This brand-new personalized book is the best gift for Dads to give this Mother’s Day. The illustrations treat Mom to the glitz and glamour she deserves, and you and your kiddo narrate its cute, loving stories. Read on for more details about how the book was made and how you can create this amazing gift!
Our Books Have Made Millions Cry
Have any of your previous gifts for the Mommy in your life got a reaction like this? Our books do it all the time. With Mother’s Day fast approaching, we’re proud to give you an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek at how we applied our tear-jerking recipe to this exciting upcoming book.
“You’re an amazing Mother” – when’s the last time you said this? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. The book begins with you recognizing how incredible Mom is and how grateful you are that she’s made you a Dad. The style is simple, but heartfelt. Then kiddo interrupts – as kiddos do – and takes over the narration, showing Mom all the ways that she’s a hero.
Incredibly Detailed Cover
A strong first impression is key to any success, so we have a “go big or go home” approach to creating our covers. Our talented 12-person creative team – including illustrators, graphic designers, animators, and photographers – dedicated over 300 hours to preparing 9 different versions of this cover before arriving at the final one. Further artistry and IT wizardry let you put yourself and your kiddo on it. Add in top-of-the line ink and printing techniques and then, yes, you can please judge this book by its cover.
“This cover is something special, because the givers – rather than the receiver – are on it. The DIY nature of our books is what sets them apart, so we wanted Mom to really visualize her kid and partner creating it for her. And don’t worry, she gets to shine in the rest of the book!”
-Kate, Creative Director
As for the “rest of the book” – rest assured equal expertise and devotion were invested on every page. We aim for each spread to be a standalone work of art in an overall page-turner of a book.
The Book’s Relatable Story
Mom’s going to want to turn these pages. Each of the 10 stories you choose depicts her in a different genre to drive home all the ways she’s a hero to her kiddo.
Hooray Heroes books are famous for letting you create something 100% unique. This means not only letting you choose your book’s content, but also arranging the order it appears in.
“Take 10 of our fans and flip through their books, and you’ll see 10 very different stories,” says Magde, Head of Marketing. And these stories tend to go viral. A recent TikTok video has garnered nearly 40 million views.
“We love seeing people’s individualism reflected in our books. That’s what ‘personalized’ means to us.”
-Magde, Head of Marketing
Not only is it fast and easy to personalize characters in our books, it’s also pretty fun! If you haven’t seen it done before, check it out here:
The Book’s Content: Moms are Heroes
“A child narrates the book, so we asked ourselves: ‘What does Mom look like through a child’s eyes?’ Our illustrations are the answer to this question,” says concept artist, Iva. This book lists the reasons Mom is her child’s hero – from being protective to fun to cool to beautiful. Each page has a cute poem written from the child’s perspective and showing Mom in an environment to match each display of heroism.
Eye color, skin tone, hair style and shade – all created by you in seconds. And not only are Hooray Heroes books unrivalled in their character design, they’re also extremely fun to make! This one lets you name and create not only Mom and child – but also yourself! “Extra attention was paid to the cover, yes,” says head of personalizations, Kaja. “We know there’s nothing better than looking at real people you love, but we want our covers to be a close second.” A more detailed personalized book does not exist.
