The three books I got were a huge hit! This is my favorite gift to give newborns. There’s really nothing else like it. My friend called crying after she read it.
~ Nicole W

Honestly, blown away by both the books and your customer service. My brother and sister-in-law said they almost cried when the book arrived and they read it aloud for the first time. When the older daughters got home and read through it, they had a great time picking through each of the pages and finding everything that began with that letter.

Beautiful! I ordered our six year old a book. She LOVES it!! She could not believe there was a book made with her name in it…she kept asking me how I found such a book…she was so shocked! She took it to school today to show her class. I heard her reading over and over again the page about “a beautiful girl”.

The gift was perfect and my friend lit up with joy! They were in awe of the beautiful artwork and personalized story! I love this book with all my heart. You really made my year and I can’t thank you enough. It truly is perfect!

Dear Grandma Jodi ~ Thank you so much for the book.  I can’t believe it is all about me!  We’ve read it lots of times! thanks ~ Love Hanna
~ Hanna (age 6) see her note…

OMG! This book is amazing! You should have seen how big her eyes got when she realized it was about her! Amazing. Definitely her most favorite book ever!
~ Hanna’s mom

Just read Following Featherbottom, made for my friend’s new son…made us both cry! What a wonderful idea, gift, tribute. You guys rock!

Our soon-to-be 3 year olds (twins), Ian and Sofia, love their “birthday books!”

I am so in AWE of the book that I purchased that I haven’t calmed down since it came in the mail. The dogs are avoiding me because I’m so giddy.
~ Jeanette R

I just opened the books!  They are beautiful and perfect!  Thank you-Thank you-Thank you!
~ Julie D

The books arrived. They are wonderful!! One thing I really like is that this is a book that grows with them. And now that I’ve seen them I’m placing another order!
~ Rena C

I had dinner with my boss a few weeks back and gave her the book for their new baby. She started to cry as she began reading the book, then turned to her husband and said, “This is the best gift we’ve gotten!”
~ Matt G

Oh my gosh!!!! The paper quality is perfect as is the vibrancy (is that a word??? it is now) of the color on each page!!! Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful keepsake!!!!
~ Nancy A

We read Kylah’s book to her all the time and now she can spell her own name! It’s a great learning tool!
~ Hilarie H, San Francisco

I’m love that it’s appropriate for a baby gift and yet just as fascinating for our 6-year-old grandson. PERFECT for his identifying objects beginning with the letter on each page!

    My wife and I just ordered one for our little sister we sponsor through Big Brothers Big Sisters. I've got a bunch of nephews and nieces to hit up as their next birthday comes round. P.S. had to put my name in just to see where my adventure took me too.

    What a beautiful book! I had to order one for each of my grown daughters (no one is ever too old a for such a unique book). Picking where the letter comes from is a great option. It allowed me to picked places they have traveled to or hope to travel to, making even more personal.

    We bought this book for our 3 year old who is learning to spell her name. She loves it. The pictures are great and she loves the rhyming. The first book we received had and error. I emailed Marblespark when I found it on Christmas Day. Someone responded to my email within hours and sent another one. I couldn't be happier with their personal response to my issue. I love the book and I know I'll be getting more as gifts for other people. What a great book!

    Fantastic job. It's made perfect “welcome to the world” gifts!!! We love the attention to detail and there's always something more to find!

    Thank you to the brilliant, innovative, fun, creative, and astonishing creator of this book.  I ordered one for a new baby in our family and was so completely amazed with its uniqueness, beauty, quality, and meaning.  It is a wonderful product that makes both the receiver and the giver feel special and cherished.  I have not felt this level of pleasure ever in giving a gift.  AWESOME!  I loved the book so much that I have now purchased two more — one for each of my grandchildren.  From now on, this is the only gift I will consider giving to the parents of a newborn.  It is amazing, wonderful and magical.  Your customer service is superb as well.  Your business model is one that all companies should adopt and follow. Congratulations and thank you!

    I just received the book I ordered for my daughter and I was truly amazed at the detail and beauty of it.  It exceeded all of my expectations.  I can't wait to travel the world with her through the illustrations and story.  Thanks for such an amazing product!  I will definitely recommend these books to everyone I know.

    I bought this book for my 2 year old daughter a couple of months ago and she loves it so much! I love it too! Such a wonderful book! Thank you, thank you!

  13. Lori Says:

    I just ordered the book for my first grandchild…can't wait for it to arrive!  I have a suggestion … please add an area to enable customers to ship to a different address.

  14. marblespark Says:

    Hi Lori! Thanks for the order! You can update the shipping address on the payment confirmation screen (the very last page of checkout). Unfortunately our payment processor doesn't make it as obvious as we would like. Please let us know if you'd like to update the shipping address on your order. Thanks again, Phil

    My daughter (almost 5) was just given 'Twas the Mouse Who Saved Christmas.  I honestly can't think of a better gift to give.  My daughter loves this book and especially loves her role in it.  She is a young Kindergartner and I am always looking for new ways to help build her confidence.  This book makes her feel special and I can't wait to order one for my son.  And I love your work with Project open book!

  16. Julesag25 Says:

    What an awesome book! It is my son's new favorite bedtime book.  What a great story and amazing illustrations.  I will definitely be ordering another!

  17. Kristy Says:

    I received this as a gift today. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this book! I read it to my daughter twice and the second time I noticed all the other objects starting with the letter on each page. I just ordered three more of these books for friends. I know they will love the booksmas much as I do!

    I ordered my first book about 2 year ago for my daughter's first birthday. It's one of her favorite books and we love it as well. I'd like to order one for my son who will turn one in September. The first time around I got a great deal because you guys were on Groupon or LivingSocial. Will you be running another offer like that anytime soon? Thanks!

  19. Jan A. Says:

    This is the loveliest, most imaginative book in publication! I am giving it to children in our family and children of friends, and everyone loves it! Thank you for a truly wonderful book!!

  20. Angie Stewart Says:

    I received this book when my youngest son was born and absolutely love it! It is such a great gift! So much so, that I could not wait for the next baby in my circle of friends to arrive so I could order one for them! Truly a creative way to teach spelling and geography. Keep it up!
