Lost my name – A book Review

Back in February I received one of the most beautiful children’s book I have ever read. What makes it even more special is that it is personalised to the name of your child, any name, any spelling, so even the more uniquely named children can enjoy this beautiful book.

The book is written by David Cadji-Newby and illustrated by Pedro Serapicos through the company They are the number one bestselling picture books of 2014, hugely popular around the world not just in the UK.

It tells the tale of a little child who has lost their name, goes on a adventure and meets various characters along the way, all with different stories. Each character gives the child a letter, once all the letters are collected your child will see it is their name in the book.

If you and your children like the Julie Donaldson collection you will love this as the writing style is very similar.


As an avid book fan I was also impressed with how the book doesn’t only tell a lovely story and include the personalisation element but that it is also educational by introducing phonics in a fun way

“it’s like an O for ostrich”


The book is also full or wonderful illustrations that help to capture the imagination of the story.

I read this book with my two year old Connor and five year old Reece, our book was personalised for Connor and even at two he thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story. Once he realised that the book had been all about him he wanted to read it again. My five year old was even more intrigued by the story, he is a true book lover like his mum and I loved how he repeated every O is for Ostrich example to practice his letters. He was amazed that the person who wrote the book knew that he had a baby brother called Connor, although slightly perplexed as to why he hadn’t sent one for him too, insisting that one of these be added to his Christmas list.

These books are a wonderful gift idea that any child would be lucky to receive. They are a personalised gift that both a child and parent can enjoy together and cherish for years to come. This would make a great alternative for a christening or naming day present that captures the importance of a babies name.
