This personalised first day at school book is excellent, I was really touched when I read it and I know the parents of the child I have bought it for will be too, and it is something that they can cherish and keep and give to her when she is older.

I bought this as a present for a little girl who is very fond of Rabbits. This book was just what I was looking for in picture format and text. Little girl was absolutely thrilled when I gave it to her. So I am very pleased indeed with my purchase. Arrived very quickly too.my only criticism is... children in the UK are taught to read and write with one capital letter and then lower case letters in their name. The text in the book is a mixture of First letter capital followed by lower case, and all capitals. Rather a shame that they have done this in my opinion.however, I would still purchase again.

What a buy!!This book is just fantastic. The pages are colourful and well illustrated.... but the story is outstanding. It brought back memories of taking my two daughters to their first day at school. I bought this for my granddaughter.... she loves it and it has put her at ease and she is now really looking forward to her first day at school in a few days time!

I bought this book as a leaving present for a child who is starting school (I have been his childminder since he was 6months old). This is a very sweet story about a child who is nervous about starting school, but very quickly starts to enjoy it. It's a lovely touch being able to personalise the book. A lovely gift!
The font size was not very good for a young child to read, it was too 'fussy',.
Also the child's name was not mentioned enough.

Not interested in full customer satisfaction
Uploading a photo on the inset of the book was one the features that made me purchase the book, but this did not upload as I found out when the book came through late! Slightly disappointed they didn’t offer a reprint as a goodwill gesture for full customer satisfaction. The book was one of a number of presents for a 5 year old. So seeing her pic on the book would have made all the difference

Purchased as a gift
Purchased as a gift. Delivered earlier than expected, it turned out to be an awesome addition to a true baseball fan’s collection. Embossing was perfect, book was exactly what we expected.
