flattenme Personalize Pirates Book Review

flattenme was created due to imagination, inspiration and gifts of the heat. They want to do more then just sparking the imagination of a child, they want to take a story which starts as a moment in time as a photograph and then becomes something entirely new.

Personalized Pirates Book

Flattenme's personalized Pirates book ($29.95/paperback-$39.95/hard cover ARV) is absolutely awesome! Not only is it personalized with your child's name, but also their face!? No way, hey? Well, YES way! This awesome Pirates book is an 8 X 11 custom keepsake storybook perfect for any little boy or even a little girl who loves Pirates in your life. There is no other Pirates book that I've found any how that comes close to this, it is unique, full of bright and crystal clears photos, including your child's photos and contains a great story for you to read to your child or even vise versa. We aren't quite there yet.

This book is both imaginative and educational all in one, it is a personalized book that transforms your child's experience of reading from a passive page-turner to an active participant. So of the great graphics in this story book include enchanted forests, talking goblins and even fellow kiddy pirate crew, all of this is the help enhance this great reading experience for your child. Cade's photo is featured seven times through out this book. This book is recommended for boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 8 years old and is available in eight different languages!

Cade absolutely love his personalized children's Pirates book. He loves pirates, books and was completely thrilled to see himself on the cover of the book. Boy was it a great surprise as we read through the book and he seen himself on seven pages. Every time we read this book he loves to point out where he is on each page and helps narrate the story, based on what the pages graphics show. The story in this book is fun and packed with action, making it a great attention grabber and also holds their attention. With some other books Cade tends to watch tv or talk about off topic things while I try to continue to read whatever book it may be. Ezio is only 2 years old, however he really likes this book as well and while his vocabulary is pretty much non-existent I believe he should recognize that this is in deed his brother, Cade, through out the book as well as on the cover.

Of course, my miss Jedilynn is jealous and wants her own personalized Princess book with her picture and not just her name. She finds this book absolutely awesome and inquired on how they got Cade into the book. It's pretty interesting having a conversation with children about something like this and hearing from their perspective just how their brains work. They are fairly complex if you pay attention to them and think about how they see it and try to do the same.

We love our Flattenme Personalized Pirates book and I will be getting at least two more in the future for Jedilynn and Ezio. This book makes a great bedtime story with all three of my children huddled around me to see the photos of Cade and follow along with the graphics that are coordinated with the story very well.
