Discover the most personalized children's books, ever!

At Read Your Story, we create made-to-order books that are uniquely personalized to your child, meaning they feature your child's name and face throughout the story! Imagine the delight your child will feel when they see their custom book, made especially for them! Our books also offer other special personalized touches, such as a free dedication that you can include at the end of your book. Additionally, some book titles offer the opportunity to include photos of friends and family members, which your child will see when they are reading their story.

We work solely with vetted (and in many instances, award-winning) children's book authors and illustrators to ensure that we are able to produce engaging, high caliber, personalized children's stories. Our customized books are also the recipients of several awards, such as the Mom's Gold Choice Award®.

We print our books using the highest quality materials, such as PUR glue—a strong and flexible binding agent, perfect for children's books!—and thick, heavy acid-free paper so that your pages won't fade over time.

Order a personalized children's book with confidence. Create a book with just a name and a photo, and preview the entire book for free, before you purchase. Once we receive an order, it goes through two manual touch points to ensure the photo is meticulously placed in the book and that there are no spelling errors in the dedication. We strive for perfection to make sure every customer is 100% satisfied with their book.

We're Donna and Jeanette, two moms on a mission to create the most personalized children's books, ever! The idea for a personalized book came to Jeanette when she discovered her fascinated one and a half year old daughter perusing a book of pictures, filled with people whom she didn't know. Jeanette had an "ah ha" moment and thought children's books could be much more engaging if they were filled with photos of someone her daughter recognized—herself! And so, the idea for a personalized children's book, featuring the child's name and face throughout, came to be born.

We warmly welcome you to Read Your Story and encourage you to browse through our selection of personalized children's books. Create magic today and make a custom book for your child in just a few clicks!
