It is a one-of-a- kind book. Definitely marks which birthday it is and who is the birthday boy. A very memorable keepsake for family.

I bought this as a first birthday present. The quality of the book was good and it was a lovely idea however I didn't realise that the number of objects on each page is the same as the age of the recipient. So for a one year old there was only 1 of each thing which didn't make sense with the stories. Such a shame! Would be much better to have different numbers or to make this clearer in the description.

Am really pleased with the book and am looking forward to giving it for a First Birthday present. Bright illustrations and catchy rhymes. Was pleasantly surprised to find the child's name printed on each page too (perhaps I'd missed that bit!).

Really nice idea for a young child's birthday to help them learn too! Arrived really quick and a good quality, colourful and detailed book which I will purchase again for others. Not yet given it to he birthday boy but know he will love it when I do.

I have ordered these Birthday Counting Books for my granddaughter since the age of three. She enjoys them so much that she asked for a book at the age of 4 and 5, which I have ordered for her. She will be 5 soon and I'm sure she'll enjoy this book as much as she did the first two.
Absolutely beautiful keepsake for my daughters 5th birthday in March!! Excellent personalisation, something beautiful for her to keep for years to come!! The book is massive and worth every single penny!!

Pleased with quick delivery
Pleased with quick delivery, lovely story for my Great Grandson who is 2half years old. Disapointed with the actual quality overall for the price you charged, regarding the quality of the thiness of the paper. Was expecting thicker pages.

90th Birthday Gift
We bought this for a relative's 90th Birthday present who lives in the south of England and as we live in the north it was delivered directly to him. It arrived on the day of his Birthday and he was absolutely delighted with it. He wouldn't have been happier if we'd given him £1,000. Thank you so much for a unique gift

I wanted to get my daughter something
I wanted to get my daughter something special for her birthday and In The Book did not disappoint! I bought her a personalised princess book which was great because it allowed me to put a picture of her inside and a special birthday message. When it arrived it came in a keepsake Disney box. My daughter absolutely loves it!
I would highly recommend In The Book because they provide a fast delivery service and quality products.
