These personalized books make the perfect baby gift, birthday gift, holiday gift, and other special occasion gift for children of all ages. Each custom-made, hardcover book can include up to 4 countries and is written for one American child. In today's world, while Americans are surrounded by different cultures, languages, customs, traditions, & food, some of the traditions of their own heritage may be forgotten. My Heritage Book was developed to help teach children that these differences are a part of heritage and that their own heritages should be embraced. In this personalized book, children can learn about the countries their ancestors came from and some of the traditions they brought to America. By making their initial cultural explorations personal, we hope that their journey will become that more interesting & fun!.
Each custom-made, hardcover book can include up to four countries and is written for one American child. If a child is 100% of any ethnicity, his/her My Heritage Book will be based only on the appropriate country. There will be additional topics, along with beautiful illustrations for that country.
Please see our available Countries for a list of countries you can currently include. The books are also personalized with a letter to the child from the gift-giver, the child's name throughout, and pages for the child to fill in his or her own family's traditions and family tree. We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee because we are confident My Heritage Book will be a treasured keepsake for each child who receives it.
In today's world, while Americans are surrounded by different cultures, languages, customs, traditions, and food, some of the traditions of their own heritage may be forgotten.

Colombia"My Heritage Book is like a wonderful and interesting history lesson. I can't wait for my granddaughter to be able to learn about the wonderful countries of Italy and Colombia that are her heritage. She is already being spoken to in Spanish by her Colombian grandmother! The illustrations are magnificent and the content of the book is so interesting not only for a child, but also for an adult. I am learning things I did not know. I plan to give this as a gift to any new parent. There is no better gift I can think of!"

Italian Food"My son received his My Heritage Book as a gift and we couldn't be more thrilled with it! What a great way for my child to learn about the customs of his ancestors; from the foods they ate, to the rituals they practiced. I've learned things I didn't even know! Our book contains Italy, Ireland, and Poland; the illustrations are gorgeous and capture the author's words beautifully. This book allows children of all ages to begin taking a first look into discovering the fascinating facts about their ancestors and how some of the values and customs are still practiced in their own family today. There is even pages for my son to start his own family tree and to write about his favorite customs and family past times. My Heritage Book is a must have for any family; it opens up a whole new world of questions and fun, and is a much welcomed break from the monotonous board books and video games."
- Jen N, Chicago, Illinois
"WOW! What a great idea! I love this book. It's so educational and informative. I'm sure it's going to be a hit among children and parents, and it's probably going to be used by schools as well. Very interesting the way it ends, I always believed that interaction makes things more fascinating. Children will be thrilled to fill the lines out with their families' history, and the illustrations were beautifully and creatively done."
- Zina O, Davie, Florida
"I gave My Heritage Book to a friend when her daughter was born. She could not have been more thrilled! Anyone looking for a great and very unique gift - this is it!"

Brazil"My Heritage Book is a wonderfully unique and educational book for children of all ages. My son, who is only 2, loves looking at the beautiful illustrations and learning about the far away places his grandparents came from. We will cherish it for years to come! I have also given it as a gift several times and have received nothing but rave reviews. In fact, a friend of mine from Brazil actually had tears in his eyes as he read about his country that he misses dearly. His children are 5 and 2 and they absolutely love their books that were written especially for each of them. If you have children or grandchildren, this book is a must have!!"
- Nicole H, Carmel, New York
St. Lucia's Day Sweden"As a teacher, I would highly recommend this book for young readers wishing to learn more about their heritage. The reading is interesting and informative (I learned even more about Italy and Sweden by reading the books with my children), as well as personal with the child's name throughout the book. I was very impressed with the beautiful illustrations, also. This would make a perfect keepsake gift for someone special!"
- Paige S, Port Chester, New York
