Unicorn Oo Brings A Personalized Touch To Your Child’s Storytime | Book Review

Having your child part of reading time is always great and it is even more special when your child is the main character in the story. Bang on Books is a web store for personalized children’s books. The books are adventure stories where children’s photographs are magically transformed into illustrated characters that go on exciting adventures. The stories are all; hand illustrated, written and printed in house at their offices based in the UK.

We had the opportunity to review one of their personalized book options called, Unicorn Oo. It was simple to customize online and the only thing left was to receive it to read.

Unicorn Oo is an adorable adventure about a unicorn and all his friends. The main character of the story is your child; therefore, Nikki was the star of our book. Nikki was transported into this magical world to help Unicorn Oo and his friends stop a sorcerer from casting spells to make the weather bad. During their journey they help their friends and they teach the sorcerer the power of friendship.

#MelAndNikkiReview

Unicorn Oo has been a reading favorite ever since it arrived in our home. Nikki was thrilled to see her picture in the book and was excited to hear that she was the brave lead in the story. We loved the storyline and the message about kindness and friendship. Such important messages for our children to learn and Nikki loved that she was the one saving the day. One of Nikki’s favorite parts was singing Unicorn Oo’s special song.

“Clip – clop – Oo! Clippety – clop – Oo!”

The illustrations are beautifully hand drawned which to us makes it extra special. Unicorn Oo by Bang on Books encompasses all that we love in a book: personalization, great adventure, positive messaging and captivating illustrations. This is why we give Unicorn Oo, 5 clippety – clops out of 5!

This is why Unicorn Oo is on our recommended list. So we are thrilled to announce that we have a special offer for all our amazing readers! If you purchase Unicorn Oo or The Golden Key you can get 15% off the price of the books. Just use promo code: mommab15%.

My Little Lovebug and Love Notes Make The Perfect Gift

I See Me has become one of our favorites for personalized books as they always go beyond with the extra little touches to make someone feel special. This is why we were very excited to hear about a new release and just in time for Valentine’s Day! 😉

My Little Lovebug is a photo-personalized storybook featuring your loved ones’ photos and names. Every page is beautifully illustrated with a cute and cheeky saying, with illustrated text by Jeanine Murch.

We were fortunate to receive the hardcopy version of the book along with the adorable love notes.

We couldn’t wait to add this book to our reading line up and that same night that we received the book, we were reading it. Each page was beautifully designed with different animal characters with our faces (I have to admit that I look adorable as a lady bug and I need to add that my husband looks handsome as a bumble bee!). 😉

The word play in the book is brilliant! They use words relating to the character on each page into a positive and empowering word for the child. We just loved that! The creativity is remarkable as I don’t know how they come up with it all.

The book was very engaging and we enjoyed it from the beginning to end. The love notes that came with the book are illustrated as beautifully as the book and are great keepsakes. I will be sneaking them in my daughter’s bag when she isn’t looking as a way to remind her how much she is loved by all of us.

So for this #MelandNikkiReview I decided to change things up a little bit as I love to provide unique reviews specialized to each product or book we do (it’s the Momma Braga style). Since my daughter is now three years old and she has a wealth of vocabulary now, I asked her what she thought of it and what would she rate it.

Momma Braga: “Nikki did you like the book, Our Little Lovebug Nikki?”
Nikki: “I love the book so much Momma!”
Momma Braga: “What did you love the best about it?”
Nikki: “I love all the animals. They are so nice. I love our faces in them. It was funny!”
Momma Braga: “Do you remember what the book was about?”
Nikki: “Oh yes Momma! Everyone loves Nikki!”
Momma Braga: “Oh yes we do! How many ladybugs out of 5 would you give the book?”
Nikki: “Ten Momma.”

I would have to agree with Nikki on her quick recap of why Our Little LoveBug is so great. It has all the uniqueness magic that I See Me brings to stories and it brings so much love. It beautifully captures what we feel for our children in the most adorable way possible. We highly recommend this book to any parent who wants to tell their Little Lovebug in an unique way on how much they mean to them during storytime. As Nikki mentioned we give this book 10 ladybugs out of 5! 😉
