My littlest loves to read. Ever since learning how to use his phonic skills to sound out words, he’s been fiercely independent and wanted to find books that he can read all by himself. Since he’s now 7, he has more options when it comes to read alone books but really, I’ve been on the lookout for stories that will really stand out. Since books are at the top of his holiday wish list, I’ve been searching out options that are not the normal run-of-the-mill books and instead books that are special and all about him. That’s why when I recently discovered Kabook! custom books, I knew that I had found the perfect holiday gift idea for my adventure-loving young reader.
In my mind as a boy mom, there are a few things that make a book for my child really great. It needs to be the right age and reading level. It needs to have adventures (because, well, boy mom here!). And it needs to have a unique way to pull my little guy in and get him involved in the story. Kabook! does all these things in a way that is so unique and fun that it makes giving these books an absolute must this holiday season. Want to see what makes them amazing? Well, my little guy is more than happy to show you.
What Is Kabook!
In case you haven’t heard of Kabook! yet, let me give you a brief introduction. Kabook! is the only company that enables families to co-create books that are customized with their child’s name and other text while at the same time allowing you to digitally integrate your child’s photo into the stories. That means that not only is your child’s name, favorite color, favorite food and more a part of the adventure but when they turn the page, their own face is looking up at them, making reading an experience they will never forget! Now, when I first started putting together a Kabook! for my little guy, I thought his picture being there would be cool. But when I discovered that Kabook! takes things step further by using unique technology to seamlessly transform my photo into an illustration, I was sold.
Trust me when I say that I have NEVER seen anything like this and having him actually drawn into the story made this such a perfect gift for my book-loving little.
What Kabook! Options Are There?
Now that you know what Kabook! is, let’s look at the different story options. For the holiday season, Kabook! is offering four beautifully written and illustrated stories that can be created as a softcover or hardcover book. They are perfect for girls or boys and the options are really topics that are perfectly chosen to speak to the adventures that children love. You can choose from the following titles:
- Wanted: The Girl/Boy Who Saved the Kingdom: Armies of frogs have invaded a nearby magical kingdom, and only your child can save it!
- We Hope You Remember: A powerful ode to family love, featuring 15 of your child’s baby photos.
- Hornswoggled!: A pirate crew has found a mysterious treasure map, but only your child can help them solve the riddles and unveil the treasure!
- The List: Santa’s List is missing a page!: Your child’s page on The List (Naughty or Nice) was accidentally shredded, so the elves are trying to put the page back together in time for the holidays!
There is literally a book that will capture any child’s attention and the books are written in a way that makes them perfect for reading to young children as well as just right for readers who are learning to read independently. After going through the options with my little guy, he choose Wanted: The Boy Who Saved the Kingdom and together we were able to customize his book and add his pictures. The minute it arrived, he was taken with the fact that his face is prominently on the cover.
But it only got better! I listened to him giggle as he read aloud and recognized the choices we had selected to make his book just right for him. He had even been able to add his best friend’s name to the story, ensuring that there was a special surprise on just about every page.
I have literally never seen him love reading more than he did when his Kabook! was in his hand and his face was in the story!
