One thing I really enjoy doing with the children is reading stories to them. There is something really enjoyable about transporting yourself to an imaginative world and heading on an adventure. Whats even more special is when you have a personalised book and the child can really relate, feeling it's their own adventure.
Lost My Name does this beautifully, and are well known for their personalised books. There first book was conveniently titled 'Lost My Name' and was the best selling children's book of 2014. I remember seeing lots of talk about the original book and now they have become specialists in personalised stories. The latest within the collection is 'The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home' which we were lucky enough to receive a copy of. We've had this book for Isla, as we thought it would make a special gift she can treasure for her upcoming first birthday, but also one Jack can relate to with his sister in. I'm sure sometimes he would like to send her to space anyway.
The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home is a truly magical story about two friends (one your child the other their best robot friend) who go on a secret adventure to space. After lots of travelling around they eventually find themselves lost. Along their journey of trying to find their way back home they discover lots of amazing creatures and aliens who in turn help them find their way back home.
From the very first page of the book its personalised to your child with a special personalised note, then seeing their name written in the stars. As you go through to book and arrive back on planet Earth you will begin to see familiar landscapes close to your home, followed by an aerial map of your street.
Throughout the book there are a range of easy to follow rhymes and suitable for all ages. Both Jack and Isla have enjoyed this story, although it was possibly a little too long for Isla at the moment. It starts as an enjoyable bedtime story and as your child gets older could teach them about space and the world in which we live.
