Personalized Books Children Adore
My 5-year-old son loves taking books out the library that sport characters with his name.
When it was time to take library books back recently, there was one book I just couldn’t find, entitled The Adventures of Benjamin Bear by Claire Freedman. I hunted high and low for it and then finally asked Benjamin if he knew where the book was.
Turns out he knew exactly where it was because he had hidden it away. Hehe. I asked him why he had hidden it away and he said simply, “Because I wanted to keep it at home”.
Naturally, I explained that books from the library are not for us to keep forever but we could renew the book and keep it for another two weeks.
Since then, my hubby and I have become Masters at weaving in Benjamin’s name and the names of his friends and family into his bedtime stories. Young Benjamin gets such a thrill when we personalize the story. Do you do this?
Enter My Book Heroes
Just after the library book episode, I was contacted by My Book Heroes, a start-up company in Cyprus and the brainchild of Mompreneur, Maria Lavithi.
Maria Lavithi writes the most gorgeous children’s stories about big subjects like Leadership, Determination and Courage.
Each of her books can be personalized when you order them so that your child becomes the hero of the story.
I was only too happy when My Book Heroes offered to personalize one for Benjamin in exchange for a review.
I chose the title, “Discover the Leader in You” because, as you might recall from previous posts, that’s one of Ben’s character traits, he likes to take the lead.
They emailed me a PDF version. I read it to him and he loved it.
And he was even more excited when his own printed copy of the book arrived in the post 10 days ago.
I collected the book while Benjamin was at School. He couldn’t wait to get home before he opened his package.
This is him reading it on the way home from school…
