Once upon a time, there was a father,
He was reading out a story to his daughter.
“This is so boring,” the girl said, “I don’t like it,”
She closed the book in a hurry, did not even want to sit.
The father said in despair, “You don’t like books! What will you do?”
“I like books,” she replied, “But the ones which have my name too.”
“Your Name!” the father thought, “Let’s make a book on the same,”
Fun to read, lively to look at, it was called “Oh! My Name!”

“Oh! My Name” is a personalized children’s picture book. It is personalized using the letters of the child’s name.
“It is a perfect gift for anyone from 0 to 100 years”: Ritu Khoda, Award Winning Author.
The book is a collection of short rhyming stories with colorful illustrations.
The book is about a boy / girl who does not remember his / her name. He / She, along with a friend called "Dabi", decides to go on a journey to find his / her name. They meet various animals, go to different places and eventually get back the boy / girl's name, letter by letter.
E.g. In the “Oh! My Name” book made for a boy called “Neil”, the boy will hear a Nightingale (N) singing, come across a Chimpanzee (E) who does not want his hair cut, meet a very reclusive animal called "Ila Pika" (I) and then do a lot of HAHAHEHE with a Laughing Buddha (L). Each of these animals will give the boy an alphabet i.e. ‘N’,’E’,’I’ & ‘L’ which will eventually form his name “NEIL”.
Similarly, for names with different alphabets, there are different stories specific to those alphabets.
Yes, we have short stories on various topics e.g. Astronomy (star gazing with Galileo), Treasure hunt in a Pyramid, Showing kindness towards others, Learning why lying is not good etc.
Please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want a particular story / topic to be incorporated.
Yes, you can add the child’s photo on the 1st page i.e. the dedication message page along with a message for your child.
There is an 'Upload Photo' option where you can upload a photo of upto 500Kb. You can also mail the photo at email@example.com along with your order no.
For the book to be personalized, the child’s name should at least have 3 letters.
For a short name like “Uma”, the book will have 24 pages. For a long name like “Aaradhaya”, the book will have 44 pages. So the number of pages in the book depends on the length of the name of the child.
There will be a different story for repeating letters.
Yes, we can give you multiple books without any common story. Please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to know what all stories can be incorporated.
