We are now entering into a breathtaking new world with Biggest – that of reading to yourself for pleasure, and the magic and comfort that can bring. Reading is something that I have adored since before I can remember. Books have been my steadfast friends when I had no others, and through all manner of hardships. I have to admit, I have always hoped that Biggest would be as captivated by the fictional worlds between the pages as I am. In the last few months, his reading has accelerated at an amazing rate. When Librio asked us to try out their new personalised book, The Tree, The Key & Me, and I took a look at it, I just knew that Biggest would be enchanted by the story.
Biggest is now starting to read by himself, for pleasure, and I am so pleased that this delights him as much as I had hoped. You are never alone with a book.

The Tree, the Key & Me – Our Thoughts
I have reviewed several personalised books in the past, and this truly is one of the most captivating. The quality of the story, illustrations, and attention to detail are everything you would expect from a high quality children’s book. The personalisation is so much more than a gimmick. Yes, Children will love seeing themselves in the book. However, they will also genuinely return to this book again and again because the story is so engaging.
The story is so much more than something put together to showcase the personalisation. It is a compelling tale which is not too short or rushed. The plot is well thought out and executed. The illustrations are also stunning and really add a touch of magic.
Biggest was so excited to be able to take the book into school the next day. He received a gold star for reading some of it aloud and sharing with his classmates.
I think this would make a great gift, both for children who are beginning to read for themselves and younger children. I plan to get my daughter one for Christmas, as she also loved it.
