Best Personalised Children’s Books

World Book Day – Changing lives through a love of books and shared reading.

Every year, World Book Day promotes reading for pleasure and offers every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own. To celebrate such a special occasion, we’re running through some of our best personalised children’s books.


#1 Disney Personalised Frozen Story Book

Amaze your children with our best personalised children’s books – featuring the most popular Disney Princesses on the planet!

With our stunning Frozen collection, your little one can relive the magic of two well-known Disney princesses. Join Elsa and Anna as they work to free the kingdom of Arendelle from an eternal winter. On their quest, they’ll meet a raft of funny characters, like Kristoff, Sven and Olaf – the magical snowman. They’ll also learn the true value of sisterly love and friendship too. There are highs and lows throughout their journey but children will learn to rely on their friends and family to help them through any difficulty – such as the evil Duke of Weselton and the mysterious Prince Hans.

FUN FACT: Children who often read books between the ages of 10 and 16 gain higher results in maths, vocabulary and spelling tests than those who read less regularly.


#2 The Very Hungry Caterpillar - ABC

Toddlers can comfortably handle these chunky pages without fear of paper cuts. Making this stunning board book the best personalised children’s book for early readers!

Is your 1-year-old learning to read? Then Eric Carle’s Very Hungry Caterpillar is the best book to help your child learn the alphabet. Better yet, by including your child’s name on the front cover you can create a truly memorable introduction to the world of reading. Imagine how quickly they’ll be able to recognise their own name if a book has it on the front cover? Carle’s book features exceptional illustrations of all the letters from A to Z with imaginative pictures of animals to help your little one take their first steps into literacy.

FUN FACT: Reading for pleasure is more important for children’s cognitive development than their parents’ level of education or their socio-economic background.


#3 Horrible Histories: Terrifying Tudors Book

This amusing and fun-packed book comes in a purple leatherette finish and is personalised with a name of your choice. For presentation alone, this is one of our best personalised children’s books!

With so many children’s books out there, it can be tough to get fussy readers into reading. You might well have heard them bleat, “Where’s the fun in reading?” Well, there’s plenty to be had in Terry Deary’s hilarious Horrible Histories series. These entertaining reads have amused, entertained and educated children from as far back as 1993 when they were first published. This particular book educates children all about the ‘Terrifying Tudors’ and how they lived in the deadliest period in British history. Children will love to read all about the many wives of Henry VIII and the bloody executions too. Plus they will get to read all about the strange habits of the Knights of the Order of Bath. Packed full of facts and fun.

FUN FACT: 42% of children who report having fewer than 10 books in their homes, say they do not like reading and only 32% say they are “very confident” readers.


#4 Disney Winnie the Pooh Personalised

A marvellous addition to all those who love Winnie the Pooh and the Hundred Acre Wood. Presented in a lovely gift box, it had to be listed as one of our best personalised children’s books.

We thought we had topped ourselves when it came to presentation – and then this wonderful character came along. Known for his honey loving antics, Winnie the Pooh has engrossed children for decades with his silly and timeless stories. If you’re looking for a wonderful personalised package, look no further. Don’t get them another book that’ll just live on the shelf. Get them something truly special. When you emblazon your child’s name on the cover and the top of each page within the story book, you create something that is distinctively theirs. You gift a moment they won’t forget – and what’s better than that?

FUN FACT: Having books in the home is associated with both reading enjoyment and confidence. Reading for pleasure was also associated with better sleeping patterns.


#5 Jack and the Beanstalk

This curious tale is one of our best personalised children’s books because it’s a bona fide classic from bygone eras. To not have at least one of our classic fairy tales on this list would be a crime!

With an increasing number of people opting for unique names, we pride ourselves on our inclusivity – no matter how exclusive your name might be. Child of all ages have long been fascinated by the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk for generations. Now, you can watch your child’s face light up as they see their picture on the back page and their name woven throughout the illustrations. These hand painted illustrations are all penned in the traditional format and fantastically exemplify the adventurous tale of Jack as he mounts his expedition up the Beanstalk. It’s such a simple thing but we’ve discovered that personalised books can make a child far more receptive to the events and themes that occur in a story. This can greatly aid in the development of key emotional responses – like curiosity and empathy. Plus, a love of reading can significantly advance their literacy and language development too!

FUN FACT: Studies have shown that those who read for pleasure have higher levels of self-esteem and a greater ability to cope with difficult situations.
