Back in January, we were preparing to take Little Mr for his first settling in sessions at Nursery. It was a big step for him and we wanted to do everything we could to support him in this transition. It didn’t start well but we had back up from Penwizard in our armour.
Penwizard create personalised books for little ones. Not only do they feature their own name but they can feature personalised characters too! We were sent a personalised Peppa Pig book with the title ‘Peppa and Olly go to Nursery‘. I thought it would be a fantastic way for him to see that Nursery is a great place where he would make lots of friends. Of course, if Peppa can go to Nursery and love it, then so can Little Mr.
The illustration of Little Mr is brilliant. During the design phase of the book, you can choose a range of features including hair and eye colour to completely tailor the illustration to the child. I love the design of Little Mr, it really does look like a cartoon version of him.
The book is really well made and I love how Little Mr’s character is well integrated into the story line. It’s a really nice story which little ones can relate to and it had Little Mr engaged throughout the book. Little Mr kept pointing to his cartoon and saying “it’s me Mommy, it’s me!”
The book was brilliant and it really did soften Little Mr up to the idea of going to Nursery and making friends. We read it the day before Nursery to remind him what was going to happen and he did seem happy to talk to us about what Peppa was doing in the book and he did entertain the idea of playing with friends at Nursery.
There’s a whole range of personalised books to choose from where your child can be star of the their very own book including Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom and In The Night Garden. We would definitely look at the range again for Birthday and Christmas gifts for friends and family’s little ones.
The personalised Peppa Pig book that we were sent is priced at £14.99 and I think it’s brilliant value for money and would definitely recommend the Penwizard service.
