Christmas Gift Ideas: The Golden Ticket

Christmas can have a tough lead up if you are unsure of what to give to different people. So, over the next month I am going to be giving you lots of gift ideas for men, woman and children, hopefully covering all bases and all tastes. Today I am starting with a wonderful personalized gift from Wonderbly, who you may already know from their ‘Lost my Name‘ series of books.

Wonderbly books place your child at the centre of the action and story, they are personalised and can also feature images like your home to make the book even more unique. The latest adventure from Wonderbly is very familiar to anyone who is a fan of Roald Dahl. It is called ‘My Golden Ticket’ and takes the reader on a tour of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, putting your child into the role of Charlie Bucket from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The book is beautiful and makes the personalisation suitable for older readers. It has lots of things that make it of interest to an older, independent reader, with maps, instructions, song lyrics and experiments that are all illustrated with wonderful pictures that are both informative and funny. If your child loved the original Roald Dahl stories, they will be sure to fall in love with this book.

Another aspect of this book which makes it a perfect gift idea is that the personalisation extends to a personal message to the recipient.  This can be a message from Mom and dad to their child, or a message to any relative or friend. The book also has a bookplate in the form of a journal where your child’s name is also printed.

 

Fostering a love of books and reading is always a good thing, and there is no better way to get your child involved in reading than by having them actually in the story as a character. The Golden Ticket allows this in a wonderfully creative way,
