I recently opened up an after school Stay and Play group for children in my local area with disabilities and learning difficulties and one thing I needed was some new and interesting books as the ones we had were great for the teeny members but not so much the older children.
I was absolutely delighted when I was chosen to review the My Personalised Encyclopedia from I Just Love It (formerly known as Gone Digging) and I logged onto their website to make a mock-up of what the book would look like so I knew how many characters etc… to use when filling in the personalisation details as requested.
In no time at all the encyclopedia arrived and it was better than I had expected and extremely high quality from the covers to each individual page.
The recipient’s name (in my case Playgroup) was printed throughout the books pages and featured on a lot of the images inside. This to me was a fabulous way to personalise something as most personalised books are only really personalised on the front cover.
Soon enough Monday came along and I took the book along to playgroup and left it with the books to see if any of the children would notice it, well they certainly did and the encyclopedia was well received by all and the children and adults both enjoyed it and loved that it had been made so personal and enjoyed the many facts printed and the wordsearch at the back.
Without a doubt once we receive some funding for our group I will be using I Just Love It for more pieces as they are an amazing company!
