Rated 4 out of 5áby Kimber717 Sweet Book
I like that you can call to further personalize it with a middle name and they were able to write out my son's birthday instead of having it look like just numbers. It came VERY quickly in the mail (maybe a week after I purchased it). The illustrations are colorful, bright and large. I think I would have liked just his first and middle name though since our last name is kind of long and it's not like we really choose that name. Anyway, can't wait to give it to him for Christmas! I loved the back of the book - it has a few pages of a bunch of animals and their pictures with some information about each animal.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CKA13 Wonderful gift!
I have purchased this book for three friends of mine who recently had babies. They all contacted me as soon as it arrived in the mail to tell me what a thoughtful and meaningful gift it is. It is now my go-to gift for new arrivals! :-)

I purchased 2 of these books for newly added members to my family. They are wonderful. Very Colorful and child friendly. To have these personalized and to also add the birthdate makes it very special. Thank you LLBean and please continue bringing these very special items.

Rated 5 out of 5áby codysmama Very cute
I didn't really know what to expect with this book, but I bought it for my nephew anyway. It is a very cute book, but I would recommend using the first and middle name, not the first and last. I guess I didn't realize that the basis of the story was about picking out a unique name for a child, so it makes more sense to use the middle name rather than the last- because mom and dad selected that name and not necessarily the surname. Either way, VERY cute! Can't wait to give it to my nephew for x-mas!

Rated 5 out of 5áby GreenCat Wonderful artwork
I purchased two of these books for my nieces. They have short first & last names, so I called and was able to get them to do their full names (website didn't allow for middle name). The artwork is spectacular! The idea is great. Each book has different animals for the same last name used, so that is good, they can compare animals. I am sure they will love them and feel special that a book is made just for them! My nieces are 5yr. and 2yr. I would guess this would be a good gift for kids up to 10 yr. - Oh and I got books sooner than I had anticipated! Order now if you want for Christmas gifts.

Rated 4 out of 5áby anonymous15 Fine tuning overdue and needed...
The book's contents are excellent however, the personalization of the book can and should be improved. Examples: 1) On the front cover, allow the birth date to be written as July 25, 2011, instead of the current format of 07/25/2011; 2) The issue of not being able to have two capital letters printed in the same name without going through the time consuming process of calling LL Beans Customer Service and then manually requesting the two cap letter need; 3) Allow the gift giver's name to be printed somewhere on the book; that is: Aunt Susie. These changes seem more than reasonable given the day and age in which we live.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Pants Amazing!
I have given this book many times as a baby gift or first Christmas gift. People are always blown away by the quality of this book. The pictures are gorgeous! As some other reviewers stated, I also include the middle name on the first name line. This is an amazing book and I hope LL Bean continues to offer it year-round. Highly, highly recommended!
