    My very own pirate tale
    Review by Amanda A
    I was very impressed with the quality of the book and the bandana keepsake. I haven't given the book to my son as of yet but it will work fantastic with the pirate theme of his birthday party. He will also be wearing the bandana that day. I'm sure he;ll love it as I do. Arrgg :)
    Outstanding and memorable gift!
    Review by Jennifer
    I gave this as a first birthday gift to a friend's child and it was fantastic! Parents loved it and child wore the pirate bandana while reading the story. FYI-I opted to pay extra for the bandana with his name on it. What a wondeful keepsake for the child...and what child wouldn't want to read a story with their name in it! I highly recommend this as a gift to someone special in your life.

    Review by Carol S.
    This was for a grandson's birthday and he loved it. Not only was his name in the book, but he enjoys the sea and all the fish. Learning more about the different sea creatures is an added bonus.
    ♥ the book and bandana!
    Review by Trista Sutter
    The kids LOVE their Cap'n bandanas & www.iseeme.com books!
    Absolutely love the bandana and book!!
    Review by Haily
    I ordered this gift set for my nephew. He's 1 year old and he absolutely loves the bandana. Although he's too young to understand the words on the book but yet it's the book he picks up every night for his bedtime story
    My Very Own Pirate Tale
    Review by Lois Echols
    I love the idea of personalized books, and this was a cute story. However, I am disappointed in the way the letter J is made. Since my grandson's name is James that letter is on every page. I taught school for 20 years and I have never seen an upper case J made the way it is in the book. I'm afraid my grandson won't even understand that this was supposed to be a J, not an l(L). This is not cursive or manuscript style. It is not DeNealian nor Zaner-Bloser style. There is no line across the top of the J, nor is there a hook at the bottom of any length. It looks like a shakily drawn lower case l instead of a J.

    Review by Sandra
    This is our 2nd book from this company for our grandson. The first book has created a bedtime ritual before saying "goodnight." Our grandson just visited LegoLand, Sea World and has decided his favorite character is a Pirate. (Perfect timing for the book.) The fact pages in the back of the book with photos and descriptions of ocean animals... is such a great resource. We highly recommend this product and company to everyone. The stories and illustrations are awesome. Great job I See Me!

    THE Cutest Pirate Book
    Review by Hayden
    My 5 year old little birthday boy absolutely loves this personalized Pirate themed book. He loves seeing his photo in the front of the book and seeing his name spelled out. What a awesome book for children learning to read and write their names. Great illustrations and the pirate bandana is awesome!

    This book is amazing! My son received as a surprise from his school teacher after being out of school due to his illness. These books are a wonderful idea and is a great learning experience. Thank you!
    Highly recommend!

    I am so pleased with the quality of this book and highly recommend this company to everyone. A personalized story book is something that a child will remember for years. I am 34 and still remember how special my personalized book was to me.

    The pirate book is charming! My grandson enjoys tales of the sea and pretending to be a pirate. This book is thoughtful, interactive, and so engaging for a five year old!

    Personalized Pirate book was very well received by our 7 year old grandson and the bandana was an added surprise. Good story line appropriate for older kids (Older than toddlers)
    Beautiful Quality!
    Review by Ashley Gonsalves
    I purchased both the 'My Very Own Pirate Tale' as well as the 'My Very Own Fairy Tale' for my nieces and nephew this Christmas and they were such a hit! The quality of the books is phenomenal, they are beautifully crafted and I am certain they will be a nice personalized gift that will last years to come. I look forward to purchasing even more of these books in the future. Well done 'I See Me'!

    My Very Own Pirate Tale
    Review by Jennifer G.
    I was very pleasantly surprised with this book! Marketing usually does a great job making things look better in print than in person but not this time; it was great! My 5 year old loves seeing his name in print, the story is fun and it's so well done. The bandana is a nice touch as well and very good quality! We're all very happy with this purchase.
    Absolutely love it
    Review by Kim A
    My two year old got this for Christmas and loves that he is part of the story. He gets excited when he hears his own name in it. I dedicated it to him from Santa so I know he will enjoy this dedication as well as he gets older.
    Love the Pirate Tale
    Review by Lisa
    Someone had given my now 7 year old son one of your books when he was an infant. I knew that I needed one for my 3 year old son to have his own special story, too. He LOVED seeing himself be a part of his very own pirate tale. He keeps saying with each turn of the page, "that's me, A for Aaron". The personalized bandana is a cute touch, too! These are books that my children will hopefully treasure forever.
    He loved it!
    Review by Jessica W
    My nephew loved his book and bandana, and insisted that the book be read to him several times, ignoring many other Christmas presents strewn around the floor. Great gift.

    Review by Emily W
    My nephew loved his Pirate book and his bandana. We read it over and over! It made a great gift.
    My Very Own Pirate
    Review by Mr. Mark
    This book made my neighbor's 4 year old son's Christmas ! His face lit up as soon as he opened the package and placed the bandana on his head. My neighbor couldn't thank me enough. The book was nicely done and definitely got the attention of the little boy.
    Beautifully done!
    Review by Alexandra
    The quality of this book is exceptional. The story is cute and I love the thoughtfulness that each sea creature was chosen to represent each letter in the child's name. My little nephew has a new fascination with pirates and hope this inspires him even more!
    Would recommend this to anyone!
    Review by Tanya K.
    I purchased the pirate book with custom bandana for my 3 year old grandson.The story, letters with individual definitions and colors are vivid and wonderful. I would recommend this to anyone looking for that perfect and individualized gift for young ones.
    HUGE hit!!!!
    Review by Aunt Teresa
    My first impression when I opened the package was...wow, this is pretty cool! The girls at the office gathered around & 2 of them were browsing the website before lunch.

    The book is beautiful...beautifully colored, written & put together. The bandana was awesome...my nephew's name was machine embroidered on it...wasn't expecting that kind of quality.

    I'm in Florida & Tyler is in Ohio so I didn't get to see him open it :-( but I heard it went from...Awww, she sent me a book...to...OMG! SHE'S THE BEST AUNT RESA EVER!!!!

    Yes, yes Tyler...I am the best Aunt Resa ever! (with a little help from iseeme)
