I'm a Name-O-Saurus - review of a Wonderbly personalised story for any dinosaur lover

Hi Everyone,

I am back with a review of yet another fun Wonderbly story that has recently been added to our collection. Please note: I am one of the Wonderbly Ambassadors, and I received the book as part of our collaboration - in order to provide you with an honest review of it. If you are not familiar with the personalised books for children by Wonderbly, please have a read through my blog post here, where I share their pros and cons (in my opinion) as well as mention some of our favourite options from their offer. 

First things first - I have to tell you that we have a big dinosaur lover in our household! Our little 4 year old Hanna is absolutely obsessed with anything dino-related, and she's definitely a proof that stereotypes (e.g. "dinosaurs are only for boys") are frequently wrong. Therefore, when Wonderbly kindly offered to send me the I'm a Name-O-Saurus story, I had no doubts that it would be popular with at least 50% of our offspring. :0) It was a no brainer - I chose for the book to be focused on Hanna, or should I say, our Hanna-O-Saurus. 

We got the hard cover version, which I was very excited about as these present themselves really well on the bookshelves. Hanna was delighted to be the protagonist of our new book, and she got even more excited when she realised that (in the story) she would get to spend some time amongst dinosaurs! There has been a lot of stomping, running, flapping, roaring and dancing in our house over the last few evenings, and the fun story even got Hanna's older sister engaged in dino-shenanigans!

The pictures & colours in I'm a Name-O-Saurus are really fantastic, and we have all been having lots of fun trying out various versions of new dino-names, based on all of our family members. The story has a decent rhythm to it, and I personally have really been enjoying reading it aloud - it's fun to emphasise all the various actions that Hanna & the dinos perform. The dinosaurs in the story are popular enough that both my daughters knew their names straight away & were able to tell them to me just from looking at the pictures, which was a proud moment for them. Finally, I also like how the story teaches kids that whilst they might not have certain skills that some of their friends might have, they too have abilities that they can share & teach to others. 

I really wish the story was available in more languages than English, but I am quite sure that Wonderbly are working on that in the background (fingers crossed). Also, I feel that the protagonist personalisation could do with a few additional options for each gender, e.g. longer/shorter hair, a few additional hairstyles, skin tones, etc. I have a feeling that the dino-themed story will be really popular, and so I secretly hope that the personalisation options will get reviewed & expanded. 

Do you have any dino-lovers in your family/amongst your friends? If so - consider gifting them this fun story, so that they can join in on the exciting adventure with some pterodactyls, triceratops, velociraptors and others.
