I was asked if I would like to do a review on the Lost My Name personalized books for kids, I agreed because I was actually thinking I would love to do this for my grand baby. I know she’s a little young for this type of book, but when she’s able to understand a book like this, I know she will definitely enjoy it!

The entire story is customized in the Lost My Name Personalized Books, not just a few name mentions scattered about here and there like in similar books. That means every single book is completely different–what a genius gift if you have more than one child to shop for.
The story is a stunningly illustrated adventure of a girl or boy who wakes up in the morning to find his or her name on the bedroom door is missing, prompting a wild quest to find it. Here’s the kicker: For every letter in your actual child’s name, there are four pages of a mini adventure between the hero and a clever animal or creature whose name starts with the same letter.
So for example, my granddaughter Gracen meets a giant who is quite fabulously vain and notices a spot on his face. He gets upset about it, but Gracen calms him down by telling him it’s a squashed tomato on his face! LOL
Then she meats a Robot who is rusty and has a dented head and a bit creaky. He’s thinking he should be melted down, but Gracen tells him he only needs Oil.
Then she meets an Ardvark who invites her to eat some Ants. Then he gives her a letter A to help her with her name. The story continues until she has spelled out her name GRACEN.
The well-placed touches of humor are delightful as well, brought to life in Pedro Serapicos’ illustrations. Imagine the Chameleon who is the color of a rock that the child in the story sits on and is squishing him.
I also love that the printing and thick, eco-paper stock are about as nice as I’ve seen on a book like this. You will not end up with pages missing after a few days, that’s for sure.
It’s nothing short of magical to experience that moment that your child realizes the characters are helping to spell out their own name. And trust me, you will witness that excitement over and over–at least if you have a child who won’t put the book down.

I’m a Gramma to a beautiful, funny, smart little girl who was born in July of 2014. She’s the joy of my family and I’m so very proud to be a gramma (an alternate spelling for grandma)! I am a coffee, music, movie and outdoor lover! My family and I love picnics, festivals and concerts. Spending time with my family is the best part of my life. I love my job as well! Blogging and product reviewing has given my family and I a lot and I have also learned a lot and made a lot of friends.
