Any regular reader will know how much we love books and there is nothing we love more than a personalised book. When I saw the My Given Name book I thought it would be the sort of thing that LP would love to read and so when we were sent a copy to review I couldn’t wait to see what LP thought.
My Given Name is a book personalised to be about any child. The front cover has the child’s name on it and the whole book is written about how the child came to be names – spelling out the name on the pages, using different animals for each letter of the name and ending with a birth certificate of the child’s full name.
Each page is beautifully illustrated and the fonts really bring out the print in the book, especially where a character of the child’s name is being described and a different colour is used. The book is a pleasure to read, wonderful to look at and a perfect bedtime story to end the day.
LP is at the age where she is starting to learn letters and learn what her name looks like written down. Soon she will learn how to spell her name and to write it herself and My Given Name has already started to help with how she recognises letters and I am sure it will continue to help as time goes by.
My Given Name is something that all children would love to own, a book about them. It’s a really great addition to not only a child’s bookshelf but something to treasure for years to come, look after and have as a keepsake way past childhood.
My Given Name has an RRP of £19.99
