Book2MyKids Review by Christine Hindle

Book2MyKids is a wonderful website where you can write your personal story for your family. They will turn it into a beautiful keepsake quality hardback book for you to give your children and grandchildren.

I was intrigued with the idea of making a history for my children and dived into it with enthusiasm. The website is quite user friendly and even gives you suggestions for chapter titles that help you pinpoint areas that may be of interest to your family. You can easily change these chapter titles if you have something else in mind for your book. You can add pictures to your story too. You can pick the colors, the font and some other aspects of your book. When my book arrived in the mail I was very pleased with the quality of the book. It has nice glossy pages and a lovely cover. There is a picture on the front cover and another one on the back that I chose.

I had a little bit of difficulty at first cutting and pasting information into the book because it never occurred to me to use keystrokes to do this. I am so used to having buttons to click for this! However, I contacted the site owner and he got back to me immediately and helped me out and I was able to get right back into the process. Not only was he quick in responding when I had a question, the shipping was incredibly fast after I placed my order. I didn't have to wait more than a few days to hold my completed book in my hands. This was so much fun and the price is so reasonable that I recommend it to all parents and grandparents. For grandparents especially, what would make a nicer Christmas or birthday gift to give all your family members? This is something they will treasure for a lifetime.
