We are serious book fans at our house! Having and educator as a husband, I have always known that books would play a big part in how our children were going to be raised. I am so grateful for his love of books because I just didn’t grow up loving books as much as he did. Seeing his love of reading rub off on our daughter has truly been a joy to watch.
We are constantly on the look out for great children’s books. There are so many children’s books out there! It is sometimes hard to find books that are both enjoyable for the parent and the child to read. We definitely have our favorite authors that we know we can count on, but we are always on the lookout for more great books to add to our collection.
I was so excited when I was asked to review the book, The Little Girl Who Lost her Name because it is such a different idea for a children’s book! It is a custom book for your child!
The story is about a child who lost his/her name and has to go get help gathering the letters for it. You don’t know the name of the child until the end of the book, so watching my daughter put together the pieces as the story was read to her was really fun. It only took her about two letters before she was 100% sure this little girl’s name was also, Harper!
The story was a great way to teach that it is okay to ask for help from others, while also teaching phonics skills. It became an instant family favorite!
This book would absolutely be a perfect gift this holiday season. I know many families like to give books as gifts and what would be more unique than a personalized book for the child?!
