Ok, it’s only our second ‘Book of the Month’ and already we’ve broken our rules of having guest recommendations. But this is a special case.
Almost a year ago to the day I posted about a Kickstarter campaign for a new company called HeyWow! Formed by husband and wife (or mum and dad) team Lorna and Daniel Freytag, they wanted backing to produce a new personalised kids picture book that features an image of your own child on every page in a ‘Where’s Wally’ style picture hunt.
I put my money where my mouth was and backed them. Then in early summer this year my three year old daughter Emmi got her very own book delivered. To her absolute delight and amazement it features her name and picture on every single spread. She loves finding herself and even after countless reads and knowing exactly where she is on every page she still loves the game.
All of the pages are beautifully illustrated by Lorna in a photo montage style with bold, bright colours that kids will love. As well as finding themselves on every page there are also other challenges dotted throughout to keep the attention of your kids and make this a book that they’ll want to keep coming back to.
The reason I’m sharing this now is they have just gone live with their website, heywow.co meaning that you can now order the book for your own kids. Just in time for Christmas!
