CNET News Video: Tech Minute: Create a personal storybook for your child

1:01 /

If you have little kids on your holiday-shopping list, how about giving them something truly unique and personalized this year. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on the best Web sites for building custom storybooks.

-Customizable books are a special gift and so easy to create. To get started, most websites asked for the child's name and other basic information like birth date and hometown. Those details are then use throughout the story. The website I See Me has broad range of books for every occasion; birthdays, holidays-- so the stories about introducing a new sibling. Prices start at $24.95. Personally, Yours Book offers a large selection including titles are features of Sesame Street and comic book characters. For $15.95 these books often include the names of your child's best friends and allow to give her to include a dedication page in the front. Finally, there's Paper Hat Press. It has the smallest selection but offers more ways to personalize the story include details like eye color, hair length and skin tone. Prices start at $31.95. Story time just got a little more personal. In San Francisco I'm Kara Tsuboi, cnet.com for CBS News.
