2 – Add Their Name

The second step is to add the Name you’d like to appear in the book! To enter your chosen name, simply click into the ‘Name to Appear’ box and begin typing. The name will appear on the cover of the book, on the title page, and in most of our books, throughout the story!

You’ll get to see your child’s eyes light up as they’re given their brand new book and immediately spot their own name on the front cover! Ivy and Aria were excited to see their names in their exciting new storybooks:

As well as your little one’s name being written into their story and being featured on the front cover, they might also spot their name within the bright, hand-drawn illustrations on each page! Take a look at the photo below as an example:

3 – Add a Special Message

Next, you can really put your own special touch on your book by adding a special Message, which will appear on the opening page! Click into the ‘Add a personal message’ box and begin typing your message. If you’re struggling to think of what to write, you can click our ‘Get message ideas’ button for some inspiration!

4 – Upload Their Photo

After adding your personal message, you have the option to upload a Photo of your little one, which will appear on the back page of the book! To add a photo, all you need to do is click either the ‘Upload image’ or ‘Upload from Facebook’ buttons, letting you browse your phone or laptop, or select a photo from your Facebook account.
