Nothing entices a child to read more than a book that promises adventures with words and images that provoke the imagination of a young mind. Even more attractive if the hero or heroine of the story turns out to have the same name as your child!

Bookyboo offers such personalized storybooks where the storyline involves the alphabets of your child’s name. Created by founders Hetal Gandhi, the author and Neeraj Gulati, the tech brain behind this concept, Bookyboo aims to encourage reading among our generation of digital children. These books are ideal for kids between ages 4 to 8 years old.

When Bookyboo invited us to try one of their personalized books, my kids were regrettably past the ages of seeking their names in personalized books. But we could not pass up on this wonderful opportunity to share our love for reading with another child, their 6-year-old cousin Nathan who will be entering primary one next year!!

When we presented the book to Nathan, he was excited to see his name featured on the cover of the book. And he could not wait to read his amazing adventure with his “big” cousins. We love that Nathan’s adventures were set in India as it shares a part of my children’s Indian heritage with their Chinese-Singaporean cousin.  Nathan will learn about the beautiful Nilgiri Forest, climb up the Himalayan Mountains, visit Taj Mahal, one of the wonders of the World and meet special animals at India’s National Park.

Our hero, young Nathan, agrees to help the fairy find clues to this treasure. Here is a snapshot of the clues and adventures he will encounter…

At the end of the story, our hero realizes that HE is THE treasure! That He has the power in him to make this world a magical place! This is an uplifting and fun book that he can read over and over again.
