Tips on writing the story

  • Read the story below so you can see how your answers fit in the sentence

  • The story is written on behalf of the child. Select more than one child in the dropdown, and we'll change the story inside to be "Our Dad" etc.

  • Only use capitals where they are needed eg: proper names.

  • Remember punctuation if needed within your sentence (commas etc) - we'll add punctuation to the end if appropriate!

  • Include "the" if needed eg: "the park" and remember verbs eg: "playing football".

  • We read each book and will amend tenses etc, but will not amend your spelling or the content of your answer.

  • On the inside front cover we print a personalised message so they can treasure the book for years to come.


  • Tell us who the book is for (children's names), and select how many people the book is from - if it's more than one grandparent, all text will be changed to "We miss" etc.
