How old should a child be for Let’s Read About Me books?
Let’s Read About Me books are perfect for children ages 0-6.

As early as the first few weeks of life, babies should be read to regularly. Reading to infants helps them begin building language development skills which is the foundation for all literacy skills. It also fosters a love for reading and talking about books. New parents can have books ready and waiting for their new baby. Choose the “Who Loves” book and include a picture of the people who will be most involved in the baby’s life. Or, pick the “A La Carte” book and design a book with a simple text for each page like “my mommy,” “my puppy,” “my bed,” etc., or just “mommy,” “puppy,” “bed,” etc.

When toddlers are around, a household can get pretty active. These little guys are moving around and exploring everything in their world. Reading at this stage is critical to continue language skill development and is a favorite activity for many youngsters. Let’s Read About Me books will make reading together even more special! Parents can read and talk about things that are specifically related to the child’s life, family, friends, and experiences. Select the “Where Is” book to spotlight all the places the toddler is learning about. Or, build a “Favorite Things” book that will encourage conversation about the favorite things in the child’s daily life.

Pre-School Children
As children begin preparing for more formal education, they will be able to attend to more details within the text. Let’s Read About Me allows parents to build books that not only continue to support developing reading skills but also provide practice with other concepts, such as counting. Parents can build a “Counting” book or other titles that will highlight the child’s life like “Helping.”

What do customers say about Let's Read About Me?
My daughter has two of Let's Read About Me books, and they are awesome!!!!
-Roy, Texas

...the printing is very high quality and even the smaller, Just My Size Book appears to be very durable. The pictures and words are clean and legible by all, so everyone from your beginning reader to their grandparents should be able to read these great books. In my opinion, books from Let’s Read About Me are printed on top notch paper, contain crisp photos that you provide, and contain stories or words that you want your child to learn because you wrote them. And who cuter to be the characters in your stories but your very own children, right? You can even put an image on the back cover too!
-Jill, California

When Max first saw his books with his picture on it, he kept saying, "That's me Mommy! That's me!" When we read it for the first time, he got so excited to see the pictures, his pictures. We've had the book for less than a week, and Max takes charge when reading it. He points at the pictures and tells us what's he doing. The sentences are short and predictable, and my 3 year old picked up on it, and it makes reading his book so fun for him.
-Jennifer, Washington

...I love Let's Read About Me. You can put in your own pictures and personalize it just for your beginning reader. It's a book just about them. It also doubles as a memory book. And it makes a great gift (with a 100% money-back guarantee if you don't like it). It's BRILLIANT I tell you.

Can my organization work with Let’s Read About Me for a fundraiser?

How does “Buy a Book – Donate a Book” work?
One of the goals of Let’s Read About Me is for ALL young children to have hours of happy reading. We want to provide books to youngsters who have few or no books in their homes so they will have the same early benefits as the children who have grown up with many literacy experiences. For every book that is purchased, Let’s Read About Me will donate a book. We are working with several organizations to reach children in different parts of the country and for American teachers to use during the summer when they travel to other countries to work with teachers and students who have very few books in their schools and homes. The donated books will be from a special set of titles designed to help young children build their early reading skills. Unfortunately, the books will not be customized, but WILL maintain the same critical attributes for beginning readers and will be produced in the “Just My Size” format using durable, synthetic paper.

What if my pictures are not properly rotated or aligned?
When your pictures are uploaded to our server, they will appear as they do on your computer. If you would like for us to crop or rotate any picture that you have uploaded, pelase contact us.
