Personalized Books


For a child, blowing out the candles on the birthday cake and making a wish is a magical experience. This cheerful personalized story inspires the birthday boy or girl to think about what they might wish for on their birthday. After many interesting possibilities, your child discovers the best wish:

I wished to be just where I am;
right here with all of you,
and when I opened up my eyes,
I saw it had come true…

because you see, those other wishes
could still come true in time,
but for today I have to say,
I like being (your child’s name here) just fine!
