My grandchildren love being part of the story in every page. They also were surprised to see their friends names and where they live in the story, and me as well!!! : )
This is an absolutely charming story, made extra-delightful by the personalization and adorable illustrations. My little guy really enjoyed this story - this was the first time I'd read an ebook to him and I wasn't sure what he'd think about it, since he likes to turn the pages himself when we read together. But he sat on my lap and looked closely at the pictures while I read him the story. Love the extra personalization features (having loved ones and a personal advice giver included the story) also!

This book is totally adorable and my daughter thought it was the coolest thing ever to have her own character in the book. I totally recommend this book to everyone!
My daughter has Williams syndrome and is 7 years old. This book struck a chord with me in a very special way after reading it because individuals with Williams syndrome are JUST like Terrance the Giraffe's "personalized best friend" in the book. The friend helps make Terrance feel good about himself and that he is perfect just the way he was made. This is exactly what Williams syndrome is - these kids are so empathetic and want to help everyone. So it turned out to be the PERFECT book to personalize for my daughter because she embodies everything the best friend is in the book :) I loved the illustrations, they were adorable and bright and cheerful!
The other great thing about this book is that you get to write a personalized special message to the child on the dedication page :) It truly makes them feel wonderful. This is the perfect gift for new babies, birthday gifts, Christmas gifts - and it can be from friends, parents, grandparents.
