I’m not a super active Facebook user. I usually just link to my bookish updates from Instagram or Litsy (username: Chachic) to my blog’s Facebook page and then I mostly stay off the site. One of the rare times I was on it, I spotted an ad that looked interesting. It was for a small company called Lost My Name and they publish personalized children’s books. I thought it was such a cute gift idea so I went ahead and ordered two books to given to sons of two good friends of mine (one of the little boys is my godson). I ordered The Little Boy Who Lost His Name, where a little boy loses his name and encounters animals or magical creatures that will help him spell out his name along the way.
Book mail is the best kind of mail, even if the books aren't for me. These are personalized kiddie books from @lostmy.name for two special boys (tagging the parents @sherylpie @cairynsantos @josebimbosantos). This is the only time that a Facebook ad worked on me! Couldn't resist such a cute idea. Love the concept, the artwork, and what is sure to be a great reading experience for both the parents and the little boys. So excited to give these to them.💖 . . . #LostInTheStory #LostMyName #bookmail #childrensbook #bookgodmother #bookstagram #instabooks #bibliophile #bookblogger #bookphotography #IGreads #IGbooks #Litsy

And here’s a pic of the Saturday brunch that I had with my friend and my godson, where I gave one of the books to them. I think my friend was even more excited for the book that her son was! I usually give books as gifts to kids but it makes me a lot happier when I know for a fact that their parents enjoy reading to them. Otherwise, I get the feeling that the kids or the parents would have liked to receive toys instead. Anyway, the company isn’t partnering with me to promote their stuff but I just thought I’d share this gift idea since it’s something that every book lover should be aware of. 🙂
