Why we're different

It's faster, more meaningful and more personal. Built by experts, customized by you.

1.   Our Live Preview is 30x faster than Shutterfly

  • Our live preview offers a guided storytelling process. It allows you to make a book in as little as 15-20 minutes.

2.   Stories more meaningful than Photo Book Apps

  • We don’t just simply print your photos in a book. We guide you through an easy storytelling process to create an unique product where the focus is on your child.

3.   Your child's story, not a generic “personalized” book

  • We go way beyond just adding your child’s name to a book and calling it “personalization.” Each book features your child's own story, crafted by a team of child experts, customized by you.

Inside the Live Preview

Making a story is an easy, guided process. Questions range from multiple choice and fill in the blank to short answer. Photo uploads are easy with uploads from Instagram, Facebook, Google Photos, Google Drive, Dropbox and more.

What your child learns

Each book is written to your child, with you as the author. Learn about the benefits of our therapist model and the types of prompts we use below.

1. Affirm identity

We guide you through a series of simple and easy steps to help you write down things that make your child unique.

Example questions might include: describing things they’re good at, telling a fun story about their personality or about what they want to be when they grow up.

2. Process experiences

Questions might range from details of an important life experience that you’ll want your child to remember later (like our Baby Books or key milestones books) or might ask your child to talk about their first soccer experience.

3. Build connections

Help them get to know their extended family and community. Questions might range from how they impact their school community to questions to introduce them to close family members.

How it works

Take our quiz to help you select a book. Choose by your child’s age or select a book as gift. We help you decide!

2. Build your book live
