The Little Boy / Girl who lost his / her name - Story Snug
, ,

Lost My Name Personalised Books

The Story: Every Lost My Name book is different as it depends on the name that you choose but each story follows the same format. On the first page a child, boy or girl, is looking for their name. Throughout the story the child meets a variety of characters whose names begin with the letters in their name. By the end of the story the child has collected all the letters (in the correct order) and found their name.

The Lost My Name books are sturdy and printed on thick, environmentally friendly paper. Each page is a double spread with beautiful, bold illustrations which complement the bouncy, rhyming text. The stories include a wide range of characters, in my name I have a Nabarlek, an Aardvark, a Troll, a Robot, an Imp, an Elephant and an Eagle (as I have a repeating letter I have two different characters for letter ‘E’). It is hard to choose favourite characters and spreads as we haven’t seen them all but we like the three eyed imp with his pink punky hair and we’re amused by the seal who thinks he’s a dog!

As the Lost My Name books are personalised books they are made to order and can be customised for any name. If you have a short name, extra pages will be inserted to extend the story. The Lost My Name books have been translated into French, German, Spanish and Dutch and you can also order a copy written in American English. Each country now has its own Lost My Name website (click on the links below for the country of your choice) where you can preview your book and find out more.

In English the books are called The Little Boy Who Lost His Name / The Little Girl Who Lost Her Name.

      I know a few people who will find these books under their trees this year 😉

    What a cute book. My nephew is German/American.

      He can choose between American English or German, it’s interesting to compare the two different versions 🙂

    What a unique and interesting idea – a personalised book in a person’s own language. It almost makes me wish my Kiddo were a young kid again, what a great Christmas present that would make.

      We have the English and German versions so they’re two different stories 🙂

    These look beautiful! I would love to win one for my little boy. Shame he only has 4 letters!! Might have to lengthen it! 🙂

    1. Catherine avatar

      Don’t worry Amy, Lost My Name make sure that you still have a story that is a good length even if you have a short name 🙂

    I love the idea of these books; my daughter’s name is Samaire so we’re not likely to find much with her name on! I used to love anything with my name when I was little, but a whole book is amazing!
    Thanks for linking up with #WeekendBlogHop!

      Samaire is a beautiful name, I’ve never heard it before. It is lovely to buy personalised presents but nice to have an unusual name too, no confusion when you go to school!

    Ooh this looks like a lovely book! I know my 3 yr old would love it!

    1. Catherine avatar

      On the first reading it’s lovely when the child suddenly realises that the letters that have been collected spell out their name 🙂

    My daughter was given a copy of this book for her birthday and she absolutely loves it. Such a clever idea – whoever is your winner will be very pleased with their prize! #weekendbloghop

      I’m really excited that the range of Lost My Name translated books means that parents of non native English speaking children also have the chance to win one of Story Snug’s giveaways 🙂
