MOMMY MONDAY: I SEE ME BOOKS+GIVEAWAY Posted on April 3, 201725 Comments

***We were provided a personalized I See Me book in exchange for this review. No other compensation was provided. The opinion are honest and completely ours. ***

This spring had me wondering: what do you put in an Easter basket for a baby? Aksel cannot eat candy. He has everything he could ever need, courtesy of Granny and Papa. What else could I possibly give him?

I began thinking about memories. Our family takes pictures of absolutely everything because we love to cherish the moment. A night out? A pretty cupcake? Pictures will capture the moment, the creation, and the memory. But what is a gift that could create a moment worth cherishing?

I See Me provides customizable books for children.  When I found out about these, I knew this would be the perfect gift for a few different reasons.

The Perfect Gift for Many Reasons

First, it is personal. I was able to write my own dedication inside for Aksel to read someday and know how much we have always loved him. How great for a little one to have a reminder of how much you love them.

Second, it makes it interesting. Reading is the pinnacle of learning, and how cool is it to start with a book written about you? It is such an awesome way to get your little one to want to pick up a book! I cannot wait to hear Aksel read out loud, “A is for Aksel.”

Third, it can teach character and academics. In the book I got Aksel, it uses noble characteristics and ideas to teach kids the alphabet with personalized and colorful pictures that will keep them engaged!

Fourth, it looks good in the basket. Okay, maybe this is not a reason to consider incorporating I See Me into your Easter, but for you picture-fanatic family, this was definitely an added bonus!

Finally, and most importantly, it creates memories. Reading with your little one, even from infancy, is a way to connect and lead your child and to spend time with them. There is nothing like the memory of curling up in bed each night with your child to read with them and such them in. And what better way to start such a tradition than with I See Me books this Easter. I know I am.

Easter baskets can be difficult to put together, but with I See Me, I have definitely put the “wow” factor in Aksel’s first Easter. And I have created a memory and keepsake that will last forever!


How would you like to have an I See Me book for your little one? It would be a great addition to any Easter Basket. The nice people at I See Me have decided to provide Fantastic Mrs. Mom with a personalized book to give away to one of our readers. I know this would make a sweet addition to your little bunny’s basket.
