This is the most original and cute present that I have given to Alex so far. I got to know French publishing house Fleurus Éditions while I was in Paris last year. I find their idea of creating personalized books for children truly amazing. Because, who would not love to become the hero of his/ her own book? It is for children between 2-6 years of age but I decided to make it as a gift for Alex because he adores her so much. And when Chloe-Sofia is older, she will enjoy going through the book and reading it herself.
How does it work?
First of all I chose a story on Mon Petit Livre Perso. You can choose between books for girls and boys. There are twelve different stories for boys and four for girls (Playing Teacher, Playing Princess, Playing With a Doll, Making Dinner).
Once I knew which story I wanted to personalize, I selected photos of Chloe-Sofia. I recommend choosing high-quality photos with white background since it will make the whole editing process more simple.
Finally, I added Chloe-Sofia’s name, day of birth and color of her skin (so that color of her hands in the book is the same) and uploaded her photo. Afterwards you can adjust your child’s face in the editor on the website. It is very easy. All you need to do is follow step by step tutorial that guides you through the whole process. When you are done, you can personalize each page of the book. And voilà, you have your own personalized book!
I must say that this was the present that made Alex the most happy. I really recommend trying it out. If you don’t have a baby, you can do it for a friend or a family member as a surprise. I bet that they will love it!
