REVIEW & GIVEAWAY – Penwizard Books BIG Adventure to find Erin

I love personalised books. There is something special about a book that feel like it has been made just for you. We have read (and loved) a number of Penwizard Books before, including a Personalised Peppa book when Erin turned 1,  and the personalised Potty Training Princess book, which was a huge help when we transitioned to big girl pants when Erin was 2.

With Erin starting school in September, we have been working really hard on letters and numbers, and practicing visually recognising different letters on a page. I was asked if I wanted to review the new addition to Penwizard’s personalised range – Peppa’s Big Adventure to find [Your Name] and I didn’t take long to say yes!

About the Product

Big Adventure to find [Your Name] – allows children to follow the story of Peppa and George, collecting letters on their journey to spell out your child’s name on their treasure map. At the end of the story Peppa and George meet your child, and their own personalised character features in the illustrations too – looking just like them!!

Available in both soft paper back and hard back covers priced at £17.49 and £22.49 respectively.

The personalised element is really interactive, enabling you to specify not only their name, but their skin tone, eye colour, hair style and colour.

Our Experience

Erin is a big fan of Peppa Pig so as soon as she saw the book she was keen to sit and ‘read’ it with me.

As the story progressed, Peppa and George started to discover clues in the form of letters, – in our case just four – E, R I and N. When reading the story to Erin, I pointed out the different letters and asked if she knew what letter it was. The E she knew right away and said E for Erin!

The book not only visually shows the child the letter but also the story links it to an object beginning with that letter, which is a great way of reinforcing the link between letters and words.

Erin loved seeing the map that spelled out her name near the end of the book – and recognised the word almost straight straight away.

When Erin was introduced in the book she smiled and we talked about how it looked like her! She loved that Peppa and George had met her in the book, and enjoyed looking back at her favourite characters after we had finished reading.

From a parents point of view, I think this is a fun story that Erin would enjoy having read to her, and I really love the fact it not only reinforces the letters but has a character that resembles her too! 🙂

I do wonder how the story would differ for a child with a longer name (as obviously both of my girls have short names) and whether the book would be much longer in comparison?

At £22.49 for the hardback version, this isn’t a particularly cheap book, however I would personally pay the extra for a personalised book and opt for a hard back every time, as it makes it just that little more special! This would make a lovely gift for a special child in your life, particularly for a christening or naming day present.
