I bought several of these books for gifts. I could not be more pleased. The child's name is throughout the book. The dedication page is especially nice. The story is captivating. The children that I bought them for, and their parents, loved them!
Received my personalized book, Very First Christmas, for my grandson's first Christmas. I was looking for a special way for him to remember this day, this was just what I wanted. Thought it was so special to create the character, mention his name throughout the book and sign it from his Nana and Trepop. What a unique idea. Love the book and hope my grandson loves it in the years to come. Thanks again Hallmark!
The choices to personalize were very specific; the child looks just like a cartoon image of my little neighbor I bought it for. His parents will be thrilled. The book is nice and big and sturdy. It came in perfect condition. It seems the complaints in other reviews about tattered edges has been resolved. This personalized book for Christmas will be my go-to gift for toddlers from now on! I hope Hallmark continues to carry it!
I received the book last week and it's so sweet it made me cry to see my little guy's name in it. He's 4 months old and this will be his first Christmas so we wanted to start the tradition of reading it to him every year. Nice quality. Would definitely recommend.
This book was purchased as a keepsake for our first grandchild. The top corners of the cover and book were bent and a little worn. Otherwise, the quality was good. I would have preferred a sliding scale to select hair, skin, and eye type and color. Selected color and type options not good matches for our grandchild. Also would have been nice to change the skin, hair, and eye color of Mary and Joseph to make them ethnic to match our granchild. Otherwise, the personalization was a winner.
