My son and I both love Speedster from I See Me!, and my daughter also enjoys listening as I read the personalized book aloud to her little brother. With a retail value of $34.99, the book features a personalized story complete with customization with a child’s photo. The rhymed text is engaging for young readers from birth through age 8, and the colorful illustrations help bring the fun story to life. I look forward to reading this book with my son again and again. If you are in the market for a special gift for a little boy (or a little girl who loves cars), I highly recommend Speedster from I See Me!.
I love reading books aloud to my two children, and I especially love reading personalized books. My daughter already owns quite the little library of books
