Personalised Books for Kids: Give the Gift That Keeps on Giving

  • Toddlers

Books are such a wonderful way of engaging kids in different stories and scenarios—and they’re even better when the main character is the little one themselves! Personalised books for kids are the perfect way to prepare kids for big life events; putting themselves at centre stage.

Studies indicate that when children see themselves in a story, it has a remarkable impact on their literacy and language development, helping to create confident, enthusiastic readers. Ultimately, being the star of the story helps kids to form a personal connection to the book - making the content super relatable and enjoyable.
