If your child is a fan of hidden picture puzzles, then he or she will have a blast searching for themselves in these custom made personalized Find Me If You Can! photo books. This book is the brainchild of a small family business called Bammco that had a simple fun inventive idea! Bammco was nice enough to send each of my children their own personal Find Me If You Can! book so that I could see first hand how delighted children are when faced with the challenge of finding their own faces in a real, colorful, hardcover book. I knew that my children would find this book to be fun, but I had no idea what a huge hit it would be with both our twin kindergartners and our 3rd grader.

On the first page of the book, your child will find his or her adorable face, which is what they will need to find throughout the 30 full-color pages. On a 2-page layout like the one shown below, your child's face is hidden on the left page and on the right page. Each page also has rhyming text to add to the fun.
Although my children each received a book with their own face in it, which costs $29.99, you can add additional faces to the same book for just $5 each, up to a total of 5 faces.
At the end of the book, there is a message that reads "Hope You Had A Wonderful Time". I cannot help but think what a great gift this would make for the graduating 5th grade class at our children's school. Each book can hold up to 120 faces, so this would make such a fun keepsake for them before they head off to middle school.
To order, all you need to do is upload a good face shot of your child or children at www.bammco.net. Shipping and handling for each book is only $4.95. This is a media rate, so it usually takes between 5 to 12 days to arrive, depending on where you are located.
I must say, if you are looking for a fun new sit-down activity, this is it! If you think your book will not arrive in time for Christmas, then you could just print out the book cover, present that as the gift, and let the child know that their book is on its way.
Thank you to Bammco for providing complimentary product samples for us to base this review upon and for providing an additional product as our contest prize.
PLEASE NOTE: Delivery of this prize in time for Christmas cannot be guaranteed.
Good luck in the drawing!
