Personalized Children’s Book – Following Featherbottom {Review}

I received a personalized copy of the Following Featherbottom book from MarbleSpark for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.

When C was first born she received a book from a friend. It was about fairies and the story was an interesting one. You see, the book was personalized with both her first and last name so no two stories were a like. I used to read it to her all the time. After a few years of it being on the bookshelf, I saw her pick it up again. She was so honored to have a book that was just hers, every page was about her and at night I would catch her reading it to herself over and over again. 

Now that G has started reading I thought it would be a wonderful way to surprise him. When an email came through my inbox about reviewing a personalized children’s book called Following Featherbottom by Philip Haussler and illustrated by Brad Sneed, it couldn’t have been more perfect.  I quickly said YES! And began the process of personalizing the book.

In each hardcover book you have the ability to put your child’s birthday, nickname, dedication from the sender, and the cover includes the child’s name. For my middle child, this was the perfect way to make him feel unique and special! You should have seen his face when he unexpectedly opened up the package and saw his name on the front!

G has asked to read his book so many times since he got it. We love the adventures that Felix Featherbottom and his sidekick Pierre du Pond go on together! The letters stand for different places so once again, no two stories are the same. G’s starts off in Glasgow and travels the world through all different countries with themed illustrations. They had a blast finding the letters on each page!  This is a beautifully illustrated book with so many things to talk about on each page.

We loved talking about the different countries as we saw them too.

I must say, the attention to details on the pages from the illustrator was really great. Each page associated with a country had so many things worked into that page for you to see and discuss. Sure, my kids learned a lot, but I learned some too;)

The storyline was precious talking about how a child was named. It is a beautiful story, one that makes any child feel wonderful. I think it makes a great baby gift too!
