For Christmas this year, my daughter Evie was given a personalised children’s book from her Grandma. It is so adorable, I just had to share it. It’s called ‘The Little Girl Who Lost Her Name’.
What’s special about this book is that the story is centred entirely around your child’s name. The story begins with a little girl (or boy if you needed that version) waking up to discover that she cannot remember her name. She then goes off on a courageous journey to rediscover it.
Along the way she meets a variety of creatures who help her to find her name. Each creature donates the first letter of their own name to the child. At the end of the story the little boy or girl realise that the letters they have collected spell out their lost name.
The book is a colourful & stunningly illustrated. You can actually go & preview your own story here on the books website. If you have more than one letter in your name then worry not, there’s no duplicate pages as they’ve created enough different characters to cater for this. For example, along Evie’s magical journey she met a forgetful elephant, a Viking who loved to bake ciabattas, a misunderstood Imp and a friendly eagle.
The book isn’t that expensive for such a lovely keepsake & is printed on environmentally friendly paper which gives it a really beautiful finish. It looks and feels a lot nicer and sturdier than general picture books. This would make the perfect gift for any child from newborn to primary school!
I would have LOVED to have had this book when I was younger. We can’t wait for Evie to understand the story & get excited about the adventure that she goes on in the book in order to retrieve her name.
Have you heard of ‘The Little Girl Who Lost Her Name’ & ‘The Little Boy Who Lost His Name’ books?
