'Lost My Name' book review

It is no secret that in our house we love to read, I have written several posts about it in the past, the Little Ones have a fondness for books and they do not let a bedtime pass without a story or three! Little 1 is nearing the end of her reception year at school and has taken to reading like a duck to water flying through the reading levels and is keen to read her school book every night, she has also begun to write some super stories herself.

When we were asked if we would like to review a 'Lost My Name' storybook I immediately said a big 'yes', I had heard some lovely things about them and we were not disappointed.

Each 'Lost My Name' storybook is a magical personalised tale, based on the letters of the child's name. It tells the story of a child who has lost his or her name, and bravely sets off to track down the missing letters.

 Along the way the child meets lots of weird and wonderful characters, who each give them the first letter of their own name, in order to spell the child's name.

The 'Lost my name' books have a simple storyline told in rhyming text and lots of different friendly characters throughout their pages each with their own little tale to tell. The books are a lovely A4 size and have great quality pages that will withstand a lot of handling. The illustrations are creative and colourful and it's all environmentally friendly too.

Each of the Little Ones received their own personalised book, the girls were delighted especially Little 1 whose name is uncommon and never found on anything in the shops. It was also lovely for Little 3 to receive a book to start a book collection of his own. 

As we read their books Little 1 loved hearing me read and attempting to read her story, she checked off the letters to her name and was thrilled to find her name in print at the end. Little 2 who is 3 can't spell or read yet is just beginning to show an interest in letters and the initial sound in a word. She loved listening to her story repeatedly (and the other two as well) and we used this opportunity to chat about the letters and sounds in her name so these books are educational too.

These books are priced at £18.99 (with free postage and packing). I think they would make wonderful gifts for a special occasion, a birthday, christening, new baby or just for that special little person. Check out the website Lost My Name to create a preview of your own personalised book and see how it all works.

N.B Each of the Little ones received their own 'Lost my name' book in return for this review.
