** Holiday Gift Guide 2015 **
LOST MY NAME, a personalized book like no other, packed with intriguing stories and beautiful illustrations.
The real magic of LOST MY NAME lies in the personalization. The child is given the first letter of a character’s name, finally putting together their own. Every name creates its own unique, personalized tale, featuring a dazzling cast of different characters. The whole family will love the magical stories.
Their books, entitled “The Little Girl Who Lost Her Name” and “The Little Boy Who Lost His Name,” tell the story of a child who sets off on a marvelous adventure, to track down all the missing letters of their name. The stories are fabulous—there’s a glamorous Ostrich, sleep deprived Bear, a Viking who yearns to bake and a Zebra torn between spots and stripes—and many, many more. And the illustrations are fantastic—rich, vibrant and breaking new creative ground in children’s picture book art.
The book has sold more than 600,000 copies in the UK and other global territories and now they are taking the U.S. by storm.
Lost My Name was founded by three dads and an uncle who were frustrated by the lack of innovative technology being used to enhance quality storytelling for children. To address this, they created over 250 stories and illustrations, and developed a unique algorithm, which matched a child’s name and gender to those assets. The result? A beautifully written and illustrated book, where a child’s name forms the story.
We received “The Girl Who Lost Her Name” personalized children’s book to review for all of you. This book was personalized for my grand daughter Gianna. The words were written by author David Cadji-Newby and the illustrations were done by Pedro Serapicos.
It’s an over-sized softcover book that is just beautiful. Seriously, the illustrations are some of the best ones that I’ve ever seen in a children’s book. The story starts out with the little girl waking up in her bed and seeing that her name was now missing from her bedroom door. She looked all over her room for her missing name and couldn’t find it any where.
She then sets off to find her missing name and meets a variety of adorable characters along the way. These characters give her guidance and in some ways…help her. By the time your child gets to the end of the book…she finds her missing name.
Each story of course will be personalized by your child’s name so the story is different for every child. In other words, if you have 2 or more children in your family…the story will be completely different for each child because it’s based on the letters within their name.
What a fabulous and unique gift to give to a child this holiday season! You can learn more by visiting the Lost My Name online.
