I know it's a little late to order one of these books for Christmas this year, but they would make a great gift for any kid that loves a dog. The bond between a kid and their dog is like no other, and this personalized book from i see Me! celebrates that bond in a unique way.
We have a house filled with kids and dogs, so obviously I was drawn to this book. I was really hoping that it looked as good in person as it did on the the company's website. As you'll see in this video review, it did!
Due to the personalization options, this book is more expensive than most traditional children's picture books. Is it worth the extra cost? Let's find out!

If My Dog Could Talk Personalized Picture Book Review
As you can see, the illustrations are humorous and use bright colors that will attract your children to flip through the pages. We made this book about our little Beagle, Molly. It came with a poster with her name on it and a bandana with her name embroidered on it.
There are 12 illustrated dog styles to choose from and each is available in 5 colors. The personalization can include your dog's name and the names of up to 4 friends and family members who love your pooch. You can also send in two color photos of your pet and the child you're making the book for.
In my video review you can see that one of your photos is featured in both the front and back of the book. Our kids really enjoyed seeing the pictures of Molly in the book. It was also exciting for the kids to see their names written into the illustrations on almost every page of If My Dog Molly Could Talk.
While this is a beautiful book that your children will be able to save as a keepsake, it's understandably more expensive than a traditional children's picture book. Keep in mind that it is personalized, and it does have a durable hard cover. You can purchase the book from the i see Me! website for $30.
Personally, I think it's well worth the money. I know I'll be keeping this book in our childrens' memory box and pulling it out to show the grandkids! The company also offers many other personalized books, which you can find by perusing their site.
