My Amazing Alphabet Adventures
Beyond My Expectations!
I received my book a few days ago and by the time I turned the third page, I already had the biggest smile on my face and was so impressed with the attention to detail! I have been making personalized photo books as gifts for years, but my busy schedule makes it harder and harder these days. I ordered this book as a gift for my three year old granddaughter based on the glowing reviews on this website and I couldn't be happier with the final product! I brought it to work to show all my co-workers, and they all LOVED it! I wish I could get a commission for everyone who orders one after seeing mine! One co-worker has already ordered one for her granddaughter, and many others have asked for the information to order for their little loved ones! This is going to be a Valentine's Day gift for my granddaughter. I only hope I can wait to give it to her! I can't wait to see the expression on her face when she sees her own face on every page...each one a different adventure! What an amazing gift...and keepsake! Thank you Shutterfly! I LOVE IT!!!!!

I bought two of these alphabet books for relatives and couldn't be happier! They are super clever and the photos, birthday, and hometown are incorporated very well. The photos are cropped perfectly around the face and hair, and as another reviewer mentioned, it really isn't that obvious that each page has the same photo since the scenes use the photos so well. One of the photos I submitted wasn't straight on (it was the best I had) and I was so impressed - I compared it to the other book I got (which used a picture that was straight on) and the creators/editors actually flipped some pictures in the book to make the scenes look as good as possible with the angle of the photo. This is probably my favorite gift to be giving this Christmas and was a great deal!

I ordered my grandson the SpongeBob book for his birthday! He loves it. It is great quality. The one picture fits in well throughout the book. He will cherish it for years! Great quality and value!

We gave this book to my daughter for Christmas last year and it was a huge hit! I love all the personalized books, but this one is special because there is no other character- the child is the only star:) Very creative book! We will be ordering one for my nephew as well.

Amazing book that will keep their attention.
My two year old daughter received this book as a Christmas gift from her aunt and uncle. She loves the book and gets so excited when she sees her own picture. Having the pictures of all the things that start with the letter is a great way to teach her the alphabet. I am considering getting the Dora book for her soon.

A is for Absolutely Amazing
Fantastic! I give it 10 stars! Love the way they incorporated childs name throughout the book...beats having to make one yourself. A little worried that its binding is glued and not stitched. Hopefully it will hold up.

I ordered this for my cousin for her 2nd birthday. She is absolutely going to love this. Her picture is on every page. Her name is also incorporated into the story line. On various pages she is driving a car, speed skating, and riding a yak. We think it is going to be the best gift at her party. It is a great gift for the kid who already has everything!

Can't say enough good things about this book!!!!
We LOVE this book!!!!! It's perfect and looks so real!!! My son LOVES IT!!! Great book... The only thing I would have to say about it is the price is a little steap. I had some coupon codes that made it a little more reasonable. I will be making more of these for family soon!

Great product. Highly recommended!
This book is really great! I was debating because of the price but after finally seeing the finished product, I'm so glad I bought it.
For each letter of the alphabet, my baby's face shows up but they're not just plopped in. They're actually cleverly incorporated into each picture, varying in different sizes and settings. It's surprisingly not as obvious that they're all the same one photo. The stories that go with each letter are cute too.
I'm positive my baby will love this book once he starts reading. I just hope the binding will last long enough for me to save it as a keepsake.

A Worthwhile Investment
-Holds the attention of my child. He wants to look at the pictures and talk about it because he's in it. Developmentally, it appropriately appeals to his self-centeredness.
-Each alphabet letter has multiple picture objects beginning with that letter, i.e. "R" has a picture of a rhino, rabbit, raccoon, and robot. Great for my child who is just learning the alphabet.
-Each alphabet letter has a paragraph with words beginning with that letter, beyond just the pictures. The sentences are engaging and a little complex, which will be useful when my child learns to read. It also asks a question so that my child will think, i.e. "Who will win win the race?"
-Pictures appear gender-neutral so that a girl or boy would look natural, i.e. in a hot air balloon.
-Quality paper and sturdy hardcover book.
I wasn't sure about this book because of the price. We have multiple alphabet books at home that are not personalized. However, my 2-year-old asks for THIS book almost every night. He is fascinated to see himself in various "places" i.e. outer space, swimming with dolphins. It's made teaching the alphabet easier.
I also had my friend, who is a teacher, review this book and she thought it was a great book he could grow into.
Overall, it's a worthwhile investment.
p.s. One person asked if you can put multiple children in one book. The answer is no. There seems to be a considerable amount of personalized cropping for each picture so that the picture of a child looks natural.

A book to love for a lifetime!
A beautiful book and lots of fun! I bought this six years ago for my daughter. She was thrilled to see herself in print! To this day, this is a favorite book that she enjoys reading and sharing!

I was VERY impressed with the quality of this book! It greatly exceeded my expectations. They not only did a great job cropping my daughter's head (with her long hair), but they also added multiple personalized touches throughout the story and photos. Great Job!

What a great customized book. Every page is a surprise of fun! Great for toddlers through readers. My grandson is only 17 months old but loves the photos of himself and the big alphabet letters. He will be reading this book for years to come. A great investment.

This book is awesome and so worth the money! It has so much thought and detail put into it! My daughter loves looking at the pictures and listening to me read it to her. It is kind of lengthy going through the whole alphabet, but she is so engaged in it because she is the main character and she can see herself in the pictures! It helps with learning the alphabet and some parts even rhyme. I love how personalized everything in it is! It would make a great gift too! I am so glad I purchased this book and I will defiantly be buying some of the other personalized books as well!
