My Way Home are personalized books for kids aged 0-9. Ideal gift for her or for him. They are handmade, unique, cute and educational. They inspire a love of travel as kids adventure through a range of countries while finding their way home.
The premise of the story is that each child finds themselves atop a strange mountain range. They ‘find their way home’ by adventuring through countries that spell out the name of their home country. As such to get to America, you’d travel through A for Aruba, M for Malawi, E for Egypt and so on. In this way, the book for a boy from Australia and the book for a girl from New Zealand are two very different stories.
This product is tailored for boys and girls from America, Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore and Scotland.
WHY CHOOSE MY WAY HOME?
Personalized gifts communicate and reinforce that a special connection with a loved one. Personalized books make us feel as though we’ve become an authentic part of the story – and with My Way Home, part of an adventure.
We want the children in our lives to be curious. We want them to be smart, well rounded, educated, aware and unique in their identity. We want them to have the best opportunities they can. My Way Home encourages all of this.
• My Way Home is customized to each child in several ways.
•The name, town and country of the child are printed across several pages of the book as an integrated part of the story. Each book is printed just for that child.
•The storyline of the book itself is customized based on the country the child is from.
• A personalized dedication - up to 300 characters will be printed right into the book.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
Inspired by a love of travel, this book is written to inspire the next generation of adventurers. It was really important to me to inspire both explorational dreams and help the next generation discover the wider world beyond them. I remember many adventures I took from my bedroom as a kid - and wanted to bring some of that, in a personalized way, to other kids - everywhere.
A sense of home and sense of place is a key part of our identity - and as such, customizing this story to be about coming back to our home country - while at the same time telling small stories of other countries seemed like a natural fit.
In the true spirit of the book, the concept was written by a New Zealander, while traveling across several countries - illustrated by an Argentinian, (yes, while in Argentina) - with additional input from an editor in England!
Discovery is a theme running through this story. From the discovery of new ‘places and faces’ or interacting with elements within the storyline to uncovering the whereabouts of the adventurous Teddy to finding the hidden country shapes or unlocking the clues, there is a sense discovery to be had for all ages.
The educational side is very important. Each country story - while simple, is all grounded in the story of the place, or of the character from that place. The language is designed to be approachable while extending vocabulary - and to top it off there's snippets from other languages... Hint - if you're reading it out loud - just go for it! (Funny accents always help lol)
Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
