Review of The boy who lost his name
We love books and irrespective of how many ever books we have at home, we can never say no to one more book. Especially if that book is a special book customized with your child’s name. The book I am reviewing today is one such book.
Yes, The boy who lost his name is a book printed just for your child with your child’s name. You can even write a special message to your child.
The story is about a little boy who cannot remember his name and goes searching for it. He meets different animals and birds on the way and each of them give a letter from their own name. In the end, it is pure magic when he puts the letters together to form his name.
Now, any child would be super surprised to see his/her name on the book. Mine was too. When my son saw his name written in bold letters at the end of the book, he was super thrilled.
My kids are 5 and 9 and both of them loved the book. My elder one has a special spot at home for his special books and this book has found a place there. The rest of the books are all Harry Potter :). He also loved the special message we had written for him. So, I asked him what he thought of the book and he said he loved it and for the next book he wants characters from Harry Potter to help him find his name. I told him that I will pass on this idea to the team at Lost my name 🙂
My younger one loves anything related to the animal kingdom. So it did not come as a big surprise when he said he loved the book.
The illustrations are brilliant and the quality of the book is awesome. It came packaged in a cute gift wrap box.
The ordering process is easy and you get to see the entire book before you order and what you get is exactly what you see. Some letters have more than one animal/bird and you and customize what you want in your book. The same book is available for girls as well, and the title is “The girl who lost her name”.
What the kids loved:
- Special message
- Their name at the end
- The cute packing the book came in
What I loved :
- The concept and the way the story is created
- Ease of ordering
- Ability to see how the book would look like
- Packaging and delivery
- The book was able to put a big smile on my kid’s face
If you are thinking of gifting something to your child or any other tiny tot, this book would be an awesome choice.
