The First Adventures of Incredible You
written by Sarah Riley Headrick and Sarah Foreman Rivera
illustrated by Jill Dryer Bartolucci
Three kids, seven years of motherhood and this is my first custom book! We’re very fond of reading in this house, granted the reading time seems to get squeezed tight lately but nonetheless, we do make our daily time to read.
Storybooks figure prominently but there’s nothing like a book that has your very own name, your siblings names, places you go and things you like to eat and see. Girl2004 was thrilled to see her name in lights and boy2001 and girl2006 were just as excited at the mention of their name in the story.
On top of that the illustrations are amazing, vibrant and colorful. The thing I most like is the multicultural aspect of the book. Most of the characters are colorful animals but there are human figures that cleverly appear in shadow, or with backs turned making this the perfect gift for any family you know.
The process @ Custom Made Kids is simple, just go to the website and carefully answer the questions about siblings, parents, dates of birth, etc… We received our book within days of order but that might not always be the case.
The First Adventures of Incredible You is carried at Pottery Barn Kids and at Custom Made for Kids.
