Review: Twas the Night Before Christmas With My Chronicle Books

Disclaimer:  I was given the products in this post for the purpose of a review. 
I was not paid in any way to write this review.
All opinions are my own.

We all have our holiday traditions and my family is no exception. One of the books that I own and that mommy read is the "Night Before Christmas" by Clement Clark Moore. It has been in our family for quite some time. Mommy decided last year that I was going to get my very own copy in board book format. She ordered it, it arrived and the night before Christmas, mommy sat with me and read it to me. Granted I didn't pay much attention to it but it was the thought that counts. At least that's what I like to tell myself. When I was contacted by My Chronicle Books offering me my very own personalized version of the book making me the center of the story, how could mommy and I refuse. Not only is this great for the Holidays but it's also one of those books that mommy and I think should be in your Holiday reading collection.

Now the original is a classic and one that I enjoy. You know what? The personalized version is even better. I love seeing and hearing my name in print and I know your little ones, and even big ones would enjoy it as well.

Create a unique holiday gift for the special child in your life with this personalized Christmas book! Customize this classic Christmas poem by Clement Clarke Moore with your child’s name, town, favorite pet, and more. Write a special dedication message, upload your holiday photo, and even include your child on Santa’s “Naughty or Nice” list. Children will delight to see themselves in this favorite holiday storybook and hear their names as you read it to them year after year.

$34.99 (25% coupon available for Growing Up Madison Readers) - Perfect for Everyone

Now everyone likes to be the star of their very own story book and My Chronicle Books makes the ordering process so very easy. You can insert your name, your photo, who is going to be with you and even your hometown. There is a preview for every page so you can't go wrong. Even my pet Kitty was involved because she's also part of our family.

It's always nice knowing that you're on Santa's nice list and seeing it on paper makes me believe it even more. The pages are glossy and the illustrations are so beautifully done that you can't help but be amazed. 

Now don't think that because this is personalized that it strays from the original. Au contraire, the story stays very much in line with the book by Mr. Moore. The only difference is that its now all about me. I love it when it's all about me. 

I really love reading my book and having it read to me. Just seeing my photo on the dedication page really made me smile as well. I didn't want mommy even touching my book when it first arrived. This was all about me after all.
