Giveaway: $40 Gift Card to MarbleSpark Personalized Books

Here at Prudent Baby we are all about the personalized books. There is something so special about having a book that was written just for you. If you have been on the hunt for that perfect personalized book, Following Featherbottom from MarbleSpark may just be it for you and today they are giving away a $40 Gift Card to MarbleSpark. Let’s hear more…

MarbleSpark is an indie publisher of mind-blowing personalized books. It’s the result of chasing a wild-hair way beyond what’s reasonable. Five years ago, we were expecting our first child and I thought it would be cool to write a children’s book just for him/her. On a whim, I wrote and illustrated a silly little personalized book. I never expected to show it to anybody but our future kids. The book was pretty terrible — but our family and friends went nuts over it. So I started toying with ideas for a real personalized books. After a bunch of detours and four years of work, that false-start eventually led to our first book, Following Featherbottom, which has been picked up by Pottery Barn Kids and others.

Following Featherbottom tells the story of how your child’s name came to be — not the real story, but a fantastical worldwide adventure to find the perfect name. It’s about a stork (Felix Featherbottom) that travels the globe finding the perfect letters to build the perfect name. If your child is named Emma, they might go to Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mexico, and Antarctica. You get to choose which locations Felix visits. At the end of the book, Felix delivers the name and leaves a map so your child can take the letters back. We don’t just plug your child’s name into the story — the name IS the story! The name even appears on the front hardcover and the spine. No two books are the same. Kinda like a snowflake—a big, awesome snowflake with your name on it that never melts.

We’ll launch our second book later this year. Our mission with each book is to make kids scream “How did you do this?!?” when they see the book.
