It’s no secret that I love personalised stuff. It makes a gift that extra bit special and turns it into a keepsake. I especially love personalised books. I have three little bookworms, but seeing their name in print is an excellent way of encouraging a reluctant reader to pick up a book!
Lost My Name is an idea dreamed up by four friends who were on a mission to create the most amazing personalised book that they could. Once they had their idea, they took it to Dragons Den and it’s all gone from there. I have to say, looking at the books that Harrison, Alex and Benjamin received, that they have more than hit their goal of making fantastic personalised books. They are breathtakingly beautiful!
The ordering process for the books is really simple. You just choose which book you want, type in your child’s name, whether they are a boy or a girl, and which character design you want and it’s done. You can look at a mock-up of the book before you go through the checkout process. You can also have a simple dedication in the front cover of the book as well if you want.
The books are aimed at children aged 2 to 6, but I think they would make a beautiful gift for a child of any age. The story is pitched at just the right level for Harrison to have a go at reading independently, and for Alex and Benjamin to have it read to them. They loved trying to spot the letters in their names, and were so excited when they saw their names in print at the end of the book.
The illustrations are, without a doubt, some of the most beautiful I have ever seen in a children’s book, and it makes it an absolute pleasure to read, for both children and adults. These are definitely books to treasure and keep.
The books sound quite pricey at £19.99 for the soft-cover, and it is more than I would usually pay for a book. However, when I saw the quality, I realised that they are worth every penny. The boys keep going back to them, night after night, and I don’t think any of us will be tiring of them any day soon
