Yesterday I shared my gift ideas for baby’s first Christmas, with a sneak peek of a very special book.
Kindly sent to us by Penwizard, we were able to create a personalised edition of ‘The Snowman and the Snowdog’ just for Harry.
Already a Christmas classic, we sit down to watch the Snowman and then the Snowdog sequel every year. Last Christmas Eve I watched it with Harry just a five-month-old bump, kicking away in my tummy.
This year, as well as watching the cartoons, we’ll be sitting down to read the book with Harry, made all the more special with a new customised character….
Just the same as the animation, the illustrations in the book are beautiful. Truly nostalgic, flicking through the pages brings back happy childhood memories, the original characters so familiar.
Personalised to look just like an older version of our baby boy, the ‘Harry’ in the book has his hair and eye colour, with his rosy cheeks. Featured throughout the story and on the cover, our character is truly entwined rather than briefly mentioned, as can so often be the case with personalised books.
This is a book we’ll be getting out every Christmas, and enjoying for years to come as our baby boy gets older. Becoming as much a part of his childhood, as it was a part of mine.
As well as the Snowman and the Snowdog, there are hundreds of books to choose from on Penwizard, for all ages. Whether your little one likes Peppa Pig, In the Night Garden or Paw Patrol, there will definitely be a book they’ll love.
To get your choice of book at a discount, Penwizard have generously given me a discount code to save you some money this Christmas. The code RUBY20 will give you 20% off your order (T&C’s apply as below*) up until Wednesday 13th December 2017.
Seeing our little one in a book has made the Snowman story all the more special. It seems a long way off yet, but I can’t wait to hear him reading it along with us in years to come.
