Penwizard offer personalised books starring your children alongside household name characters such as Peppa Pig, Fifi, Roary the Racing Car, Ben and Holly etc. We chose a Peppa Pig book which is A4 size, 24 full colour pages with a personalised story throughout.
When 3yr old Mister B saw the book, he immediately recognised Peppa Pig and then I pointed out his name. It’s only in recent months that he’s become aware of his name written down, but when he realised what he said, he thought it was hilarious – he was so excited and couldn’t wait to read it.
What I like about the story is that not only does it incorporate your child’s name, but you can modify the characteristics of the image of your child to make it more realistic. I was able to select hair colour, hair style, eye colour, skin colour etc to help make it more lifelike. Also on one of the pages it mentions the full name of the child, which reinforces to the child that the book really is about them.
I have never seen Mister B so excited reading a book, he genuinely giggled everytime we read his name almost in disbelief that it was a real book. Big sister Miss M has kindly sat and read the book through to him a few times – they both were genuinely excited and thoroughly enjoyed the story of Mister B in the swimming pool with Peppa Pig and George. This has also been a firm favourite that has been on his reading pile every night for mummy or daddy to read at bedtime.
I think the Penwizard personalised books are a great gift for little ones. The delight in their faces to see themselves in a book alongside their favourite characters is so special. These books are ideal for birthday gifts and one that you know will get used over and over again.
The ordering process is very simple, and takes just a few easy steps that the website guides you through, delivery is fast too. If you are looking for a personalised book then I’d definitely suggest checking out Penwizard.
