About Our Products
What is the book about?
The First Adventures of Incredible You is a delightful, rhyming personalized children's book about the everyday experiences and sensations of a young child. From splashing in rain puddles to cheering on a favorite team to smelling a favorite family food, the personalized storybook tells the story of this child's first several years of life. By adding the names of special people and places in the child's life to these universal experiences, the special child in your life will believe The First Adventures of Incredible You was written especially for him or her. The hardcover book is approximately 11 inches by 8.75 inches (landscape) in size and has 32 pages of full color illustrations (16 of which contain text).

Yes. We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Our aim is to uphold your reputation for giving extra special gifts and to provide a distinctive keepsake that will be cherished for a lifetime. We are very confident that our personalized storybooks will become a family favorite -- so order now -- there is no risk at all!
What if the information I entered turns out to be incorrect?
Please check and re-check the information you have selected for placement in the personalized children's book. If you are unsure of the accuracy of the information, please use the default options we have provided. Once we receive the order, we create the personalized storybook around the special information you have provided. If the information we receive is incorrect, we will have to start the entire process over to create the book with a completely new order.
What if the child's name is longer than the maximum number of letters allowed in the book?
You may use up to 34 characters to spell out the child's full name in the opening page of the personalized book. The reason for the limit is so that the words of the personalized children's book fit properly on the page. Exceeding the number of characters allowed would compromise the look of the personalized storybook. Our goal is to provide you with the most professional, highly customized personalized children's book possible. If your child's full name exceeds the limit, we suggest using the child's first and last names only in order to meet the space requirements. If you are not satisfied with this solution please
or call us at 1-866-360-4546.
Does the book work for adopted children ?
Yes, of course. We were very careful to word our opening pages to ensure the story would work for adopted children. Our personalized children's book does discuss the child's birth date as we assume the parent(s) have designated a certain date for celebrating the child's birthday even if the actual date of birth is unknown. The custom storybook describes the birth date as the date the child "arrived" on the earth. The personalized children's book also mentions "the day you came through the front door" (but there is no reference to the child being an infant), so it works for a child of any age.
Will our personalized children's book work for all types of families?
Yes. One of our goals was to make this personalized children's book applicable to any family. We have made it easy to specify the child's special name(s) for the parent(s)/ guardian(s) throughout the custom storybook so that any type of family structure may be represented.
What if I don't know answers to some of the questions on the order form?
Even if you only know the child's name and birth date you can create a wonderful gift that is already as customized as other books on the market. We have provided default options for most questions on the order form in the event that you do not know certain pieces of information about the family. We do encourage you however, to answer as many questions as possible. You may be surprised at how much you do know and how easy it is to create a truly unique, personalized children's book that the child and his or her parents will treasure for many years to come.
What if the child has more than one sibling and I would like to include all of the siblings in the book?
In order to have this personalized children's book remain professional looking and to allow the rhyming verse to flow properly, we have limited the number of names you may mention in most passages to one. However, there are 3 different passages where a sibling's name may be used (e.g., the park, the rain and the bath scenes) so you may make a point of using the names of 3 different siblings in each of these passages.
Will the book work for twins?
This personalized storybook is intended to be a very special gift for ONE child -- given that the book is all about that particular child's life. Because there are character restrictions in place so that our personalized children's book remains professional looking and spaced properly -- it will be very difficult to include the full names of both twins in one book (and to make the book flow properly). If you would like to order only one book for twins -- please call us at 1-866-360-4546 to discuss your options.
Can the same family order this personalized children's book for more than one child in their family?
Yes. Each custom storybook has the same illustrations and essentially the same text, but you may distinguish the books from each other by varying the customized information as much as possible. This is a keepsake book that each child will want to have as a memento of his or her early childhood years.
What if the parents of the child receiving the book are divorced?
Each family has different circumstances surrounding divorce and those circumstances may affect the way you want the book to read. Please call us at 1-866-360-4546 so we can discuss which pages of the book involve the parents' names and together we can figure out the best way to include personalized information about the parents so that it reads correctly for your particular family.
What if I need a gift sooner than the promised delivery date?
