Love2read personalised book review

If you read my blog regularly, you will know that I love nothing more than personalised photo products. As you can imagine I was delighted to be asked to review a book from Love2read. They are a company who make photo reading books for children. They are passionate about encouraging children to read and therefore their books are designed with key images and words to help with the process.

They have a huge range of books that you can choose to create from focusing on different family members to key events and experiences. You can view the full range here, books. There were so many I could have created, but I chose to focus on something that I knew Eva had enjoyed so much this year and that was our holiday. Eva talks about the holiday all the time so I knew the book would be a perfect way for her to relive the memories.

The book has 10 pages that you can add photos too. You can add a photo and a caption to every page and you can also change the background colour and text colour. The back page shows keywords which is designed to allow you to start a discussion with your child about what they can read and understand. I managed to create the book quickly and easily. I found it a really enjoyable experience to create it.

When the book arrived Eva was absolutely thrilled. It combines 2 of her favourite things and that is reading and looking at pictures of herself!! She instantly wanted to read it and was amazed at seeing herself on every page. 

The text is a good side print which I think helps encourage her to actually attempt to read it. I like the fact that the book only has 10 pages as it keeps her captivated. She certainly is associating key words with the pictures and therefore is learning as we read it. It's helping with the look and say technique of reading.  The book itself is a good size as it's easy to hold for small hands and it's not heavy. She loves this book and asks to read it all the time. In fact she recently took it over to a friend's house to show her. 

I can't recommend this book enough. It was an instant hit with Eva and myself. I am honestly seeing an improvement in her reading since we've had it. It's a wonderful way of capturing and reliving key experiences and moments in your children's lives. I'm definitely going to order some more and I've got my eye on one called My Baby Sister. Eva's sister is due to arrive in 3 days and I think it will be a perfect way to educate her on how to help with her sister and to also make her feel special, wanted and needed. They'd make great stocking fillers this christmas.

Have you heard of this company before? Does your child like to read?
