Recently Amellia got sent a really lovely personalised book from My Book Heroes. They have created three books that are written to help promote self-esteem in different areas that some children struggle with; discover the determination in you, discover the courage in you and discover the leader in you.
All of the books are customisable with a choice of 4 different characters to choose from to be your child of each gender, you also put in your child’s name so that features throughout the book, a choice of three different covers and a dedication where you can write whatever you want for them to enjoy after reading the book.
I decided that Amellia would benefit from the discover the determination in you book, to hopefully help her achieve the determination she needs when she finds things tough especially with starting a new school. When we received the book it was soft back and I had expected hard back for the price they are currently, but was very pleasantly surprised at how bright and colourful all of the artwork was inside of the book.
The artwork in the book is absolutely beautiful, very bright, colourful and pleasing to the eye. Amellia thought the aliens were very cute and her favourite character was Sylvie the Fox because she just loves anything and everything to do with foxes!
She really enjoyed reading the story and going through all the steps that the characters had to keep going at to complete their mission. It made her realise that sometimes things don’t work out straight away but you just have to keep trying until they do.
The text is a lovely size and easy to read with a nice amount on each page. I really liked that at the ending of the book there were several questions to go through and we really enjoyed answering them together and thinking back to the story we had read. It will be a book we keep on the bookcase for years to come and we really enjoyed reviewing it for My Book Heroes
