The boys take after their Mummy and love it when we get a new book to review. Recently we received a personalised ‘Our Daddy’ book from Love2read. I have admired these books from afar for a long time but have never got around to ordering one so as well as the boys, I was really excited when this one arrived on our doorstep (even though it was gift for Daddy!).

With Love2read you combine keywords with photos to create a beautiful book that can be treasured forever. There are so many categories to choose from to create your book but the Daddy selection is perfect for Father’s Day, which is just around the corner.

A Love2read book is so simple to create – you just choose your colour, upload your photos, and add your short sentences and the rest is done for you. I love that there is one photo on each page (with a collage on the front and at the back) so it is easier for the child to identify the sentence or keywords that go with it, and also that there are ‘corners’ on each photo so it looks like an actual photo album.

None of the males in this house can sit still for long at the same time so Daddy read the book with the boys one at a time. It was so lovely to see them sitting and reading a book about their Daddy; J has really taken to attempting to read the sentences with each photo, and N loves looking at the photos.

The quality of the book itself is excellent; the pages are thick so much harder to tear than a usual paper book, and the print quality is much better than I expected as some of my photos I uploaded were blurry on the preview but came out fine in print.

This is a book that all three of them can treasure forever and sit and read over and over again – I want a Mummy one now! It is such a wonderful gift idea for so many occasions and we will definitely be purchasing more at some point in the future as we wouldn’t be able to afford them for every occasion.

Love2read personalised books retail at £14.99 each, but the more you buy the cheaper they get!
