I am a huge fan of personalised books for children as I really think it’s kind of a mind blowing moment for them when they think and realise that a book has been written especially for them and about them. They are such a huge tool for growing a child’s imagination – imagine hearing a story where you are the hero and go on adventures across the world… that must be so inspiring even at such a young age.
Books I have been a fan of right from the start are the Lost My Name books – absolutely brilliant stories where a child goes on a journey to find their name which of course turns out to be your child’s name. It was one of the first books Alyssa ever received and now that she is enjoying books with mama she is loving it too (also great for learning letters and spelling their names just FYI!)
A little while after this, we found out that Lost My Name created a second book in the series, “The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home” in which your little one goes on a journey through space until they eventually end up at home…their ACTUAL HOME. One of the final pictures in the book is a sort of Google Earth map shot of their house. Such a wonderful idea as again it pushes the boundaries of their imagination whilst also keeping a feel of that old saying “there’s no place like home!”
Well we were very very excited to discover that Lost My Name has released a new book called “Kingdom of You” and we could not wait to get our copy of it. Once again you are able to personalise with your child’s name, choose an avatar of them and select a few options of things that they like such as pizza and princesses. It’s a story all about your child’s wishes coming true (such as endless amounts of pizza for example… okay that might be a little bit my wish too) in their own little kingdom. Each little one get’s three wishes and with lots of combinations to choose from you’re sure to be able to make a book that matches your little one’s personality. I have to say that the illustrations in this book are my favourite out of all of them so far – beautiful vibrant colours and characters right down to the tiniest detail. Of course like all the Lost My Name books you are also able to add your own personal message to your little one as a reminder of the occasion – whether that be a birthday or Christmas gift or just because.
