I am the biggest sucker for targeted ads on Facebook. Although I won’t always buy the product, I will almost always click. That’s how I ran across these adorable “Lost MyName” books for little kids.
You simply go to the website, put in the name of the child you want to make the book for, choose a boy or girl and pick one of the three adventurers. Right now they have a white, asian and black adventurer for each sex. I hope they expand the choices because as much as I love the idea of there being personalized books for kids who have less common names, it is just as important for kids to see others who look like them in the media they consume.
The kid goes on an adventure collecting all the letters of the lost name. And eventually, after many adventures and collecting letters, the name is found.
I’m so glad I ran into this book. I love that it is so easy to make. You also get to have a personalized note printed on the inside cover which is such a sentimental touch. I know I would have treasured a book like this when I was a kid. I think it’s going to be my go-to gift for now!
