My kids absolutely love books and I’m trying to nurture this as much as possible as I love seeing them “reading” I was offered to review a lovely Penwizard book and I decided to choose a Peppa Pig one.
There are lots of different characters to choose from including In The Night Garden, Ben and Holly and more generic ones such as your child’s name and football team.I decided to choose a book for P1; I will be ordering P2 one as well so she doesn’t feel left out! I chose The Biggest Muddy Puddle because we all love a muddy puddle! I ordered the book on Thursday and it was delivered by Saturday. I also received an email on Friday telling me that it had been despatched first class – excellent customer service keeping me informed!
The book itself is a soft back and has 24 colour pages (there is a hardback option for an extra £5) You select is you want a soft or hardback book to the child. You are asked for the childs name, gender, hair colour, eye colour, skin colour and if they wear glasses this is all so that the character resembles the child – and that’s it! It is THAT simple!
I love the smaller touches such as the blurb on the back also includes the child’s name and the picture of the ‘child’ appears throughout. It’s not just a one off or on the cover, they are part of the story from start to end. I think this would make an absolutely lovely gift.
Having characters such as Peppa and Ben and Holly also appeals to most younger children. I would pay £14.99 for a personalised gift like this which is not just something to keep but also something that they will love as it’s so unique for them! I remember my sister had a personalised book when she was little and she still has it to this day! I think it would make a wonderful birthday / christening gift for a child and will definitely be looking at getting my Godson one of these ( not to mention P2 and Charlie!)
