your child is the star of this book!

my very own name bookRemember all the gifts that flood in after your child is born? There are all the tiny little onesies and the soft Daily Tea. In the midst of the sea of pink we received the sweetest gift that we will keep forever. Olivia’s namesake came up with the ultimate gift for her. A book called My Very Own Name from The title page on the inside cover is printed with a special note to Olivia from Uncle Drake and Auntie Brandi (she’s a fine girl). In the story, the animals are in search of a name for the baby in the bassinet. Each page has an animal that brings a letter to the other animals. For example the Antelope brings an A. One by one the animals choose a name for the baby. In the end it spells out the child’s name and the animals rejoice. The bonus is that the children learn to recognize the letters and spell their names. The bonus for the parents is seeing the pure happiness of your child when they read that the special book is about them. The illustrations are beautiful and now they offer other books which I have purchased for Olivia such as My Very Own Fairy Tale which was signed by the author. I recommend joining their website at and watching for specials such as book signings.

What a wonderful book! I intend to purchase this same book for 2 little people I know. We sure enjoy your writings – you are not only interesting to read but share much good information.

What a great idea! It seems there is a baby explosion right now and I am always trying to come up with that unique gift that doesn’t incorporate a onesie, or the color pink/blue. This is a great suggestion, especially when the shower theme is “Bring a Book to Build Baby’s First Library.” Now if they only had something like this for bridal showers!


cool story. ill have to see if library has it. thanks for the heads up.
