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.
Excellant product, very happy with it. It came within 1 week of me ordering it..

All round great service
All round great service, from choosing options to arrival of the book.
my only criticism might be that the "message" for the recipient is small and not so well presented in its layout. The message is tucked away on a plain page with nothing else on it. The font used is too small for the page.
