Personalized Children's Book Review

KD Novelties sent me another book to review. This one is for my youngest nephew Edison. He'll be getting it for his 2nd birthday. I have gifts for this kid, for the next 3 years I think. ;) Little ones are hard to stop buying, and getting things to review for them. There's so many cute things out there.
KD Novelties makes personalized books, CDs and DVDs. They gave me a book of my choice that's a $13.95 value. They have free priority shipping with orders over $50. I picked Train With No Name for Edison. Our family has a history of loving trains. 
Each grand kid in our family was spoiled with Thomas the Tank Engine. My kids also got into Team GeoTrax, The Little Engine That Could, and Polar Express. It got to the point that when they saw any train, or train set they wanted it. I knew this book would be perfect for my nephew. I also knew my kids would love giving it to him.
The reading level is pretty easy. It's a hardbound 7x9 book, with 32 paper pages. My kids started with fabric and plastic bathtub books. My rule for kids is no paper paged books until they hit the age of 2. Then they have to have supervision to read those books until they are 3. They just want to eat the book, or tear pages.
Both Mica and Isaak loved this book. They thought it was cute. Mica did say, "Hey where's our names?" In their personalized books I put their names, and their cousin's names that are the same age as them. In this book I put Edison's name, and all of his siblings. There are 4 kids in their family.
The story was super cute!

Everybody needs a name, but the smallest engine in the train yard wasn't deemed important enough to have a name or an engineer. That is, until your child steps in and helps the little train save the incoming circus train, making them both the heroes of the day. This educational personalized book teaches children about compassion, helping others and that you don't have to be big to be important!

There's a lot of fun and colorful pictures. Each train has a personality.


The book is easy to order.
  • You pick if you are giving it to a boy or a girl
  • You add in the child's age
  • It asks for their first, middle and last name
  • You put in their hometown, and state
  • You can add in up to 3 friends, or relatives
  • You can write a dedication: Up to 75 characters
I think the book will be a hit! Kids love anything that has their name on it.

My mom wrote children's books for years. I think she enjoyed it and did it for a hobby more than the little bit of money she ever made.

I like the idea of personalizing the book for a kid.

I love the personalized books for my Grandkids. I also love the way their eyes light up when they see their name in a book.

I always loved getting books with my name in them when I was a kid. It really does make the story that much more special when you feel you are a part of it!
