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.
Alice loved her book and Mum was delighted with it. All the characters are her favourite friends and she related to them straight awayAlice is starting school in Sept so thus book gives her all she needs to prepare for this big step in her lifeThankyou for supplying a n apt storyline that a child can understand
Excellent service and a wonderful book to read my grandson just loves the pictures too
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!
Not only the quality of the product but the superb customer service. The accessibility, the care and promptness I experienced with Yvette is laudable. Thank you Yvette, I am happy you replied to my inquiry. I would use and recommend the company In The Book without hesitation.

If you've seen or used a Haynes car…
If you've seen or used a Haynes car manual, then you'll appreciate the humour im this one!! A great gift for any car person/people, who've just got married or not!!
Well worth it as a present, as it is quite funny......or at least the parts that I quickly read before wrapping it up as a present. It was delivered quickly, within a few days too.

A great gift idea
Simple and easy to set up. Great quality product and arrived on time. A perfect little gift to give, recommend.
Smaller than a Hayes manual
Lovely book. Only personalised on the front cover & on one page inside.
A smaller size than the original Haynes manual. It’s ok for the money. Nice enough gift
