My Adventure on Sesame Street
My daughter loves her book!
We got this book for a Christmas gift for our daughter when she was about 18 months old. She was and still is in love with Sesame Street. She got so many gifts from so many people but this one was her favorite. She's already a book lover, and we want to make sure we nurture that trait, so we got this book to help keep her excitement for reading fresh. She still wants us to read this book to her at least once a week, and she even has a lot of the book memorized herself. It's also helped her learn letters. The quality is absolutely wonderful. Even though my daughter had very short hair at the time we made this book I don't think it made her look like a boy (as I've read in other reviews). I would recommend this to anyone, we've even already made the other Sesame Street book for her birthday!

I had no idea this book would be so amazing and so personalized. Our son's picture was incorporated on every page and image. The storyline was again so personalized. I cannot also believe the quality of the book - the pages, the pictures. Everything about this is top notch. Our 18 month old loves this book on top of it all and will sit through the entire book. Absolutely amazing! Worth every penny!

Worth every penny!
I ordered this book for my 20-month-old son... It surpassed my expectations! I was SO pleased that I even immediately ordered another copy with my nephew's picture for a Christmas gift. The story text is a little advanced at this time for my son, but he LOVES looking for his photo on each page and we talk about all the customized pictures related to the first letter of his name. Very well made. Worth the price!

I purchased this book for my nephew's 2nd birthday. The personalization in this book is so much more than I expected, I LOVE IT! I know my nephew will love reading his name and seeing his face in this book. Very creative - a great gift for any child!

I LOVE THIS BOOK - perfect quality (paper, illustrations), size of the book, story, my child’s picture and name are on every page, pictures are so fun. I can’t wait to give it to my child as her birthday gift. She will be happy. Great idea. Great book.

Very impressed with the quality!
Just got my book in the mail and WOW! The picture and info was incorporated so seamlessly into the book. Can't wait to give it to my niece. It's one of the nicest customized books I've seen. Getting the right photo is key though, so definitely spend some time and effort into getting a straight one view of his/her face. I think I took 50 pics to make sure I had a good one.
I had a coupon, otherwise not sure I would have spent almost $50 on it, but it is super cute.

This book is SOOO well worth the money. Jon's name & picture is on the front and back covers and many pages within the book. So many details have been thought of and implemented throughout! Jon's book features the letter 'J' and the number '13', his birth date. I had no idea it would be like that when I ordered it, so I was pleasantly surprised. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!

So happy about this book, that I bought for my great nephew. It is absolutely adorable. Amazed how many times his picture appears throughout the book.

In love with my nephew's book!
I just received my Sesame Street book and it is perfect! I am so in love with it and I'm sure my Elmo-loving nephew will love it also! Definitely WAS NOT a waste of money you will love it!

I snagged a half-price deal on this book on LivingSocial and just received the finished product. It is absolutely adorable and I know my son (almost 3) will just LOVE it. They do such a good job plunking your child's face into the story, and then customizing the story itself so that his/her birthday and the first letter of his/her name are integral. He knows all of the Sesame Street characters and I can't wait to see his reaction when we read it! If I had one complaint, it is that the story is LONG (40 pages with lots of text) -- I don't think he will sit still for the whole thing, and I don't want to delay bedtime for 20 minutes to read it. I would definitely buy another one of these for a gift, and/or with some of the other characters, like Dora and Diego.

This book is ADORABLE and altogether PERFECT!
I ordered this book using my Pampers Gifts to Grow Points for my daughter's 2nd birthday. It came in the mail today and it was more than I had expected. Oh it is the most adorable book I have ever seen and I cant wait to see my daughter's eyes light up when she sees herself on Sesame Street with Elmo and the rest of the gang. This book will definitely be one to cherish!!!!

With my little Elmo fanatic turning 3, I knew I hit a home run with this gift. But I never imagined it being such a hit. My son loves it! He enjoyed pointing himself throughout the book and by the end of the story he was overjoyed that he was the one who saved the day along side his favorite characters. The book is amazing quality and has a great story line. I couldn't be happier with it!

I was so pleased about the book, what a cute story too! I would say choosing the right picture is key. My son's picture had slight shadows on it and that concerned me, but it actually made it more natural-looking in the book. It's not always easy to get a good shot of a 2.5 year old! I wouldn't even consider using my daughter's (8 mo. old) as she has no hair and it would have made her look like a boy...obviously! The book is great but if you don't choose the right photo you may be disappointed --as in other reviews--that's not Shutterfly's fault. Try it again and I bet you will be surprised.

Bought this book for my son for his first birthday, he is now 6 and still loves reading the book and looking at his pictures. He reads this book to his one year old brother who also loves Sesame Street.

This is not the book to order if you have a little girl with very short hair.

I have already made 2 of these, one for my son, and one for my nephew. It has been a super-hit on both occasions. My now 7 year old son still fondly goes through the pages of the book that I made for him when he was 2. For a long time he believed that he actually went to Sesame Street. It is amazing what they can do with just one picture. Yes, it is pricey, but it's worth every penny, and way better than any other book that claims to be personalized.
