Lost My Name Book Review

Lost My Name

I was first introduced to the Lost My Name book when they pitched on Dragons Den and were snapped up for investment by Piers Linney.  I loved the look of the book then bookmarked it as a potential gift for any christenings we were invited to.

I was contacted a few weeks ago and invited to review the book.  I could see if working well for children with short names but was intrigued to see how it would fair for a child a longer name, so ordered one for Sebastian.

I was surprised by how quickly the book arrived, within a week of my order, and couldn’t wait to sit down and read it.

Lost My Name is about a child who goes on a series of adventures to find the letters of his or her name and I am nor surprised that it has topped the unofficial UK bestseller lists in 2014 with its first title.

It is simply the most beautiful book we own and it brought a tear to my eye the first time we read it.

The books are A4 size and are digitally printed on thick, uncoated, environmentally – friendly paper.  The pages are rich and vibrant in colour with stunning pictures that take you all on a magical journey to find your name and it is a sheer joy to turn the page to continue the story.  Isaac and Eliza love the book and seeing the realisation on their face when it spelt their brother’s name was priceless.

Of course they want their very own now, so we have added the book to our Santa wish list for later in the year.

It does work as well with a long name as it does a short, only the story is a little longer which meant Sebby at 22 months did get distracted, although he got further than I thought he would, but I know that as he gets older this will soon become his favourite story.

The Lost My Name book costs just £18.99 including free delivery and you can get 15% off by clicking through this link. Recommend three of your friends and if they purchase one too you will also get The Amazing Alphabet That Appeared In The Night book for free too.

    This is a great way of keeping children entertained without them realising that they are learning their alphabets and understanding sounds and words. Making them personal with their name makes it special too.
