The Magic of My Name Storybook Review

A few weeks ago we were kindly offered the opportunity to receive and review a wonderful new story book. While Teagan is still young and has a short attention span, it’s clear she already has an interest in books and listening to stories. Looking forward I know that story time will be a big part of our bedtime routine. With that being said, I jumped at the chance to review The Magic of My Name story.

This book is about the amazing magic of your child’s name which means it’s completely personalized. I love anything that is personalized, especially books. I feel like it makes it so much more special than other books and provides a lifelong keepsake. These books are 100% personalized to the name whether it is 10 or 3 letters. Additionally, you get to personalize the character being either a boy or girl and then they took the additional step to be able to pick a little girl or boy that most closely aligns to your child as far as skin and hair color. The only downside is there is no redhead which was really sad for us but we are used to that and definitely not something that would ever deter us.

A fairy starts the story by visiting the child and helps the child discover the magic that is behind their name. They go on a wonderful adventure in order to figure this out. I won’t go into too much detail because I don’t want to ruin it but also because it is a personalized story to your child’s name so each storybook will be a little different.

I felt as though the story flowed very well and the illustrations were just wonderful. The story keeps you engaged and interested throughout. I was quite surprised by the overall quality of the book. The pages are thick and glossy which definitely makes it more durable when you have a little one that always wants to play with it.

I was given a hardcover storybook and it is very sturdy. There is a cheaper option cover which I can’t personally speak to the quality of but given how durable the pages are, I can imagine the softcover option would stand up just as well.

The story is a bit on the longer side, about 10-15 minutes, which is long past Teagan’s attention span at 11 months old so for now it’s a 3 night bedtime story. As she grows and she is more engaged, this will be the perfect amount of time.

Again, this book is completely personalized to your child’s name and the chosen avatar. It is very easy to make on their website and you can see everything in preview mode before finalizing it. Mine was obviously printed in English but it also comes in several other languages which I think is such an amazing option if you have a bilingual household.

This storybook is a perfect gift for a baby shower, birthday, or Christmas gift to add a little something special to the occasion. Each book starts $29.99 with a softcover and $4.99 extra for the hardcover, which I personally recommend. Kids are rough on books. Standard shipping is $5.99 and since this is a personalized item it will take roughly 10-15 days to make its way to you.

Since I have teamed with The Story Tailors to sponsor this post, they have been so kind as to provide my readers with a $5 off coupon code. Use promo code: TEAGAN when checking out. Be sure to get on and order your book quickly as this coupon is only valid now through June 7th. You can start your order here.

If you are on the hunt for that perfect gift or just a lifelong keepsake that is completely personalized, I cannot recommend this storybook enough. The Magic of My Name will be a go-to bedtime story for us for years to come.

**The Magic of My Name was given to us in exchange for my review but, as always, all thoughts and opinions are honest and my own.

  • Peace ✌🏼 out, Virginia! That’s a wrap on this beautiful chapter of our lives. We are so grateful for this home and the amazing memories we have been able to make. We brought both of these sweet babies home to this house so it is bittersweet. .
I’ve spent my entire life in Virginia but so excited for this new adventure and to be back in Cary’s home state! I can’t put into words how much we will miss our sweet friends that have become family and of course, my parents! But we can’t wait to host you all in our new home!! .

Thank you, VA! 💕💕

  • Packing up a weeks worth of supplements so I can pack all the bottles up for the big move next week. I know people (including my family) probably think I’m a complete whack for how many supplements I take daily but there is a method to the madness. My hope is that filling these little containers and taking good quality supplements daily to support all areas of my body will mean that later in life I’m not having to fill them with medications to stay alive and healthy. We are only given one body and I’m trying my best to keep it as healthy as I can so I’m here for my family longer! I’m curious to know, what supplements do you take daily to support your body?? 🥰

  • Today was Teagan’s last day of preschool in her 2 year old classroom. I’m not sure how the year flew by so fast but I’m even more shocked at how much she has grown and matured since the start of the school year. I wish so badly that I could freeze this age and bottled it up forever. She is such a kind, smart and beautiful girl and I pray she never changes or loses her joyful spirit 🥰 Swipe to see our first day of school picture 😂🤦🏼‍♀️ #teagankendall
  • This view will never get old. Seeing them play and laugh together has been the greatest joy of my life. I know it’ll only get better with time. Life might be chaotic with two young kids but I know without a doubt the greatest gift we could have ever given Teagan is this built in best friend 🥰 we hope everyone has a great weekend ❤️

  • Home of the free because of the brave 🇺🇸 We will never forget that freedom is never free and we enjoy these days with family because of those that paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting our freedoms. Our hearts are with those families today! ❤️ #memorialday2019 #godblessamerica #freedomisntfree #homeofthefreebecauseofthebrave #teagankendall #toddlermom #terrifictwos #almost3
  • Not the prettiest picture but this is our current reality. It hit us this morning that we only have 2 weekends left here in Virginia. We officially sell this house in a few days. It feels like a dream. I never imagined time moving so quickly. Things have been so busy and chaotic we haven’t really had a chance to even process the emotions that go along with closing a beautiful chapter of life. It’s bittersweet. I feel sad to leave our family and friends. I feel sad thinking Teagan won’t get sleepovers at my parents house. I feel sad we won’t be able to just pop over to a friends for a play date last minute. But I feel so excited to watch Teagan and Beau frolic around in their big backyard and have quality time with their aunt. I feel excited to explore a new city. I feel excited to make new friends and host our old ones in our new home. What a rollercoaster of emotions moving can be. 🌀

  • 8 M O N T H S🌈 I’m not sure how that happened. Still a big massive baby, still the happiest, sweet boy! Crawling around all over the place. Into everything. This month he really became obsessed with Teagan and everything she does. Has 4 teeth up top and 2 on the bottom. I wish I could say he was sleeping through the night but he still wakes up at least once. But I’m releasing myself from stressing over it, babies don’t keep so I’m just going to enjoy the nightly snuggle sessions while they are here. We sure do love you, baby Beau 💙
