Parents, relatives, and friends who want to create highly personalized books for the child they love can now offer personalized gifts that provide a unique storytelling experience. Unique You Books, a start-up whose aim is to produce highly personalized books for every child, has the mission to create books that every child can identify with, including children of all colors, children with disabilities, those in wheelchairs, who wear glasses, or children with cancer.
Through the Unique You Books website, customers will be able to create and order personalized gifts, either unique softcover or hardcover books. The books will not just be based on a child’s name and appearance but also on the interests, appearance, name, and personality traits of each child.
With these highly personalized books for every child, customers will be able to create books by choosing one of three story backgrounds; select the main character from over 300 different characters, and create the stories based on the name of the child connecting the name with 76 different character traits.
“When reading Unique You Books and their very own personal adventures, children will be able to recognize their uniqueness and their contribution to this world through imaginative stories of self-discovery, love, and friendship”, said co-founder Milica Todoric.
When they came up with the idea for this project, the co-founders researched the personalized book market and realized that there is a low degree of personalization in children's literature. They noted that there’s a lack of heroes and heroines that every child can identify with, including children of all backgrounds, and children with disabilities and struggles.
Through this unique storytelling experience, they want to offer their future customers the opportunity to create and order books for children that exceed the basic levels of personalization, that is the name or appearance of the child. “That’s why our books will not only add a child to the story, but will also base the story itself on the interests, name, and character traits of the child”, said Milica, while adding that when reading Unique You Books and their very own personal adventures, children will be able to recognize their uniqueness and their contribution to this world through imaginative stories of self-discovery, love, and friendship. She notes that the more children know and appreciate differences, the easier it will be for them to accept, understand and above all, embrace them.
How Unique You Books was born
Unique You Books started when Ana ordered a personalized book for Milica’s son. The idea was simple - each name told a different story. As if by magic, every story was crafted to change based on the letters of a child’s name. While the idea was great, they thought something was missing. A story based on a name is not unique enough, not personalized enough. That got them thinking.
“We were surprised by the scarcity of diverse characters in children’s books. That’s why we think it’s so important to tell diverse and inclusive stories to kids from a very young age and we hope to empower parents and relatives to do so”, said Ana Susa.

Unique You Books is planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign to get funding which will allow them to finish their project. Ana says that all the story variations have been written, and the illustrators have finished the character development.
