It's probably not going to come as a surprise to anyone reading this blog, but The Boy is rather a big fan of Peppa Pig. There is something about the porcine family which completely captivates him and he adores 'reading' the massive selection of books that we have.
Recently I was invited to review one of the fabulous personalised Peppa Pig books available from Penwizard.co.uk, specifically the 'Peppa and ____ Go Swimming' book. The whole ordering process is incredibly simple to do and allows for personalisation of the child's hair, eye and skin colouring, along with hair style and the addition of glasses.
Our book arrived within a few days of ordering, and came in a sturdy cardboard envelope to prevent damage. The book cover is a high quality, glossy finish of A4 card, and each page inside is printed on thick quality paper and rich in colour.
The story follows one of the well-known Peppa Pig television programmes and as it is familiar to the children, it makes it even more endearing that they are now 'in' that story. The Boy makes an appearance about a third of the way into the story once the story has been introduced, and features on every page after that both with his name written down and as a character in the illustration.
The theme of this story shows The Boy as being capable of swimming with armbands, just like Peppa can. In reality, he can't and doesn't have a huge amount of confidence in a swimming pool refusing to completely let go of us. This book is useful because it actually shows The Boy being able to swim and how he can achieve this through using armbands, a float and leg movements; it's providing him with the knowledge that he will get there one day and this is how.
I'm a big fan of these personalised Peppa Pig books from Penwizard, and they have a number of different stories available.
'Peppa and [Your Child] Go Swimming' is available to buy from Penwizard.co.uk for the price of £14.99
