My Pirate’s Tale Personalized Storybook

Reading with your children is an experience that is practically magical. From an early age, the stories and characters in books come to life in their imaginations, transporting them to the moon, the jungle, and fairy tale lands.

With My Pirate’s Tale, a personalized storybook by Bonnie Lee Medeiros, your child can go even fMy Pirate's Tale personalized storybook review from PlaydateCrashers.comurther into a beautifully illustrated story by becoming part of the book! My Pirate’s Tale is the story of David, who receives a treasure chest for his birthday filled with everything he needs to become a pirate. He sets out on the ocean to find buried treasure running into many obstacles and new characters along the way.

Now here’s the super-cool part. Not only can your child read through the story of David with you, they can be a part of the action! Included with the storybook is your child’s very own treasure chest, which includes:

  • Pirate Booty Bag with 5 gold coins
  • Pirate flag
  • Eye patch
  • Magnetic compass
  • Pirate head bandana
  • Telescope
  • Silver skull ring
  • 6 pirate-themed tattoos
  • Treasure map

Using the included props, you can recreate scenes from the book, take your own photos of your child posing like David in the story, and insert your 4 x 6 photos into the photo pockets all throughout My Pirate’s Tale!

Here are some shots of Miles, acting out the scenes to put into our book!

If you want to get really creative, you can create a backdrop behind your child to match the scene in the book or if you’re really talented at PhotoShop, you could create your own scene with your child’s image. The illustration in the photo pocket serves as your guide to taking your own snapshots to include. Another great feature is that you can easily swap your photos for drawings by your child or new photos as they grow!

  1. This is absolutely amazing! My three-year-old is really into pirates right now and I’ve been looking for more things that aren’t really character-specific (like Captain Hook, Jake and the Neverland Pirates) so they could use more of their imagination with it.

  2. How cute is this??? My 4 year old son LOVES reading & I know he would love this! Thank you, I’m off to check them out 🙂

  3. What a cute idea! My son would just love this…
    I love the illustration!

  4. Such a fun idea! I love it when children can get involved in the story.
