Our Best-selling Personalized Book ''When Emma Grows Up'' Soon Available from Dad's Point of View
Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad. Therefore, we have been creating a special and unique personalized children's book for those with everlasting bonds - dads and their little ones.
We may have put moms front and center in the past, but dads – you were in our minds all along. After having sold more than 500,000 ''When Emma Grows Up'' personalized children's books worldwide and receiving nearly the same number of questions like Michael's here: ''I was trying to create a personalized book for me and my son, but how do I change to Dad and customize him? I only see how to customize Mom,'' we swiftly jumped on a mission sporting the working title: Grows up 3.0 – Daddy Edition #daddyedition.
As a team of attentive and creative souls, we are always striving to deliver our best and we wouldn't settle for anything less than the equivalents of overwhelming comments from moms, such as: ''[My son and daughter] were mesmerized, and over the course of a day, they must have asked at least half a dozen times to read their story. It melted my heart!''

What does the dad say?
The whole creative process has therefore indeed been a wild ride. Are you up for a short tour of how we adapted the upcoming personalized children's book for dads and their little ones? Then buckle up! To begin with, all texts had to be switched to dad mode. You know how dads are – tough on the outside and gentle on the inside, and most importantly they tell things, well, differently than moms do. The most frequently pondered question at that point was whether or not certain lines were something dads would say. And who better to ask than the author of the texts himself, who is also a father to a 7-year-old girl? And of course, he had the help of a few other Hooray Heroes too. Reading, rereading, correcting, swapping words and rhymes, changing the word order and bam, it was a wrap.
Nope, unfortunately not a chicken wrap and certainly not an overall personalized-children's-book-Daddy-Edition wrap. Dad's version of the book wouldn't exactly make sense without dad’s portrayal, would it? Check out the illustrations below to see how the shape of dad’s face and his hair styles and colors, complete with facial hair – to name just a few of his features – came to life.
If you thought we didn't think of dad’s clothes, footwear, the look in his eyes and his overall quirkiness, well, you thought wrong. Unfortunately, we can't reveal it all to you just now.
In addition to the obvious and most significant change for our first personalized children's book for dads where dad becomes the narrator, we have another surprise for you:
We'll be adding exciting, new stories – 3 of them, to be precise: a basketball player, a park ranger and an archaeologist – to the 24 existing ones. Whoa, this comes to 27 stories altogether and will complicate your selection. But have no fear, we're talking of sweet worries, because just think how much fun you’ll have choosing between all the options as you try to settle on your top 10.
What’s behind our illustrations?
The illustrations complementing the new stories in the personalized book are literally works of art and each of them has an intriguing background. The park ranger was inspired by our illustrator's visit to a few American national parks, and Yosemite is even in the very illustration. The basketball player portrays characteristics of the best the world’s ever seen: a one-hand dunker who had a hard time keeping his tongue in his mouth and his feet on solid ground, as if floating through the ''Air''. Do you know who we’re talking about? The resemblance is uncanny, isn't it? Oh, and as for the archaeologist, it all started with the idea of the owner's niece's obsession with pharaohs, but we ended up adding that mystical touch with a hint of Maya civilization. How many of their symbols and artifacts can you spot?
The best features in our best-selling personalized children's book still remain the best!
So, you will still be able to:
• choose the name, gender and appearance of your child
• choose the name and appearance of dad
• choose your 10 favorite stories from a collection of 27 to create the content of the book
• choose a personal dedication or write one yourself
