The Little Boy Who Lost His Name Review

I was so pleased to be offered one of these delightful books to review from the lovely folk at Lostmy.name.  My youngest was positively over the moon when it arrived and he slowly discovered the book was about him.


It is a really great idea for a story, it develops along nicely with an interesting theme (a child tracking down their lost name) and fun characters to meet and then your child gets the pleasant surprise of realising the letters found spell out their name.

You can go through the process of making a book and see a sneaky preview on their website, but once you have done that I am sure you will want to order one to treasure forever.  The pictures are beautiful and it makes a nice change to some of the run of the mill books we have been reading at bedtime. 


I personally want something more magical before they go to sleep, story time is a special part of the day, when you can snuggle together and enjoy some calm quality time.  Lostmy.name completely understand this, given the concept was produced by three dads and an uncle you can see why they managed to get it so right!

Each of the books made has a story based on the letters in your child’s name, so for another name with different letters a whole new exciting adventure can be discovered.  This really is the perfect purchase for all your children to enjoy.  My order arrived promptly and I was pleased with the quality of the paper.  The book would make a thoughtful gift for any child.

As my son has quite a short name he seemed to have a few extra pages to pad out the book, this was ideal as you would not want such a fabulous book to end too soon!  The book is pitched at children aged 2-6, my youngest at 5 thought it was terrific but my eldest at 7 still took quite an interest in hearing about it too.
