Explorer.

Happy Kidz is a great place to go for the cartoon and comic enthusiast. They have numerous titles from DC Comic and Marvel as well as Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters. There are also plenty of books and DVDs aimed at specific celebrations such as birthdays and Christmas. have a special range of books called 'You & Me' that capture the relationship between the child and their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, or other special person. A series of questions are answered to enable the book to accurately detail the special moments and interests in the childs life.

Reading For Fun

 A well chosen personalized book is the perfect gift to excite and create an interest in reading. They were previouslyhard to find but now that they can be ordered over the Internet just about everyone has access to this type of special gift.

Thanks to a competitive market, these books are now very affordable. Just remember that some of them require a few days to be printed so make sure you plan ahead and have some photos prepared as well in case you want to add them to your chosen book. Then all that is required is to give the book to the excited child and watch their face light up as they become the star of the show.

      The idea for personalized books is catching on and is a wonderful way to encourage a love of reading in children.
